Penguins Vs. Devils Score Update: New Jersey Holds Early 2-0 Lead

The Pittsburgh Penguins are trying to bounce back after their loss to the Philadelphia Flyers, but they're not off to a good start, down 2-0 to the New Jersey Devils after the first period. Ilya Kovalchuk hit the scoreboard first, scoring on a penalty shot after Brooks Orpik covered the puck in the crease and the Devils were awarded a penalty shot.

Devils David Clarkson picked up the second goal on a power play after Jordan Staal was called for slashing. The goal was assisted by Patrik Elias and Ilya Kovalchuk. If the Penguins want to get back in the game, they'll need to stop making so many mental mistakes. The Penguins have been served up with eight penalty minutes already, compared to just two by the Devils.
