TEAMS: Boston Bruins
8 a.m. ET: The Bruins had their seven-game win streak snapped with a disappointing effort in Dallas on Saturday, but will get a chance to begin a new streak Wednesday in New Jersey. Boston has already beaten the Devils once this year, with Benoit Pouliot scoring the game-winner with 3:01 left in regulation for a 4-3 victory at the Garden on Nov. 15. The Bruins sit second in the East at 24-10-1, but their 49 points are just five more than eighth-place New Jersey (21-15-2, 44 points).

Tim Thomas Rebounds From Shaky Outing, Shows He's Not Ready to Relinquish Top Spot to Tuukka Rask Just Yet

Any thinking that Tim Thomas might be ready to relinquish his hold on the Bruins' No. 1 netminding job would be sadly mistaken.

Bruins roll over Devils

They are Devils, not vampires, but when they looked themselves in the mirror last night, there wasn’t much to see anyway.
