NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Evander Kane scored a breakaway goal in the second period, and Andrew Ladd added some insurance in the third to lift the Winnipeg Jets over the New Jersey Devils 4-2 on Sunday.
Zach Bogosian scored in the first period, and Grant Clitsome had a power-play goal in the second for the Jets, who have won three of the first four of a five-game trip that concludes Tuesday in New York against the Rangers. Ondrej Pavelec made 26 saves.
Travis Zajac and Steve Bernier had goals for New Jersey, but the Devils (10-5-4) lost their fourth in five games and their second at home this season. Johan Hedberg, a late-minute replacement for Martin Brodeur, stopped 23 shots.
Brodeur left the ice in pregame warmups because of “a little soreness,” the Devils said.
