EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The line of Trent Hunter, Mike York and Miroslav Satan combined for two first-period goals and the New York Islanders beat the New Jersey Devils 5-2 Thursday night.

Jason Blake, Alexei Zhitnik and Viktor Kozlov also scored, Alexei Yashin added three assists and Rick DiPietro had 14 saves for the Islanders, who won their third straight game and ended the Devils' two-game winning streak.

Rookie Travis Zajac scored for the Devils and set up another by Zach Parise. Martin Brodeur, who had posted shutouts in his last two starts, had 22 saves.

The Islanders went 6-2 against New Jersey last season and dominated the first of eight meetings this year, limiting the Devils to 10 shots in the first two periods.

Hunter, York and Satan set the tone after struggling recently for New York.

Hunter had a goal and an assist in the first 11 games. While York had two goals and three assists, the centre had not had an assist in five games. After scoring in the opening minutes of the season opener, Satan had not put the puck in the net again.
