NEW YORK (AP) - Patrik Elias and Sergei Brylin each scored two goals and Martin Brodeur made 35 saves to lead the New Jersey Devils to a 6-1 victory over the Rangers on Sunday, New York's second embarrassing loss in two days.

On Saturday night in Toronto, the Maple Leafs routed the Rangers 9-2.

Jamie Langenbrunner and Zach Parise also scored for New Jersey.

Petr Prucha had New York's lone goal.

New Jersey's last two goal were reviewed. At 18:08 of the third period, goalie Kevin Weekes appeared to stop Parise's shot, but a video review revealed that the puck crossed the goal-line. It was Parise's 11th of the season.

Elias beat Weekes at 14:59 of the third period, but the puck bounced out of the net and play continued for several minutes before a stoppage allowed a review. Elias was credited with his 12th goal and the clock was reset to the point the goal occurred.

Brylin's second of the game, at 1:49 of the third period, put New Jersey ahead 4-1. Parise carried the puck into the Rangers' end on a 2-on-1 break and passed to Brylin, who backhanded the puck past Weekes for his sixth goal.

The Devils snapped a three-game losing streak, while the Rangers have lost the two lopsided games after winning five straight.
