Goals by Kane and Ladd help Jets earn come-from-behind 4-2 win over Devils

NEWARK, N.J. - Evander Kane scored a breakaway goal in the second period, and Andrew Ladd added some insurance in the third to lift the Winnipeg Jets over the New Jersey Devils 4-2 on Sunday.

Zach Bogosian scored in the first period, and Grant Clitsome had a power-play goal in the second for the Jets, who have won three of the first four of a five-game trip that concludes Tuesday in New York against the Rangers. Ondrej Pavelec made 26 saves.

Travis Zajac and Steve Bernier had goals for New Jersey, but the Devils (10-5-4) lost their fourth in five games and their second at home this season. Johan Hedberg, a late-minute replacement for Martin Brodeur, stopped 23 shots.

Brodeur left the ice in pregame warmups because of "a little soreness," the Devils said.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
