NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — David Clarkson scored twice and set up New Jersey’s other goal, and Pat Elias matched his career best with three assists to lead the Devils to a 3-1 victory over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night in their first meeting since last spring’s Eastern Conference finals.

The Devils won that series in six games, and they still had the Rangers’ number in getting 24 saves from Martin Brodeur.

Rangers nemeses Adam Henrique ended that series with an overtime goal in Game 6, and he picked up right where he left off, scoring in close five minutes after the opening faceoff to give the Devils a lead they would never lose.

Chris Kreider scored for the Rangers, who have yet to jell this season despite adding scoring star Rick Nash. Henrik Lundqvist had 19 saves.
