NEWARK, N.J. — David Clarkson had a goal and an assist as the New Jersey Devils scored three times in the first period against Tim Thomas and held on for a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Monday night. Clarkson took the shot that Rob Niedermayer deflected in and then scored on a breakaway to make it 2-0. Zach Parise finished the barrage that assured the Devils (41-24-3) their 18th straight .500-plus season. Blake Wheeler scored for the third consecutive game to cut Boston's deficit to 3-1 at 43 seconds of the middle period, but the eighth-place Bruins failed to stretch their lead at the bottom of the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Pluses + The defending Eastern Conference champion New Jersey Devils have been quietly piling up points with a 9-3-3 record. Despite losing Zach Parise to free agency — and losing right wing Dainius Zubrus last week to wrist surgery — they have stayed near the top of the Atlantic Division and the conference. One big reason: David Clarkson's 10 goals, which rank among the league leaders. + Goaltender Jake Allen, called on to start twice for the St. Louis Blues last week because of Brian Elliott's struggles and Jaroslav Halak's groin strain, was more than up to the task.

David Clarkson scored the lone shootout goal in the fourth round of the tiebreaker and the New Jersey Devils extended their season-opening road winning streak to seven games with a 2-1 victory against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday. The run at the start of the season equals the second longest in NHL history, matching Toronto (1940-41), Philadelphia (1985-86) and Detroit (2005-06). Buffalo holds the league record of 10 in a row, set at the beginning of the 2006-07 season. Travis Zajac scored in regulation for the Devils.

And so, the Stanley Cup was spirited back into the night. Or something like that. The Cup and its handlers left the once-festive building, as did the New Jersey Devils, leaving Staples Center with a 3-1 victory over the Kings in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night. With that, the Devils took the buzz out of the arena, stopping the celebration-on-deck party, 45 years in the making. Kings' fans patiently have waited that long for the franchise's first Stanley Cup, and now it will be at least a delay of three more days for the champagne and nerves to stay on ice. (You can assume that some of the fans have broken it down to hours, minutes and seconds.)

NEWARK, N.J. - The Kings continue to love life on the road. Colin Fraser's goal gave the Kings a 1-0 lead over the New Jersey Devils after one period in the Stanley Cup Final opener at Prudential Center Wednesday. The Kings are 8-0 on the road during the playoffs, but the Devils matched their first-period effort. The scrappy first nine minutes was a exercise in give-and-take, with both teams managing only one shot on goal. That changed when the Kings' Jordan Nolan knocked New Jersey's Andy Greene off the puck behind the Devils' net. Nolan centered to Fraser, whose one-timer beat goaltender Martin Brodeur for a 1-0 lead 9:54 into the game.

NEWARK, N.J. -- The New Jersey Devils talked for two days about putting more pressure on Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick. And they did in the first period of Game 2 on Saturday evening at the Prudential Center. It just didn't matter, as the Kings lead, 1-0. While the Devils put traffic in front of Quick, they put none in front of Kings defenseman Drew Doughty. Doughty picked up the puck at center ice and skated past two New Jersey players. He then sent a shot through defenseman Bryce Salvador traffic and past goaltender Martin Brodeur for a 1-0 lead eight minutes into the game.

Adam Henrique sat in the New Jersey Devils' locker room with only one thing on his mind Wednesday. "Man, I'm hungry," Henrique told a team official standing next to him. That, in short, could describe the pang of every Devils player who has been flinging pucks at Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick the last week. The Stanley Cup Final had become their hunger games. Quick had hypnotized the Devils through three games. They snapped out of it in the third period Wednesday, getting a 3-1 victory in Game 4 at Staples Center.
