Bruins 4, Devils 1: Boston Avoids Losing Streak, Takes Care Of New Jersey

Newark, NJ (Sports Network) - Gregory Campbell had a goal and an assist, as the Bruins finished strong to down the Devils, 4-1, on Thursday.

Andrew Ference, Nathan Horton and Chris Kelly also scored during a four-goal third period for the Bruins, who were coming off Tuesday's loss at Tampa Bay. Tim Thomas made 30 saves in the win.

The Devils, meanwhile, saw their three-game win streak come to an end. Petr Sykora scored their lone goal during the first period and Martin Brodeur made 21 saves.

The Devils grabbed a 1-0 lead with 1:31 remaining in the first, as Dainius Zubrus recovered the puck behind the net and fed Sykora in front for the one- time tally.

Boston, meanwhile, appeared stymied, getting just six shots on net in both the first and second periods. Its woes came to a hasty halt in the third when Ference smoked a slap shot past Brodeur from the left point at 3:01.

Horton and Campbell continued the surge four minutes later, scoring 35 seconds apart on a tip-in and a rebound, respectively. Horton's 17th of the season came on the power play and Campbell's came after a spirited flurry in front of the net.

Kelly added an empty netter with 47 seconds left to seal the final result.

Game Notes

The Bruins got forward Brad Marchand back from a five-game suspension. He skated a little over 16 minutes...Boston has won all three meetings between the teams this season.
