East Rutherford, NJ - With just 32 seconds remaining in the game, New Jersey's Alexander Mogilny netted the game-winner directly off of the face-off, leading the Devils to a 3-2 victory over the Bruins. Mogilny, who had to leave the game after a hard hit from Nick Boynton, came back to beat Raycroft with a quick wrist shot. Despite the loss, Raycroft was solid between the pipes, making 31 saves on the night and keeping the Bruins in the game until the end. Patrice Bergeron and Sergei Samsonov each scored for the B's, who have now dropped three straight.

The Bruins came out strong in the first period and were rewarded for their effort, notching the game's first goal at 8:49.

On the power play, Patrice Bergeron one-timed a Brian Leetch pass from the top of the circle past Martin Brodeur for a 1-0 lead. The goal was Bergeron's seventh of the season. Joe Thornton was credited with an assist, extending his point streak to six-games.

Boston would jump out to a 2-0 lead 30 seconds into the middle period on Sergei Samsonov's 11th of the season. Joe Thornton started the play by sending the puck up ice to Hal Gill at the point. Gill passed the puck to Samsonov in the slot, where he turned, faked twice and wristed a shot past Brodeur with Thornton creating traffic in front.

New Jersey would come roaring back though. With New Jersey beginning to carry the play, Brian Gionta finally got the Devils on the board at 13:41 of the second to cut the deficit to one.

At 5:27 of the third period, the Devils pulled even at 2-2 on a goal by Jay Pandolfo. Raycroft made a kick save on John Madden's shot from the point, but the rebound was knocked in by a streaking Pandolfo.

The game looked as if it would head to overtime, but Alexander Mogilny made sure it didn't.

With 32 seconds remaining in the game, the Bruins had a key face-off in their end. Travis Green, one of the league's best draw-men, was kicked out of the circle. Subsequently, John Madden won the face-off cleanly and fed Mogilny, who ripped a shot past Raycroft for the win.

The goal was redemption for Mogilny, who earlier in the period was forced to leave the game after a collision with Nick Boynton.

The Bruins will try and respond with a win when they host the Northeast Division's top team, the Ottawa Senators, Thursday night at the TD Banknorth Garden.
