SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) Damon Severson scored his first NHL goal to cap a four-goal opening period by New Jersey and the Devils chased Roberto Luongo early to beat the Florida Panthers 5-1 on Saturday night.
The Devils got points from 11 different players and started their season with two consecutive road wins for the first time after topping the Philadelphia Flyers 6-4 on Thursday night.
Derek MacKenzie scored for Florida, which lost its home opener for the first time in five seasons.
Luongo gave up five goals on 14 shots before leaving the game 2:59 into the second. Al Montoya, the NHL's first Cuban-American - which gives him enormous popularity in South Florida - finished with 10 saves in relief for Florida.
