(Sports Network) - The New Jersey Devils try to rebound from a miserable road trip tonight when they welcome the Pittsburgh Penguins to Continental Airlines Arena.

The Devils went 1-3-1 on their recent trek, including Monday's 3-2 shootout loss in Los Angeles. Rookie Anze Kopitar scored a shootout marker and added a primary assist in regulation to lift the Kings,

Brian Gionta and Travis Zajac had goals for New Jersey, which has dropped four straight games since beginning the swing with a win in Toronto. Patrik Elias donated two assists in defeat, and Martin Brodeur finished with 26 saves.

The Devils hope a return home does the trick, as they are 8-1-1 at the Meadowlands this season. They will visit Philadelphia on Saturday.

Pittsburgh, meanwhile, ended a three-game losing slide with Tuesday's 3-2 win over the visiting Islanders. Sidney Crosby returned to the lineup for the Penguins and had two assists to lead the effort.
