NEWARK, N. Koa Misi Jersey .J. -- The Boston Bruins are not only threatening to run away with the Eastern Conference, they are challenging St. Louis for the NHLs best regular-season record. The Bruins rolled to their 10th straight victory Tuesday night, getting goals from Brad Marchand and Jarome Iginla in a 59-second span early in the second period in beating the slumping New Jersey Devils 4-2. The winning streak ties Anaheim for the NHLs longest this season and it has moved the Bruins (99 points) just two behind the idle Blues in the race for the Presidents Trophy. St. Louis has a game in hand. "Its been good," Bruins coach Claude Julien said after the team posted its third 10-game winning streak since he took over as coach in 2007-08. "Our guys just keep believing and doing the right things," he added. "Thats given us the opportunity to win." The right thing for the Bruins was their response after Patrik Elias scored for New Jersey with a two-man advantage just 29 seconds into the second period. Not only did it tie the game at 1, it happened so fast that the Devils had 1:28 left on the second power play. Instead of sagging while playing their second game in as many nights, the Bruins responded. Marchand scored his league-leading fifth short-handed goal and the red-hot Iginla pushed the lead to two goals less than a minute late. "Its always nice when you are able to get a goal right after they score one, and getting it short-handed is always nice," Marchand said. The winning streak is the Bruins longest since a 10-game run in November 2011. Its also four shy of the franchise record set in 1929-30. "Were not thinking about anything," Marchand said of the record and the run at the Presidents Trophy. "Weve cleared that out of our minds and are trying to take it game by game and day by day. Weve played too many games in too short of a time to think like that. Its just a struggle getting up every day and looking at the next game. Its been a pretty tiring month. "Were staying focused, and if we do that, well continue our run." Patrice Bergeron and Chris Kelly also scored for Boston. Chad Johnson made 20 saves as the Eastern Conference leaders hurt the Devils post-season hopes by sending them to their third straight loss. Bergeron also had the primary assist on Marchands goal while Zdeno Chara, who was celebrating his 37th birthday, made the breakout pass out of the zone. The goal had not been announced when Iginla broke into the Devils zone after taking a long pass and beat Martin Brodeur between the pads with a shot from the right circle. It was his 26th goal of the season and his fifth in the last three games. Elias and Travis Zajac scored for the Devils, who have 13 games left to either turn things around or they will miss the playoffs for the second straight year and third time in four. Brodeur made 27 saves. "Our effort is just not at the right point for the urgency that we need to make that push toward the playoffs," Brodeur said. The fans at the Prudential Center noted that by booing New Jersey as it left the ice down 3-1 after two periods. "We deserved to get booed," said Elias, whose goal was his 16th. Kelly stretched the lead to 4-1 a little more than seven minutes into the third period, beating Brodeur in close after taking a pass from Carl Soderberg. Zajac snapped a shot over Johnson (15-3-1) a little more than two minutes later. It was his 13th of the season. The Bruins, who were playing on consecutive nights, dominated the first period, taking the first nine shots. Bergeron put them ahead with 5:27 left in the period when he was sent in alone by Reilly Smith and beat Brodeur with a backhander that seemed to slip off his stick. NOTES: Bruins D Johnny Boychuk missed his second straight game with a leg injury. ... Devils F Ryan Carter missed his second straight with an upper-body injury. New Jersey recalled Tim Sestito from Albany (AHL) to take his place on the fourth line. ... The Bruins had killed off 20 straight penalties before Elias scored with 6 seconds left in the two-man advantage. ... Iginlas goal was the 556th of his career, tying him with Bruins great John Bucyk for 25th place in NHL history. ... Devils F Jaromir Jagr picked up an assist on Zajacs goal, the 1,044th of his career, five behind Gordie Howe for eighth in league history. Cody Parkey Jersey . Smith, who raised eyebrows at the CFL combine in March with his ability on both sides of the ball, confirmed in a statement he tested positive for the anabolic steroid Stanozolol prior to auditioning for league officials. Mark Duper Jersey . Terrance Broadway threw for 227 yards and Hunter Stover kicked three field goals as the Ragin Cajuns won an unprecedented fourth straight New Orleans Bowl with a 16-3 triumph over Nevada. http://www.dolphinsteamauthenticshop.com/c-5-dolphins-larry-csonka-jersey.aspx . Third-place Madrid fell behind and settled for a 2-2 draw earlier at Osasuna in a match both sides finished with 10 men, and Barcelona didnt let the chance escape. Barcelona, still without the injured Lionel Messi, again turned to Neymar after his hat trick against Celtic in the Champions League on Wednesday to convert a penalty on the half-hour mark and restore the lead in the 68th after Villarreal levelled.SINGAPORE - Eugenie Bouchards brilliant season on the WTA Tour came to an anticlimactic end.Bouchard was defeated 6-1, 6-1 by Serena Williams on Thursday, eliminating her from semifinal contention at the season-ending WTA Finals.The