BOSTON (Ticker) - Both the New Jersey Devils and Boston Bruins actually might prefer to play Tuesday's game at Continental Airlines Arena.

Currently riding an eight-game winning streak at home, the Devils attempt to snap a three-game road skid when they skate with the Bruins, who actually have played much better on the road of late.

New Jersey extended its home winning streak with a 7-4 triumph over Tampa Bay on Tuesday. Jamie Langenbrunner scored twice and Scott Gomez added a goal and three assists for the Devils, who improved to 8-3-1 in their last 12 games.

However, New Jersey has mustered a total of two goals in its last three road contests - both in Saturday's 4-2 setback in Toronto. The Devils, who are just 11-14-3 on the road, have not won away from home since a 4-0 win against the New York Islanders on January 24.

Meanwhile, Boston won for the sixth time in seven road games with Wednesday's 3-1 victory at Pittsburgh. Defenseman Brad Stuart scored a pair of power-play goals and Tim Thomas came within 1:31 of posting his second career shutout.

Travis Green also tallied and Glen Murray contributed a pair of assists for the Bruins, who have dropped two of their last three home games.

New Jersey has posted a pair of one-goal victories in its two meetings with Boston this season.
