Devils look to continue winning ways vs. Bruins

Boston (39-9-7) at New Jersey (35-17-3) 7:00 p.m. EST

NEWARK, New Jersey (Ticker) -- It's not often the Boston Bruins

give up a lead in the third period.

Jumping in front of the streaking New Jersey Devils will be

imperative for the Bruins, particularly on Friday the 13th.

Boston was 26-0-2 when leading after two periods entering

Tuesday's contest against the Western Conference-leading San

Jose Sharks. After carrying a one-goal advantage into the final

session, the Bruins surrendered four tallies in the third en

route to a 5-2 loss.

It was the first time in 10 games (6-1-3) Boston failed to earn

at least one point as it continues to sit atop the Eastern

Conference.

While the Bruins continue to lead the conference, the Devils

have done their best to make up ground, closing January with a

season-high eight straight wins before dropping a 5-2 decision

to the Washington Capitals on February 3.

Given its satanic mascot, it seems only fitting that New Jersey

will try to earn its third consecutive win on a day associated

with horror movies and hockey-masked killers.

After shutting out the New York Rangers on Monday, the Devils

earned their third win in four games with a 4-2 victory over the

lowly New York Islanders on Wednesday.
