BOSTON – Milan Lucic netted his 30th of the season and Zdeno Chara pounded home the power play game-winner for his 400th NHL point as the Boston Bruins defeated the New Jersey Devils 4-1 tonight in TD Garden.
“It was a great pass by [Patrice Bergeron]. I knew he saw me and he’s a gifted player so he made a great pass like that. And also you have to give credit to my boy [Nathan Horton] there, creating a screen in front of the net,” Lucic said of his goal.
The win came on the heels of two tough practices following a 1-3 road swing that concluded Saturday night with a 5-2 loss in Toronto for the third place Bruins.
“I think after the Toronto game, it was a bit of a wake up call. But also, we knew the effort was going to be there today. We addressed the things we needed to address in practice. I think we did a good job in responding tonight,” B’s winger Shawn Thornton said.
