Post-game report: New Jersey 5 Ottawa 3
false

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Zach Parise, Grant Marshall and Jamie Langenbrunner scored first-period goals and the New Jersey Devils held off the Ottawa Senators 5-3 Wednesday night to end a two-game losing streak.

Sergei Brylin and Eric Rasmussen also scored for the Devils, and Martin Brodeur made 27 saves.

Antoine Vermette, Dany Heatley and Patrick Eaves scored for the Northeast Division-leading Senators, who lost their second straight game.

Parise got New Jersey started 1:40 into the game after Brylin intercepted a pass between Ottawa defensemen Zdeno Chara and Chris Phillips, and sent the puck cross-ice to Parise for the tip past Dominik Hasek.

The next two goals were deflections - only one intentional. Marshall deflected Paul Martin's point shot past Hasek for a power-play goal at 14:39.

Langenbrunner was credited with the goal that made it 3-0 at 15:23 when Ottawa defenseman Christoph Schubert deflected the shot into his own goal.

The Senators cut deficit to 3-1 when Vermette knocked Brian McGrattan's rebound past Brodeur with 2:25 remaining in the first.

Heatley brought Ottawa within one at 7:44 of the second.

Brylin took a pass from Marshall and beat Hasek on the power play with 23 seconds remaining in the period to make it 4-2. Rasmussen scored his first goal in 32 games, at 2:59 of the third, to restore the Devils' three-goal lead.

Eaves closed out the scoring 2:45 later.

Notes: The Devils expect their first home sellout of the season on Friday when they retire former captain Scott Stevens' No. 4. ... Parise's score ended a Devils' record span of 1:54:05 without a goal. ... Ottawa opened a three-game road trip that takes them to Pittsburgh and Buffalo.
