Bryan Rust scored twice on Thursday night against the New Jersey Devils but it was hardly enough as the Pittsburgh Penguins saw their five game winning streak come to and end in a 5-2 loss. Both Sidney Crosby and Erik Karlsson extended their respective point streaks but it was not enough to overcome three unanswered third period goals from the Devils that proved to be the difference on the night.
