EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- The New Jersey Devils are aiming for another win against the Washington Capitals when they meet in a Saturday matinee.

The Devils posted a 4-3 triumph against the Capitals in the front end of a home-and-home series Friday at the MCI Center.

Martin Brodeur returned from a six-game absence due to a knee injury and stopped 21 of the 24 shots he faced. Grant Marshall had a rare scoring burst by collecting a goal and two assists.

Brian Gionta added his team-leading 10th goal and Scott Gomez chimed in with his third tally of the season for New Jersey, which ended an 0-2-2 slide with the win.

Rookie Alexander Ovechkin scored his 13th goal - tops among first-year players - in the third period for the Capitals, which has lost its last two contests.

Washington again may be without its top goaltender, Olaf Kolzig, after he hurt his hamstring in Tuesday's loss against Toronto.
