Chris Kunitz had a goal and two assists, and Kris Letang and Robert Bortuzzo each scored a goal for Pittsburgh, who improved to 1-2-0 on their home ice.

Marc-Andre Fleury earned the win with 15 saves.

Martin Brodeur was shelled for five goals on 30 shots as the Devils dropped their fourth straight.

Andy Greene scored New Jersey's only goal.
