Devils fourth-straight victory snaps Penguins five-game win streak

NHL Roundup

NEWARK, N.J. — Adam Henrique and Bobby Butler scored power-play goals 2:12 apart in the third period, and the New Jersey Devils extended their winning streak to four games with a 3-1 victory over Pittsburgh on Saturday that snapped the Penguins' five-game winning streak.

Ilya Kovalchuk assisted on the late goals, and defenseman Andy Greene had two assists, including the primary one on rookie Stefan Matteau's first NHL goal.

Martin Brodeur made 24 saves and provided a little humor by chasing his stick late in the second period of his 1,200th career game. He became the first NHL goalie to reach the milestone.

Penguins captain Sidney Crosby had a six-game point streak snapped, his longest since a career-high, 25-game run in 2010.

Brandon Sutter scored early for the Penguins, who gave the Devils 10 power-play chances. The teams will play again Sunday in Pittsburgh.

CAPITALS 5, PANTHERS 0

WASHINGTON — Troy Brouwer scored two goals and Braden Holtby stopped 27 shots and assisted on Brouwer's second goal and Washington shut out Florida in the opener of a home-and-home series.

Mathieu Perreault and Joel Ward each added a goal and an assist, and Alex Ovechkin also scored for Washington (3-8-1), which snapped a three-game losing streak.

It was the first time Washington has scored more than three goals in a game this season.

The teams will play at Florida (4-6-1) on Tuesday.

FLYERS 4, HURRICANES 3, OT

PHILADELPHIA — Danny Briere scored 1:47 into overtime to lift Philadelphia over Carolina.

Jakub Voracek, Matt Read and Brayden Schenn also scored for Philadelphia, which went 3-0-1 on a four-game homestand.

Joe Corvo scored the tying goal in the third period, and Jiri Tlusty and Jeff Skinner also had goals for the Hurricanes, who had won two in a row.

The Flyers have gone 24-4-4 against the Hurricanes since Nov. 28, 2003. Philadelphia is 5-6-1 at the quarter point of the lockout-shortened 48-game schedule. Carolina fell to 5-4-1.
