Red-hot Henrique scores twice, Devils beat fading Hurricanes 5-4

NEWARK, N.J. - Tuomo Ruutu scored with 6:30 to play against his former teammates, and the New Jersey Devils earned a 5-4 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes after squandering a three-goal lead Saturday night.

Red-hot Adam Henrique added two more goals, and Travis Zajac and Damien Brunner had the others as the usually defensive-minded Devils had another lax game in their own end.

Jeff Skinner, Jay Harrison, Nathan Gerbe and Alexander Semin scored for Carolina, which has lost seven of eight. Gerbe and Semin tallied in the third period to make it 4-4.

Ruutu, acquired by New Jersey from Carolina on Wednesday, scored the game winner with a shot from between the circles that was set up by an outstanding play by defenceman Marek Zidlicky.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
