BOSTON (AP) -- Seth Griffith scored a highlight-reel goal to break a second-period tie, and Reilly Smith added another just 80 seconds later on Monday night to lead the Boston Bruins to a 4-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils.

It was the fifth straight victory for the Bruins.

Griffith split two Devils as he crossed the blue line and, when New Jersey defenseman Marek Zidlicky spun him around, he slapped the puck backward between his own legs and the legs of goalie Cory Schneider.

The play got a big cheer from the sold-out TD Garden crowd -- and an even bigger one when it was replayed on the scoreboard and fans could see in slow motion what had happened.
