New Jersey Devils, Pittsburgh Penguins

Penguins Beat Devils 4-1 with 3rd-Period Burst

PITTSBURGH — Jared McCann and John Marino scored 25 seconds apart in the third period to boost the Pittsburgh Penguins past the New Jersey Devils 4-1 on Friday night.

Jake Guentzel had his team-leading 11th goal for Pittsburgh and Dominik Kahun added his sixth of the season to help the Penguins snap a four-game winless streak at home against New Jersey.

Tristan Jarry trimmed his goals-against average to 1.81 by stopping 36 shots, weathering an early second-period surge from the Devils, then coasting after Guentzel’s pretty backhander just past the midway point gave the Penguins the momentum they would need.
