Penguins avoid being swept by Devils, beat New Jersey 4-3

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) The Pittsburgh Penguins seem to be getting their act together for a playoff push and one clear sign of that is finally finding a way to beat the New Jersey Devils.

Bryan Rust scored a tiebreaking goal midway through the second period and the Penguins avoided the embarrassment of being swept by the lowly Devils with a 4-3 victory on Tuesday night.

"Even last year, it was kind of the same way," said Zach Aston-Reese, who scored for the Penguins along with Chad Ruhwedel and Nick Bjugstad. "They had our number. It's nice to get that one, especially going down the stretch to the playoffs. Those are important wins."
