March 26, 2007

newjerseydevils.com – The Devils have company.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have pulled even with New Jersey atop the Atlantic Division after Sidney Crosby posted two goals and an assist in a 5-0 Pittsburgh win over Boston on Sunday.

But if New Jersey (44-23-8, 96 pts.) has its way, the deadlock won’t last long. The Devils could regain sole possession of first place with a win over the Islanders (36-27-12, 84 pts.) on Tuesday night. The Penguins will visit Washington.

Jim Dowd is a big reason why New Jersey is still tied with the Pens. Dowd scored twice against the Panthers in Saturday’s 4-3 shootout victory, evening the score after the Devils had fallen behind 2-1 and 3-2. It was the Brick, N.J.-native’s first-career two-goal game.

That helped set up a shootout, where New Jersey won on the strength of Martin Brodeur’s two stops and Travis Zajac’s deciding goal. The Devils snapped a three-game losing streak and nailed down their fourth win over their last eight contests.

For Brodeur, it was win No. 43 on the season, tying his career-high, and putting him within four wins of Bernie Parent’s single-season record of 47. The Devils have seven regular season games remaining.

Travis Zajac had an assist against Florida to continue his point-scoring streak to five games. Zajac has been red-hot of late, with seven points in his last eight contests.

After the Devils’ island getaway, it’s off to Buffalo for a meeting with the Sabres (48-20-7, 103 pts.) on Wednesday.

The East-leading Sabres have won four of their last six, but will enter their match-up with the Devils off of a 4-1 loss to Toronto on Saturday. After going 4-for-9 with the man advantage in two previous games, the Sabres power play unit went 0-for-4 against the Leafs in the defeat.

The Devils will return home on Friday to face the Flyers after having completed their second five-game road trip of the season. It will be New Jersey’s seventh meeting of the season with Philadelphia, which will host the Devils in the season series finale on April 5.

Brodeur and the Devils lead the series 5-0-1, but those five wins have been anything but easy. Four of them have been one-goal games, and no contest between the two teams this season has been decided by more than two goals.
 
New Jersey dropped its last meeting with the Flyers, 5-4 in overtime, back on March 6.

The Devils play the second game of their three-game homestand on Sunday, April 1, when they host the Boston Bruins. Due to a change in the league’s broadcast schedule, the start time has been changed to 3:30 p.m.
