Devils halt Penguins' winning streak at seven, 4-1

BY foxsports • October 25, 2009

New Jersey coach Jacques Lemaire said the Devils played as well as they can. It's taken that type of effort to beat Pittsburgh so far this season.

Nicklas Bergfors, Travis Zajac and Zach Parise each had a goal and an assist and the Devils snapped the Penguins' winning streak at seven with a 4-1 victory Saturday night.

Mark Fraser added his first career goal, and Martin Brodeur made 32 saves for the Devils, who have beaten the two teams with the most points in the Eastern Conference the past three days. They beat the New York Rangers 4-2 on Thursday night.

"I think that we played a really good, tight game," Lemaire said after his team improved to 5-0 on the road for the first time in team history. "We didn't give them much.

"I really enjoyed the game because we had no passengers; everyone did their job and was good with the puck. (The Penguins) were waiting for a little life, which we never gave them."
