Devils too hot for Penguins
New Jersey's Randy McKay
McKay "could do no wrong" against the Penguins
Pittsburgh Penguins 0-9 New Jersey Devils

Randy McKay and John Madden went on a scoring spree that left team-mates shaking their heads in disbelief as Stanley Cup champions New Jersey Devils crushed the Pittsburgh Penguins 9-0.

McKay and Madden each scored four goals and Martin Brodeur made 22 saves for his 43rd career shut-out.

The result was Pittsburgh's worst home defeat in franchise history and it enabled the Devils to move past the Penguins into first place in the Atlantic Division.

"The only time I can remember doing it was back when I played high school hockey back in Montreal," McKay said of his four-goal effort.

Guys were shaking their heads at me. I could do no wrong out there

The last pair of team-mates to score four goals in a game was Odie and Sprague Cleghorn of the Montreal Canadiens, who did it against the Hamilton Tigers on 14 January, 1922.

"Guys were shaking their heads at me. I could do no wrong out there," said McKay.

Florida Panthers 3-1 Ottawa Senators

At Florida, Pavel Bure scored a short-handed goal in the second period and sealed a 3-1 win over Ottawa with an empty net tally as the Panthers won for the first time this year and handed the Senators their first loss.

With the Panthers down a man, Jaroslav Spacek dug the puck out at the left point and sprung Bure, who backhanded it off the left goalpost and in for his fourth goal and a 2-0 lead.

Ottawa was off to the best start in club history (6-0-3), while Florida had been the last team in the NHL without a win.

St Louis Blues 4-3 Dallas Stars

In St. Louis, Pierre Turgeon scored two goals and set up two, including Al MacInnis's goal just 15 seconds into overtime, to lead the Blues to a 4-3 victory over the Dallas Stars.

Turgeon, who had tied the game at 3-3 52 seconds into the third period, won a face-off in the neutral zone and made a cross-ice pass to MacInnis, who wristed the puck past Dallas goaltender Ed Belfour for the overtime victory.

Turgeon opened the scoring at 8 minutes 21 seconds of the first period and also set up Scott Young's league-leading 11th goal. Mike Modano had two goals and an assist for Dallas.

Curtis Joseph stopped 27 shots for the Maple Leafs.

Montreal Canadiens 1-2 New York Islanders

Roman Hamrlik and Dave Scatchard scored 28 seconds apart early in the third period and Wade Flaherty made 33 saves as the New York Islanders handed the Canadiens a 2-1defeat for the second night in a row.

With Ottawa's loss to Florida, the Avalanche are the only unbeaten team in the NHL.

Pheonix Coyotes 3-1 Los Angeles Kings
