Erik Christensen had a goal and assist during Pittsburgh's three-goal second period, and the injury- and illness-plagued Penguins rallied from a pair of deficits to beat the New Jersey Devils, 4-2, last night in Newark.

In the first game after the All-Star break, the Penguins beat the Devils for the fifth straight time in New Jersey and they did it without Sidney Crosby (ankle), Colby Armstrong (flu), and Tyler Kennedy (mononucleosis).

Jordan Staal got Pittsburgh even at 1 early in the second and Christensen and Ryan Malone struck less than two minutes apart to put the Penguins in front.

Sharks 3, Oilers 0 - Evgeni Nabokov earned his sixth shutout with only 13 saves and host San Jose won its third game in a row.

Joe Pavelski, Mike Grier and Patrick Rissmiller scored for San Jose, which had lost four straight before putting together their run.

Hurricanes 3, Rangers 1 - Rod Brind'Amour and Sergei Samsonov scored in the second period, and Trevor Letowski added an insurance goal in the third to power host Carolina past New York in a physical contest that saw 66 penalty minutes issued in the first period.

Carolina's Scott Walker and New York's Sean Avery received roughing minors before the puck dropped. The Rangers' Colton Orr and the Hurricanes' Wade Brookbank fought shortly thereafter.

Senators 5, Islanders 2 - Mike Fisher had a goal and an assist to power visiting Ottawa, which won for just the third time in eight games.

Blues 3, Maple Leafs 2 - Keith Tkachuk scored on his team's first two shots to help visiting St. Louis snap a seven-game (0-5-2) winless streak.

Flyers 3, Kings 2 - A sliding Scott Hartnell unintentionally kicked in a goal with 28.5 seconds left in overtime to lift host Philadelphia.

Coyotes 4, Blue Jackets 2 - Peter Mueller scored twice and visiting Phoenix scored three third-period goals to beat host Columbus.

Sabres 4, Lightning 2 - Jason Pominville scored a goal and had two assists as Buffalo slipped past host Tampa Bay.

Canadiens 4, Capitals 0 - Cristobal Huet stopped 35 shots in his second shutout of the season and Mark Streit had a goal and an assist to lead host Montreal.

Stars 4, Canucks 3 - Mike Modano and Stephane Robidas scored three minutes apart early in the second period and Marty Turco made 29 saves to lead visiting Dallas.
