Penguins Defeat Devils For 10th Straight Victory

The Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the visiting New Jersey Devils 2-1 on Monday night for their tenth victory in their last ten contests.

The Penguins, without the injured Evgeni Malkin for the second consecutive game, were once again lead by the NHL’s reigning player of the month Sidney Crosby, who put up an assist and the game-winning goal. Marc-Andre Fleury made 27 saves on 28 shots, continuing his run of strong play.

The Devils jumped on the board first from Brian Rolston’s power play goal before Chris Kunitz equalized just over a minute later for the Penguins. Crosby would then score the eventual game-winner midway through the second period.

Penguins expatriate Johan Hedberg made 32 saves on 34 shots for the Devils, but had to take the loss. The win gives the Penguins an NHL-leading 40 points, at 19-8-2, while the Devils sit second from the bottom of the Eastern Conference at 8-17-2.

The Penguins' next contest comes against the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday.
