(Newser) – The Devils took advantage of the Penguins' poor goalie play last night, scoring 5 times against Marc-Andre Fleury on the way to a 5-4 win.  But that wasn't the story of the game.

With the score tied at 3-3 in the 2nd, the Penguins apparently scored the go-ahead goal— but seconds later it was called back because the Penguins had too many men on the ice, though both teams appeared to be in violation.  Soon after, the Devils scored on a questionable call and the Pittsburgh crowd went nuts, showering the ice with objects and trash. With 9:22 left, Arron Asham scored to give the Devils the lead for good.
