NEWARK, N.J. — Rookie defensemen Michael Del Zotto and Matt Gilroy each scored, and the New York Rangers broke out of early power-play woes in a 3-2 victory against the New Jersey Devils on Monday night.

After a season-opening loss at Pittsburgh, the Rangers have won two straight. Del Zotto and Ales Kotalik scored power-play goals in the first period, and Gilroy tallied at even strength in the second for New York, which erased two one-goal deficits. Henrik Lundqvist made 25 saves.

The 19-year-old Del Zotto has scored in consecutive games.

Rob Niedermayer scored his first goal with the Devils, and Travis Zajac added a power-play score in the first, but the Devils dropped to 0-2.
