UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) — Johan Hedberg made 22 saves for his 22nd career shutout, and Steve Bernier scored two of New Jersey’s three third-period goals in the Devils’ 3-0 victory over the New York Islanders on Sunday.
The game was scoreless until Bernier broke the deadlock with a power-play goal with 3:54 remaining. He doubled New Jersey’s lead just 1:10 later, and David Clarkson sealed the win with an empty-net goal in the final minute as the Devils snapped a four-game losing streak (0-1-3).
Hedberg’s biggest save came 8:08 into the third period when he denied Michael Grabner on a short-handed breakaway.
Evgeni Nabokov was strong in making 24 saves for New York. His best stop was 2:05 into the second when he snared a drive by Patrik Elias following Brian Strait’s giveaway in the Islanders zone.
