Bruins Beat Devils By Capitalizing On Power Play

Chara's goal helps Bruins to 4-1 win over Devils

      BOSTON (AP) – 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.
