BUFFALO, N.Y. - Adam Henrique scored twice and added an assist and the New Jersey Devils won their fourth straight with a 4-3 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night.

Mike Cammalleri had a goal and two assists, and David Schlemko also scored for the Devils. New Jersey hasn't lost since starting the season 0-3-1.

Tyler Ennis, Ryan O'Reilly and Jack Eichel scored for Buffalo. Rookie goaltender Linus Ullmark made his NHL debut for the Sabres (2-6-0).

Buffalo lost Evander Kane to an apparent left leg injury midway through the third period. A high-profile addition last season, Kane needed to be helped off the ice and did not return.

Cammalleri's goal tied it 2-2 8:57 into the second, and then Schlemko put New Jersey ahead with 49 seconds left in the period.

About midway through the third, Ennis mishandled a puck at the Devils' blue line and Henrique scored on a shorthanded breakaway with a backhand shot past Ullmark.
