DEVILS SCORE TWICE IN SECOND AND HOLD OFF PENGUINS

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – New Jersey rallied for a pair of second-period goals to give the Devils a 2-1 win over the Penguins on Thursday.

Jani Rita’s centering pass deflected off New Jersey defenseman Ken Klee and went into the net 8:53 into the period. There were no assists on the play.

John Madden poked in a rebound to tie the game at 1-all 5:51 into the second.

Brian Gionta rifled a shot past Marc-Andre Fleury on a breakaway to give the Devils a 2-1 lead with 2:35 left in the period.

Neither team scored in the third as the Devils snapped the Penguins’ two-game win streak. Pittsburgh managed only 14 shots on goal in the game.

The Penguins return to action Saturday at 7 p.m. in Montreal.
