NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Travis Zajac capped a three-goal first period with a goal and an assist in a 26-second span and the New Jersey Devils embarrassed the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks 4-2 on Friday night.

The Blackhawks’ poor performance came a day after an upstate New York prosecutor decided not to bring rape charges against Chicago star forward Patrick Kane because of a lack of credible evidence following a three-month investigation.

Kane extended his goal-scoring streak to three games and his points streak to nine (6 goals, 7 assists).

The Devils dominated in winning for the seventh time in nine games, sending the Blackhawks to their second straight loss and ending a four-game losing streak against Chicago.

Lee Stempniak and Kyle Palmieri had a goal and an assist, Severson added two assists and Mike Cammalleri tallied a goal as New Jersey took a 4-0 lead in the opening 27:28.
