Game Story

PITTSBURGH (Ticker) -- Randy McKay and John Madden showed that the New Jersey Devils are not always a defensive-minded team.

McKay and Madden each tied a team record by scoring four goals and Martin Brodeur easily posted his 43rd career shutout as New Jersey embarrassed the Pittsburgh Penguins, 9-0.

Pat Verbeek was the only other player in team history to score four goals in a game, doing it in an 8-6 victory over Minnesota on February 28, 1988.

Ironically, Verbeek and Brendan Shanahan were the last set of Devils' teammates to record hat tricks in the same game, doing it in an 8-1 rout of Toronto on February 13, 1989.

Turner Stevenson also scored for New Jersey, which jumped ahead of Pittsburgh into first place in the Atlantic Division.

"Those were all the things we talked about that we did tonight," Devils coach Larry Robinson said. "It was a great game all around. I can't remember when we moved the puck as well. We were on the puck all night. They all contributed. I'm very happy with everybody tonight."

New Jersey tied the team record for the largest margin of victory. It had posted two previous 9-0 wins, against San Jose on October 26, 1991 and at Atlanta on March 10.

After Stevenson opened the scoring 2:02 into the game, Madden doubled the advantage almost three minutes later by converting Sergei Nemchinov's cross-ice feed past goaltender Jean-Sebastien Aubin. McKay scored twice later in the period to push the lead to 4-0.

Garth Snow replaced Aubin at the start of the second period and did not fare any better. Madden scored his second of the game at the 11:10 mark before McKay completed his third career hat trick 82 seconds later. They each tallied again in a 73-second span late in the session.

"I was in the right spot in the right time tonight," McKay said. "It was one of those nights where every time I touched the puck, I felt I had a shot."

Madden, who switched from center to left wing, completed his amazing night with just over four minutes remaining. He gathered Ed Ward's pass along the right boards before firing a turnaround shot that eluded Snow.

"I scored one, I was happy with one," Madden said. "The puck was coming my way.

"We played solid both ways. Moving to left wing was not that big an adjustment. Sometimes out there you get more ice."

The last pair of teammates to score four goals in a game was Odie and Sprague Cleghorn of the Montreal Canadiens, who did it against the Hamilton Tigers on January 14, 1922.

"I scored five one time in high school," McKay said. "Tonight, every time I jumped up, somebody got me the puck."'

The Devils had 31 shots through the first two periods and finished with a 42-21 advantage.

"I think the key was we held Pittsburgh's offensive team to three shots in the first period," McKay said.

Hidden in the offensive explosion was the play of Brodeur, who made 22 saves for his first shutout of the season. He improved to 4-2-2.

"The last three shutouts have been like that," Brodeur said. "Six shots the last time and then this. I was pretty anxious. It's difficult for the defense by being so many goals ahead. Sometimes you need a game like that. This should give us more confidence."

Pittsburgh suffered its worst home defeat in franchise history, besting four previous eight-goal losses. Its biggest defeat overall was a 12-0 setback at Montreal on February 22, 1979.

"I would like to say I'm sorry to the people who bought the tickets," Penguins coach Ivan Hlinka said. "I would like to say thanks to the people who stayed for the finish. I believe we are not a bad team like tonight. I hope we will show our face over the next game and the next week."

Pittsburgh has lost two of three and is 3-9-0 against New Jersey here since the start of the 1995-96 season.
