Newark, NJ (Sports Network) - Craig Anderson turned aside all 33 shots he faced, and the Ottawa Senators extended one of the longest losing streaks in New Jersey Devils history with a 2-0 win at the Prudential Center.

Rookie Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Milan Michalek both had second-period goals to back Anderson's third shutout of the season, with Pageau's the first of his NHL career and Michalek's his first since Jan. 29.

Michalek had not played since Mar. 8 due to a right knee injury that required surgery and kept him out of Ottawa's last 15 contests.

The victory moved the Senators into sole possession of sixth place in the Eastern Conference, one point behind idle Toronto, and dealt the free-falling Devils a ninth straight loss that now stands one short of a franchise record for consecutive defeats.

While Anderson was razor-sharp between the pipes, counterpart Martin Brodeur stopped just 9-of-11 chances as New Jersey fell to 0-5-4 since Mar. 25.
