8 a.m. ET: The Bruins used a lot of energy and hard work to get the win Monday in Carolina, but they better have something left over for Tuesday night as well. Things won’t get any easier for the B’s, as they return home to host the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night. The Devils, who had Monday off, will be rested and waiting for the Bruins in a matchup of two first-place teams. The Devils, the reigning Eastern Conference champions, have picked up right where they left off last year. Like the Bruins, their only loss came in overtime, being edged by Andrei Markov and the Canadiens on Sunday night in Montreal. The Devils are getting contributions from all over, with Patrik Elias and David Clarkson leading the way with six points. Ilya Kovalchuk returned to the NHL after some debate about whether he’d stay in Russia. It’s a good thing for the Devils they got him back, too, as he’s got two goals and three assists already this year. In net, it’s the same old story for the Devils. Martin Brodeur may be 40, but his stat line doesn’t do much to prove that. Brodeur has started all four games for the Defvils, allowing just seven goals for a 1.69 goals against average to go along with a .932 save percentage. In short, it won’t be easy for a Bruins team that will be playing the second game of its first back-to-back of the season after travelling from North Carolina. Boston will have to dig deep if they want to keep their streak of recording at least a point in each of their games this season alive. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 p.m. from TD Garden.
