Parise, Devils seek third straight win

New Jersey (21-11-3) at Dallas (15-15-5), 8:30 p.m. EST

DALLAS (Ticker) — Zach Parise has established himself as a
prolific scorer and the New Jersey Devils have reaped the
benefits.

Seeking their third straight win, the Devils and their budding
leader visit the Dallas Stars on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old Parise scored two goals on Tuesday as New Jersey
skated to a 4-2 victory over the struggling St. Louis Blues.

Parise now has 41 points in his last 31 games, and has scored in
17 of those. Coming off a breakout 32-goal and 65-point
campaign in 2007-08, he has 21 goals and 23 assists, placing him
fifth in the NHL in points.

Brian Rolston and Jay Pandolfo also tallied and Scott Clemmensen
made 28 saves to help the Devils improve to 14-4-1 in their past
19 games.

Dallas is coming off a 3-1 loss to the Western
Conference-leading San Jose Sharks on Monday, but has not lost
consecutive games since dropping three straight from November
20-24.

Prior to the setback against San Jose, the Stars were 4-0-1 in
their last five games.
