Bruins Rout Devils, Bergeron a Pair of Goals

Bergeron scores 2 goals in Bruins' rout of Devils

      NEWARK, N.J. (AP) – Patrice Bergeron scored two goals, and Tim
Thomas made 30 saves in the Boston Bruins' 6-1 rout of the New
Jersey Devils on Wednesday night.

      The defending Stanley Cup champions got back on track after
their seven-game winning streak was snapped Saturday against
Dallas. Boston (25-10-1) moved within one point of the Eastern
Conference-leading New York Rangers.

      New Jersey (21-16-2) had dropped two straight after winning two
in a row and seven of nine.

      Gregory Campbell got Boston even at 1 in the first period, and
Nathan Horton scored his fifth power-play goal of the season to
give the Bruins the lead. David Krejci and Shawn Thornton added
goals in the third.

      David Clarkson put the Devils on top early with his team-leading
14th goal, but it wasn't enough to keep New Jersey from its
most-lopsided loss since a 6-1 defeat at Colorado on Nov. 30.
