Devils Lose on 3rd Period Rally by Bruins
Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell scored in a 35-second span in a four-goal third period that carried the Boston Bruins to a 4-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night.
Defenseman Andrew Ference tied it at 3:01 of the period and Horton and Campbell put the Bruins ahead for good as they beat New Jersey for the third time in three games this season. Chris Kelly added an empty-net goal in the final minute.
Tim Thomas made 30 saves as Boston snapped the Devils’ three-game winning streak with the three-goal outburst in the 4:44 span.
Petr Sykora scored for the Devils, who limited the defending Stanley Cup champions to 12 shots against Martin Brodeur in the opening 40 minutes at the Prudential Center.
