All done in Boston. David Krejci with hat trick.

20:00 2d period: 3-3
Bruins with a point. Fortunate given how poorly they played in second period.

14:26 3d period: 3-3
Chris Kelly replaces Brian Rolston on No. 2 line. Rolston having hard time fitting in.

9:15 3d period: 3-3
Chris Kelly rings a shorthanded shot off the post. NJ gives up shorties like candy.

8:57 3d period: 3-3
Andrew Ference to the room. Had left earlier and returned to the bench. Might be done for the night.

5:30 3d period: 3-3
All tied up. David Krejci whacks puck past Martin Brodeur from sharp angle. Zdeno Chara down low causing havoc.

20:00 2d period: Devils 3-2
Rotten second for Bruins. Zero pressure on goal, hardly any puck possession. Joe Corvo’s night may be over. Benched after Patrik Elias’s second goal. Bruins rotating five defensemen.

17:46 2d period: Devils 3-2
David Clarkson jams puck through Tim Thomas. Has to stop that shot.

14:03 2d period: 2-2
Patrik Elias scores on doorstep. Rebound of Anton Volchenkov shot off Tim Thomas to Elias’s blade. NJ owning Bruins in second.

13:28 2d period: Bruins 2-1
David Clarkson pegged by Marek Zidlicky slapper off the leg. In pain.

8:37 2d period: Bruins 2-1
Alex Ponikarovsky with punishing hit on Andrew Ference. Devils continue to push.

6:27 2d period: Bruins 2-1
Two-on-one rush for Devils. Ilya Kovalchuk with sweet saucer pass over Dennis Seidenberg’s to Zach Parise, who makes no mistake. Zero energy for Bruins so far in second.

4:30 2d period: Bruins 2-0
NJ really pushing. Bruins need more time with puck.

20:00 1st period: Bruins 2-0
One of best first periods in recent memory for Bruins. David Krejci’s line flying. Good energy all around.

16:05 1st period: Bruins 2-0
Greg Zanon lays solid lick on David Clarkson. Zanon fitting in already. Can’t say that about Brian Rolston. Struggling.

14:51 1st period: Bruins 2-0
Shawn Thornton back on the bench. Had gone to room for repairs following scrap.

11:28 1st period: Bruins 2-0
Sprawling stop by Martin Brodeur on David Krejci’s shorthanded breakaway. Brodeur pulling out all stops so far.

8:10 1st period: Bruins 2-0
Tyler Seguin, robbed earlier in first, beats Martin Brodeur. Terrific work by Milan Lucic to fight off Mark Fayne’s check, spot Seguin, and get the puck to the sniper.

5:43 1st period: Bruins 1-0
Martin Brodeur reaches back to keep Gregory Campbell’s shot off the line.

4:23 1st period: Bruins 1-0
Highlight save by Martin Brodeur. Right-pad kickout on Tyler Seguin at point-blank range. As good as you’ll see.

2:11 1st period: Bruins 1-0
Shawn Thornton vs. Eric Boulton. Heavyweight scrap between two standup tough guys. Thornton to the room.

1:13 1st period: Bruins 1-0
Immediate chemistry between Tyler Seguin and David Krejci. Seguin carries the puck into offensive zone with speed. Finds Krejci cutting to middle. Krejci slips puck past Martin Brodeur.

0:00 1st period:0-0
Brian Rolston on Patrice Bergeron’s right wing. Tyler Seguin away from Bergeron for first time (other than suspension) since Oct. 28.
