EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Patrik Elias scored two goals and the New Jersey Devils held Calgary without a shot while killing off a five-minute penalty in a 3-1 win Sunday over the Flames.
Scott Gomez assisted on both goals, giving him 10 assists in six games, and Martin Brodeur had 18 saves as the Devils won for the fourth time in six games (4-1-1).
Chuck Kobasew scored a power-play goal for the Flames, whose three-game losing streak matches its season high.
Senators 6, Penguins 3
PITTSBURGH Martin Havlat scored three goals, two late in the game during a four-point day, and Ottawa ran Pittsburgh's winless streak to a club record-tying 18 straight.
Milan Kraft and Ryan Malone scored in the second period as Pittsburgh tied it after trailing 2-0 and 3-1, but the Penguins still lost their 18th in a row (0-17-0-1) the most ever by an NHL team. The streak won't make the NHL record book because it includes an overtime loss Feb. 14 in St. Louis.
The Penguins did extend their league-record home losing streak to 14, three more than any other team in NHL history.
Ottawa gained first place in the NHL's overall standings with 81 points, moving past the idle Red Wings, Flyers and Maple Leafs, all of which have 80 points.

Minnesota, which scored 10 goals it its previous two games, generated more scoring chances throughout, but went 0-for-5 on the power play.
