THE NEW JERSEY Devils signed center Travis Zajac to a long-term contract. Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello announced the deal on Wednesday, shortly after Zajac scored a goal in a scrimmage against Albany of the AHL. The deal will run 8 years, and pay Zajac, who should be the No. 1 center this season, $46 million. Lamoriello said the two sides had started to work on the new contract before the NHL lockout began in September. They finished it after the league and its players finalized a new 10-year collective bargaining agreement.

Travis Zajac scored at 5 minutes, 39 seconds of overtime and the New Jersey Devils avoided elimination and sent yet another Eastern Conference first-round series to a seventh game with a 3-2 victory over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night in Newark. Steve Bernier and Ilya Kovalchuk also scored and Martin Brodeur made 14 saves for New Jersey, which squandered a two-goal lead and had fans dreading another first-round playoff exit until Zajac scored from the right hand circle. The shot beat Scott Clemmensen to the lower corner and set off a mob scene on the ice. Clemmensen was outstanding, stopping 39 shots in an emergency start for the injured Jose Theodore.

Mike Knuble and Nicklas Backstrom fueled a high-powered offense with three points apiece, and the Washington Capitals pulled away to their ninth consecutive victory, 4-1, over the visiting Florida Panthers last night. Knuble had two goals and an assist, and Backstrom had a goal and two assists for the Capitals. The winning streak is the second-longest in franchise history, just one short of the 10 straight won by the 1983-84 team. Washington has won 12 times in January to tie the team record for a month, set in December 1984.

Call it the Tortorella Tirade. The Rangers came out flat in the opening minute against the New Jersey Devils, and coach John Tortorella had seen more than enough. He burned his lone timeout 1:24 in and chewed out his club. The message got through, and visiting New York gutted out a 3-2 victory last night. "We didn't come out ready," captain Chris Drury said. "It was pretty obvious at the start of the game and he let us know. From that point on I thought we responded very well.

If the Flyers miss the playoffs by a point, they will look back with disdain at what transpired with 40.1 seconds left Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Scott Hartnell appeared to score at that point, but the goal was disallowed because referees ruled that the Flyers left winger pushed New Jersey goalie Martin Brodeur into the net. The Devils survived, 2-1, before a howling sellout crowd that booed lustily as referees Tom Kowal and Mark Lemelin skated off the ice after the game.

At 42, ageless right winger Jaromir Jagr is showing no signs of slowing down. Fact is, he has been the New Jersey Devils' top forward this season. Jagr will face his former Flyers teammates Tuesday in a key Metropolitan Division matchup at the Wells Fargo Center. "He protects the puck really well and you just have to keep him on the outside," Flyers defenseman Mark Streit said after Monday's practice in Voorhees. Older players like Jagr, Streit said, "take care of their bodies and live a good lifestyle, and it makes a difference.

MATS ZUCCARELLO had little to celebrate six games into his second stint with the New York Rangers. The 5-7 spark plug had no goals and two assists in his return. Demanding coach John Tortorella noticed and wasn't pleased with the lack of production. On Wednesday, before the Rangers took the ice for the back end of a home-and-home series with Toronto, Tortorella called out Zuccarello, saying he needed to score - in games and in shootouts. The message got through in a hurry.

NEWARK, N.J. - They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Scott Hartnell said the Flyers were facing as big of a "must-win" as possible for the third game of a season on Tuesday night, against a Devils team that booted them from the playoffs last May with little fanfare. That hunger for "payback" lasted all of about 67 seconds, when Travis Zajac tapped yet another first-period goal by Ilya Bryzgalov, igniting that oh-so-familiar derogatory anti-Flyers chant from the Jersey faithful at Prudential Center.

NEWARK - Up went the New Jersey Devils' Eastern Conference championship banner the other day. Down went the Flyers on Tuesday night, falling to the Devils, 3-0, and starting their season 0-3 for just the third time since the franchise started in 1967-68. Devils goalie Martin Brodeur made 24 saves and shut out the Flyers for the 10th time. "I wouldn't say it's a crisis," winger Wayne Simmonds said. "But I think it's fair to say the next game is a must win. " It was the home opener for the Devils, who used a suffocating defense as they eliminated the Flyers, four games to one, in last year's Eastern Conference semifinals.

NEW YORK - When asked what his inefficient forwards needed to do to beat Martin Brodeur in the Eastern Conference final, irascible Rangers coach John Tortorella simply said: "Pray. " Turns out, prayer was a good way to exorcise the devils in the Rangers' tightly gripped sticks. Just not the actual Devils from New Jersey. After struggling to score through the first four games against New Jersey, the Rangers were faced with the task of a daunting, three-goal deficit in the first 10 minutes of Wednesday night's Game 5. New York steadily chipped away, dominating play, to knot the score just 17 seconds into the third period.
