(Newser) – "It's unfortunate for our fans that they probably haven't had a chance to see us at our best," said Boston coach Claude Julien after a 3-1 Devils' victory, the Boston Herald reports. The words carried a double meaning last night, with snow impeding attendance, and the Bruins continuing their losing ways at home, despite success on the road.

The Bruins' had won three in a row before returning home for their third game in four nights, where they were sunk by New Jersey. "I think mentally it's been draining. It's been a hell of a go, schedule-wise," said Marc Savard, who scored the B's lone goal early in the third. Jamie Langenbrunner had two goals for the Devils.
