(Sports Network) - The New Jersey Devils aim for their fourth consecutive victory this evening, when they host the St. Louis Blues at Continental Airlines Arena.

The Devils, who lead the Atlantic Division with 54 points, picked up the last two wins in their three-game streak on the road. They beat Ottawa, 3-2, on Saturday and then blanked Montreal, 3-0, the following day. Brian Gionta's pair of goals and Martin Brodeur's 28 saves lifted New Jersey to Sunday's whitewashing of the Canadiens at the Bell Centre.

Brodeur's shutout was his seventh of the season, and 87th in his storied career. The 34-year-old leads the NHL with seven shutouts this season.

Brian Rafalski and Scott Gomez added two assists each, while Michael Rupp also scored for the Devils, winners in six of their last seven games.

The Devils are an impressive 14-3-3 as the home club this year and are playing the first of two straight at the Meadowlands tonight. They will welcome Atlanta on Friday.

St. Louis is coming off a victory, having defeated the Blue Jackets in Columbus on Tuesday. Lee Stempniak was credited with the game-winning goal in the shootout to lift the Blues over Columbus, 4-3, at Nationwide Arena.
