Chara's Goal Helps Bruins To 4-1 Win Over Devils
Zdeno Chara broke a tie midway through the second period and Milan Lucic scored his 30th goal of the season late in the third as the Boston Bruins beat the New Jersey Devils 4-1 on Tuesday night.
The Devils, who committed one penalty in their previous two games, were called for five in the first two periods, and the Bruins' struggling power-play unit finally came through. Boston had scored just twice on its previous 34 power-play opportunities entering the game.
New Jersey took a 1-0 lead on Ilya Kovalchuk's 27th goal at 11:05 of the first period. Shawn Thornton tied it less than six minutes later.
Boston won for just the second time in eight games after winning seven straight. New Jersey is 1-3 after going 23-3-2 in its previous 28 games.
