Embattled Mike Peluso had an assist and the game-winning goal in leading the New Jersey Devils to a 4-2 victory over Florida on Sunday night, their first road victory of the season.

New Jersey has never lost to the Panthers, posting a 3-0-2 mark against them last year. The victory snapped a four-game road losing streak (0-4-1 overall) for the Devils.With the score tied 2-2, Bobby Holik crossed a pass to a streaking Peluso, who tucked it past John Vanbiesbrouck's stick side at 12:50 of the third period. It was Peluso's first goal of the season.

Stephane Richer added an empty-net goal with 21.6 seconds left, his fifth of the season. The Panthers, who have never scored in the third period against New Jersey, had just three shots in the final 20 minutes.

Vanbiesbrouck made 24 saves, some spectacular, but he's 0-4-1 in his last five decisions against New Jersey.

With the score tied 1-1 after one period, Peluso screened Vanbiesbrouck as Holik squibbed it into the net just as the cage became dislodged from its moorings, for his second goal.

Five minutes later Jesse Belanger's point-blank blast was gloved aside by Martin Brodeur, who made 19 saves and raised his unbeaten streak to five games (4-0-1).

Peluso had time to cool off, though, getting sent to the penalty box after fights with Paul Laus and Scott Mellanby.

Following the fight between Mellanby and Peluso, Tom Fitzgerald crossed a pass to Dave Lowry, who wristed it past Brodeur's stick side for his fourth goal of the season, producing a 2-2 tie heading into the final period.

Florida opened the scoring when Mike Hough deflected Laus' half-speed shot off Brodeur's pads and into the net for his second goal of the season, and second in two nights.

Edmonton 2, Anaheim 0

At Edmonton, Kelly Buchberger and Scott Thornton each scored a goal as the Edmonton Oilers beat Anaheim 2-0 Sunday despite a great performance by Mighty Ducks goaltender Guy Hebert.

Hebert, who came into the game with a dismal 4.79 goals-against average, was the game's true star. The Mighty Ducks relied on him to stop a career-best 43 shots, and barely stayed within a goal of the Oilers with pesky checking.

Buchberger scored at 12:35 of the first period. Thornton was credited with an empty-net goal at 19:12 of the third to seal the victory.

Edmonton goalie Bill Ranford was also sharp, stopping 20 shots in the third period and 29 overall.
