Martin Brodeur stopped 16 shots, and Zach Parise, Patrik Elias and Anssi Salmela each scored in the New Jersey Devils' 3-0 victory over the New York Islanders on Wednesday night in a preseason game. Parise's goal was short-handed and came at 14:24 of the first period, after Islanders goalie Joey MacDonald fell while chasing the puck behind his net. The puck came out to Parise, who quickly banged it in.

Elias scored at 5:21 of the second period on a slap shot from the top of the left circle. Salmela scored from the slot with 5:57 left.

The Devils improved to 3-2-0 in the preseason.

MacDonald made 19 saves for the Islanders (2-2-0) in their only preseason game at home.
