Devils blanked by Thomas, Bruins
New Jersey Devils 0, Boston Bruins 3
Mattias Tedenby fired a game-high five shots on goal.
BOSTON (AP) -Tim Thomas made 28 saves for his fourth shutout of the season, and Mark Recchi had two assists in the Boston Bruins' 3-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night.

Boston snapped a two-game losing streak - both at home - in which the Bruins scored only one total goal.
Michael Ryder, Nathan Horton and Blake Wheeler scored for the Bruins, who were 0-2-1 with four goals in their previous three home games.

Thomas made a couple of key early saves and improved to 9-1 this season with his 21st NHL shutout.

The Devils (5-11-2) took their third loss in four games and fifth in seven contests under first-year coach John MacLean. New Jersey has been shut out in three of its last six games and has scored one goal or fewer nine times.
The Devils beat Edmonton in overtime Friday night for their first home victory.

Boston had a 5-on-3 power play in the first period when it grabbed the lead. Ryder was to the right of goalie Martin Brodeur and fired a sharp-angle shot that found its way into the net at 15:26 for his fifth goal.

Horton scored his eighth goal 43 seconds into the second period, beating Brodeur on a long snap shot from the right side.

The Bruins pushed their lead to 3-0 when Wheeler carried the puck down the left side and beat Brodeur with a wrist shot 43 seconds into the third.

NOTES: Devils captain Jamie Langenbrunner missed his second straight game because of neck soreness resulting from a headfirst spill into the boards last week against Buffalo. Defenseman Matt Taormina joined the Devils' long list of injuries when he hurt his left foot in practice on Sunday. Defenseman Matt Corrente returned after missing seven games because of a broken left hand. … The Devils' three-game road trip continues Thursday at Toronto, then concludes Saturday at St. Louis.
