PITTSBURGH (Ticker) -- The Pittsburgh Penguins have a great chance to replace the New Jersey Devils atop the Atlantic Division.

The Penguins, who are in search of their first three-game winning streak in over two years, host the first-place Devils on Tuesday.

Pittsburgh claimed its first winning streak of the season with a 5-3 victory over Columbus on Saturday. It also closed within a point of New Jersey, which absorbed its second straight loss with an 8-1 setback at Ottawa on Saturday.

The Penguins have not won three straight games since March 2004.

First-round draft pick Jordan Staal scored two goals and Mark Recchi added two assists for the Penguins, who went 3-for-9 on the power play. Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury made 36 saves.

Brian Gionta netted the lone goal while goaltenders Martin Brodeur and Scott Clemmensen combined to surrender all eight goals on 38 shots for the Devils.

New Jersey went 5-2-1 against Pittsburgh last season, and claimed a 2-1 victory behind 37 saves by Brodeur last Wednesday.
