Boston Bruins edge Devils 4-2, earn 10th straight win

The Boston Bruins edged the New Jersey Devils Tuesday night, running their win streak to 10 games. Boston had 11 players notch at least one point in their 4-2 victory at Prudential Center.

It’s Boston’s longest winning streak since November of 2011.

Boston now has 99 points and they hold a five point lead on the Pittsburgh Penguins for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. Amidst their winning streak, the Bruins have outscored their opponents 44-15, while allowing two or fewer goals in all but one of the games.

Jarome Iginla, Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and Chris Kelly all scored for the Bruins.

Iginla’s goal was his 26th of the season. The goal also marked his 556th of his career. He is now tied with Bruins legend  Johnny Bucyk for 25th place on the all-time scoring list.

The Bruins recent hot streak has a direct correlation with Iginla’s dominance of late. Iginla has scored nine goals during the winning streak and has a total of 12 points in his last 10 games.

Marchand’s goal was his 22nd of the season and it was a shorthanded one. He now leads the NHL with five shortys on the year.

Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson assisted on Kelly’s goal, as the third line trio continues to be a consistent and viable scoring option for Claude Julien. Julien’s been rolling four lines with confidence.

Reilly Smith, who seems to be growing his confidence once again, assisted on Bergeron’s 20th tally of the season.

Four different members of the black-and-gold have now scored at least 20 goals this season.

Chad Johnson was in net for the Bruins and he was once again outstanding. Johnson made 22 saves and earned his 15th win of the season in doing so. He is 9-0-1 in his last 10 starts.

Travis Zajac and Patrik Elias scored for New Jersey.

Milan Lucic and Ryane Clowe dropped the gloves in the tilt as well.

Corey Potter made his Bruins debut, skating in place of Matt Bartkowski. Andrej Meszaros filled in for Johnny Boychuk who is listed as day-to-day.

The Bruins will continue their three game road trip on Friday in Colorado.
