Devils drop fourth straight

The Devils erased an early 2-0 deficit and earned a point in overtime but fell to the defending Stanley Cup Champions for the fourth time this season.

With two goals in regulation, Boston's David Krejci tallied the winner in overtime for a hat trick to edge the Devils 4-3 at TD Garden, handing New Jersey their fourth straight loss.

David Clarkson tied Ilya Kovalchuk for the team lead with his 25th goal of the season but the Devils failed to stave off a series sweep from Boston. The Bruins have outscored them 18-8 during that span.
