The Morning After: Bruins blank the Devils

By Mike Miccoli, Boston Bruins correspondent

What a difference a game makes.

Things got quiet real fast after the Bruins dropped three straight games at home, the most recent coming this past Saturday against the Ottawa Senators. On Monday night, the 17,565 sold-out crowd at the TD Garden were on their feet applauding a Bruins team that simply manhandled an already-weaken New Jersey squad. Led by another outstanding performance from Tim Thomas, the Boston Bruins shut out the Devils, 3-0.

Thomas becomes the first goaltender in the NHL to get to four shutouts, one shy of tying his career high of five set in the 2008-09 season. But the former Vezina winner wasn’t the only Bruin who played a big game. Here are some quick hits on The Morning After on what you may have missed from Monday night’s game.
