NEWARK, N.J., Jan. 19 (UPI) -- Andrew Ference touched off a four-goal onslaught in the third period Thursday that brought the Boston Bruins a 4-1 victory over New Jersey.

Tim Thomas gave up a first-period goal to Petr Sykora and then blanked the Devils the rest of the way. Boston improved the NHL's best road record to 14-6.

Martin Brodeur kept the Bruins off the board through two periods, but Ference tied it 3:01 into the third with a slap shot.

Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell tallied 35 seconds apart midway through the final period to put the Bruins in control and Chris Kelly scored into an empty net with 47 seconds remaining.

New Jersey had a three-game winning streak snapped. Thomas finished with 30 saves.
