New Jersey and Pittsburgh entered Saturday with identical records, but the Devils' win and the Penguins' regulation-time loss to Atlanta gave the division crown to New Jersey.
The Devils also remained one point ahead of Buffalo in the race for the second seed in the Eastern Conference. The Devils play the Sabres Sunday in a season-ending, head-to-head contest for the lofty playoff slot.
The Islanders were led by Matt Moulson, who notched his team-leading 29th goal.
