NHL Game Summary – Boston at New Jersey

Newark, NJ (Sports Network) - Tim Thomas made 25 saves for his third shutout of the season, as Boston continued to roll with a 2-0 win over New Jersey at the Prudential Center.

Milan Lucic and David Krejci lit the lamp for the Bruins, who have won six games in a row and 10 of the last 11 and sport the best record in the Eastern Conference at 25-5-4.

Phil Kessel, who was sporting an NHL-best 18-game point streak coming into the game, was held pointless in the victory.

Scott Clemmensen stopped 22-of-23 shots in defeat for the Devils, who had their three-game win streak snapped.

Lucic alertly gathered in the rebound of a Zdeno Chara shot and slid it through Clemmensen's pads 49 seconds into the third period for a 1-0 Boston lead.

Krejci capped the victory on an empty-net goal with 48 seconds remaining.

In a scoreless first period, Thomas and Clemmensen were equal with nine saves apiece.

Thomas kept the game scoreless with 4:09 remaining in the second period on his best save of the contest.

Jamie Langenbrunner broke down the right wing on a 2-on-1, and his shot from the circle was kicked out but right to a streaking Patrik Elias on the left side. His own rebound poke toward an open net was thwarted, as Thomas dove out and smothered the shot with his stick.