native of Westmount, Que., struggled at the prestigious tournament, failing to win a set in three straight losses against Simona Halep, Ana Ivanovic and Williams.Still, the mere fact that Bouchard made it to a tournament reserved for the top eight players in the world in her first full season on the tour outweighs the disappointment of her tough finish in Singapore.Yeah, its been fun, Bouchard said of her WTA Finals debut. Definitely a unique experience compared to any other tournament, one I would love to come back to in the future.Definitely disappointed with my play this whole week, but I feel like I can do so much better. Thats a positive I can take out of it as well.Despite the way it ended, this season was a resounding success for Bouchard. The 20-year-old made a big splash at the Grand Slam level, advancing to the Wimbledon final and the semifinals of the Australian Open and French Open.She rose to No. 5 in the world, the highest position ever achieved by a Canadian, and won her first WTA tournament in May in Nurnberg, Germany.Its been crazy, hectic, intense. I dont know, those words come to mind, Bouchard said of the last 10 months. Really enjoyable as well. No matter how tough its been, I love playing tennis.Bouchard came into the tournament with only two tour matches in a month due to injuries, and won only 11 games across her three matches.I didnt have ideal preparation but that can happen to a number of players at any given tournament, she said.Bouchard said she was impressed with the carnival atmosphere of the WTA Finals, complete with pyrotechnics for the player pre-match introductions.I tweeted that before I knew the entrance was so grand. Then the first time I walked out I was like, This is actually like the Hunger Games, she said. Yeah, just like were walking out, one person left standing, walking out to our death maybe. It was intense.Bouchard said shell take some time off to relax before next season starts early next year.Im going to go into hibernation mode. Dont know when Ill wake up. Might be days; might be weeks, she said.Ill keep you guys posted when I do wake up eventually. Going to eat some cookie dough, hug my little brother. Thats all in my plans right now.Williams rebounded from the worst beating of her professional career to rout Bouchard, yet her title defence remains in the balance.Williams was humbled by Halep the previous day, when the 18-time Grand Slam champion won only two games.Williams will make the final four unless Ivanovic manages to beat Halep in straight sets on Friday. Halep is guaranteed a semifinal berth.Meanwhile, the outcome of the other group remains uncertain, with none of the four players qualified for the semis, and none out of contention. Kenyan Drake Jersey. Petra Kvitova beat Maria Sharapova 6-3, 6-2, further eroding the Russian players hopes of claiming the year-end No. 1 ranking.Sharapova, who needs to win the title and rely on Williams not reaching the final if she is to bump the American from the top spot, fell to a 0-2 record while Kvitova is 1-1.In order for Sharapova to progress to the semis, she will need to win her last match against Agnieszka Radwanska and rely on Caroline Wozniacki beating Kvitova, and have both matches decided in straight sets.Williams credited her coach Patrick Mouratoglou with lifting her out of the doldrums and preparing her for Thursdays match.I started to believe that maybe I could come play another match, Williams said. I wasnt quite sure that I could.I was feeling mighty low. I was able to feed off this belief. I know that sounds weird, even though Ive won so many titles, I still at some point feel like, Oh gosh, maybe I might not be able to do this or maybe I might not be able to do that?Williams was fatalistic about whether she will make the semifinals and remain in the running for a third straight title at the season-ending championships.If I wanted to win and be a part of the event, I should have won my match yesterday or should have done better, Williams said. If I dont qualify, Ill be sad, but it wasnt my year. Im not going to fall out and die.Sharapova, who lost the Wimbledon final to Kvitova in 2011, beat the Czech left-hander in their past five meetings and started brightly by winning the opening two games. But Kvitova took over from there, winning 11 of the next 12 games.Kvitova said she was feeling burnt out during her opening loss to Radwanska, so took an unusual approach to freshen up for Thursday.When I lost against Aga ... I was so tired and sick of the tennis for a moment, Kvitova said. So I didnt practice today at all, and I just really relaxed and cleaned my mind a little bit.Earlier, Wozniacki moved closer to a place in the semis by beating Radwanska 7-5, 6-3 for her second win in the group stage.The first set, which began with four service breaks in five games, lasted 67 minutes and contained some lengthy rallies that were punctuated by superb shot-making.Radwanska ended up the loser but played a couple of extraordinary volley winners: One picked up at her shoelaces and lifted diagonally over the net, and another leaping effort played with her back to the net.I just needed some more good serves as well in that match, said Radwanska, who has a win and a loss.Wozniacki was able to smile after Radwanskas trick shots.Im like, OK, you know what, thats just too good, Wozniacki said. You can either get frustrated or laugh — its better to laugh. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
