EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- The Pittsburgh Penguins catch a break Tuesday as they kick off a five-game road trip against the New Jersey Devils, who will not have their Hall of Fame netminder between the pipes.

Pittsburgh got off to the worst start in franchise history, going 0-4-5 before finally posting a 7-5 victory vs. Atlanta on Thursday. The Penguins had a chance for a winning streak as they led, 3-1, in the third period Saturday against Carolina before surrendering three goals in a 4 1/2-minute span en route to a 5-3 loss.

The Penguins now embark on their longest road trip of the season, but at least they won't have to face Martin Brodeur, who is 22-15-4 in his career against Pittsburgh. The two-time Vezina Trophy winner is out with a sprained knee and is listed as day-to-day.

Scott Clemmensen actually has played well in his place, going 2-0-0 while stopping 52 of 58 shots. The backup turned away two of three attempts in the shootout as New Jersey edged Boston, 5-4, on Saturday.

Viktor Kozlov scored twice for the Devils, who also got goals from Alexander Mogilny and Jay Pandolfo in winning for the fourth time in six games.

New Jersey already is 2-0-0 against Pittsburgh this season, having outscored them by a combined 11-4 score, including a 5-1 victory here on Opening Night.
