PITTSBURGH, April 2 (UPI) -- A goal by Brian Gionta with 2:38 left in overtime Sunday gave the New Jersey a 3-2 victory over Pittsburgh.

Gionta's 42nd goal of the year came on a 2-on-1 scoring opportunity.

Jay Pandolfo and Patrik Elias scored the other goals; Gionta, Paul Martin, John Madden, Brian Rafalski and Sergei Brylin all had assists; and Martin Brodeur made 24 saves for New Jersey (39-27-9), which took over sole possession of sixth place in the Eastern Conference, two points ahead of idle Montreal. The Devils have won four out of seven games between the two teams this season and Gionta has scored seven goals in those contests.

Sidney Crosby had a goal and an assist; Colby Armstrong scored once; Ryan Whitney had two assists; and Marc-Andre Fleury made 36 stops on 39 New Jersey shots for the Penguins (19-42-13), who have lost three of their last four games.
