Bruins 6, Devils 1: B's Add Three Goals In Third, Stick Pitchfork In Devils

Patrice Bergeron had two goals, and the Bruins went on to crush the New Jersey Devils 6-1 in Wednesday's night matchup in New Jersey.

Bergeron scored the only goal in the second period and proceeded to start the scoring frenzy in the third frame. Meanwhile David Krejci and Dennis Siedenberg each extended their point streak to another game and Milan Lucic had three assists.

But the Bruins didn't start the blood frenzy, and the Devils picked up the first goal of the night--their only goal. It came 4:24 in the first period after Johnny Boychuk was called for delay of game. Tim Thomas hadn't seen many shots at that point, and a 2-on-1 left him vulnerable.

And that's all the success New Jersey had.

Marty Broduer accumulated 20 saves on 26 shots, and fell to a 0-4-1 record against the Bruins in his last five starts. Meanwhile, Tim Thomas improved to 17-6-0, stopping 29-of-30 shots he faced.

Gregory Campbell, Nathan Horton, Krejci and Shawn Thornton also netted goals, including a power play goal from Horton in the first period.

The Bruins faceoff against the Calgary Flames tomorrow back in Boston. The puck drops at 7 p.m.
