The Bruins beat the Devils 2-1 Tuesday night. Boston remains unbeaten at home, in regulation, and have taken at least one point in every game this season.
It was a tough, heavy-hitting, playoff-style game at TD Garden. Playing in the second game of a back-to-back, the Bruins looked sluggish for most of the game.
The Bruins’ perfect penalty killing came to an end Tuesday night at the hands of David Clarkson. Clarkson scored the first goal of the game midway through the second period. He used a nice deflection in the high slot to beat Tuukka Rask up high.
The Bruins power play responded with nothing Tuesday, after a two-goal showing the night before.
Nathan Horton continues to be the hot goal-scorer with the timely game-tying goal at 15:55 of the third period. A great play made by David Krejci and Milan Lucic, making the big triangle and finding the open player.
Seguin made up for it in the shootout, scoring two times. The first one did not count due to a fan throwing debris onto the ice. Brad Marchand got the winner in the sixth round, beating Johan Hedberg between the legs.
Rask’s return to the net was a good one, as he stopped 25 out of 26 shots.
