OTTAWA - Zach Parise and David Clarkson each had a goal and an assist on the power play and the New Jersey Devils won their eighth straight road game with a 3-2 comeback victory over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night.

The Devils are 8-0 away from New Jersey, the second-longest road winning streak to open a season in NHL history. The Buffalo Sabres started 10-0 on the road to start the 2006-07 season.

New Jersey's power play led the way, scoring three unanswered goals. Parise, Clarkson and Andy Greene had goals for the Devils. Martin Brodeur faced 21 shots.

Milan Michalek and Brian Lee scored for the Senators. Pascal Leclaire, celebrating his 27th birthday, stopped 22 shots.

Leclaire got off to a solid start making a big pad save on Jamie Langenbrunner and robbing Niclas Bergfors with a glove stop.

The Senators opened the scoring at 14:00 of the first after creating a flurry of great chances. Daniel Alfredsson found Michalek, who beat Brodeur short side.

Ottawa made it 2-0 midway through the second on Lee's first goal of the season. Lee carried the puck from his own end and let a wrist shot go that just slipped under Brodeur's left leg. Brodeur sprawled to grab the puck, but it had already trickled across the line.

The Devils cut the lead in half with a power-play goal as Parise was able to pick the puck out of traffic in front and raise it over Leclaire.

New Jersey tied it in the third as Clarkson beat Leclaire through the legs. Greene made it 3-2 with a shot from the point that got past the screened goalie.

Senators centre Jesse Winchester played his first game of the season after missing the first 13 because of a knee injury. He spent the previous two weeks with the American Hockey League's Binghamton Senators on a conditioning stint.

NOTES: The Senators have not beaten the Devils since Oct. 27, 2007. ... The Senators were without D Anton Volchenkov (elbow, 2-3 weeks) ... The Devils were missing D Johnny Oduya (lower body, indefinite), C Rob Niedermayer (upper body, indefinite), D Paul Martin, (forearm fracture, four weeks) and LW Jay Pandolfo (shoulder, four weeks) ... New Jersey's Patrik Elias was a healthy scratch. Elias returned to the Devils lineup for Friday's home win over the Islanders after missing the first 13 games following groin surgery. He was held out from playing consecutive games for precautionary reasons ... The Senators are at home Tuesday night to face the Edmonton Oilers (7:30 p.m., Rogers Sportsnet, Team 1200). Before then, the B-Sens take on the Hamilton Bulldogs in an AHL matchup at Scotiabank Place on Sunday (3 p.m., Rogers 22).
