NHL: New Jersey 4, Boston 3

Oct. 26, 2013 at 10:36 PM

BOSTON, Oct. 26 (UPI) -- Marek Zidlicky and Andy Greene each scored a power-play goal in the game's final minutes Saturday, sparking the New Jersey Devils to a 4-3 victory over Boston.

The Devils were trailing 3-2 late in the third period when Boston's Torey Krug was handed a 4-minute double-minor penalty for high-sticking.

The Bruins' woes were compounded with 2:49 remaining when Patrice Bergeron was cited for delay of game after sending a puck over the glass, giving New Jersey a two-man advantage.

Zidlicky struck for the equalizer with 1:08 remaining, and with the Devils still on a power play, Damien Brunner partially fanned on a shot but the puck dribbled to an unchecked Greene, who fired it home for the game-winner.

Brunner also scored in the second and Adam Henrique had a goal for New Jersey, which notched just its second win of the season.

Martin Brodeur made 25 saves.

Jarome Iginla supplied a goal and two assists while Krug and Milan Lucic also scored as the Bruins had a four-game winning streak snapped.

Tuukka Rask turned aside 28-of-32 shots for Boston.
