Adam Henrique and Bobby Butler scored power-play goals during a 2:12 span 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, as the Devils avenged a 5-1 loss to the Penguins last week.

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 play that many.

Brandon Sutter scored early for Pittsburgh, which couldn't stay out of the penalty box. The teams will play again on Sunday in Pittsburgh.
