BUFFALO, New York (Ticker) -- The New Jersey Devils have a good chance to record their first three-game winning streak of the season when they visit the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday.

After a 3-2 victory over the Sabres on October 28, the Devils improved to 8-0-3 in the series since the 2001-2002 season. With Martin Brodeur sidelined with a knee injury, Scott Clemmensen made 25 saves and Sergei Brylin scored with 5:23 left for the Devils.

Brodeur returned for a home-and-home series with Washington on Friday and Saturday, and the Devils won both games to move over the .500 mark. The reigning Vezina Trophy winner made 18 saves and Grant Marshall scored the third of three power-play goals in Saturday's 3-2 triumph. Jamie Langenbrunner added a goal and an assist.

The Sabres fell to 2-6-0 since starting goaltender Ryan Miller was lost to a fractured right thumb with Saturday's 6-1 loss to Ottawa.

After allowing the league's top offense the first six goals, the Sabres managed only a singular tally by Derek Roy late in the third period. Martin Biron, who is 1-5-2 all-time against New Jersey, made 31 saves in falling to 2-4-0 this season.

Perhaps the Sabres can feed off the emotion of a pre-game ceremony when five new members will be inducted into the team's Hall of Fame, including former captain Mike Foligno.
