Palmieri scores twice in third to lead Devils past Islanders

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Maybe the New Jersey Devils should retire more numbers. Every time they do it, they win.

Kyle Palmieri scored two third-period goals and the Devils opened some daylight on the New York Islanders in the race for a wild-card playoff berth and made those attending Patrik Elias' jersey retirement go home happy with a 2-1 victory Saturday night.

"Actually I saw a stat ... tweeted out that we were undefeated so we had to keep that going," Palmieri said after leading the Devils' comeback. "It was cool. It was a pretty cool event any time you're a part of this. I've been in a couple of ceremonies in the past and it's cool to celebrate the guys you grew up watching."
