NHL action: Eliáš scores twice for New Jersey, Krejčí earns assist for Bruins


Czech forward Patrik Eliáš scored twice in New Jersey’s lopsided win on Saturday over the New York Islanders. The Devils routed the Islanders by a score of 7:1. The win put New Jersey at top spot in their division, as closest competitors Pittsburgh lost against Atlanta. In the playoffs the Devils are lined-up to face the Montreal Canadiens.

In other NHL action, Boston’s David Krejčí earned an assist on one of three shorthanded goals that the Bruins scored in a remarkable 64 seconds. The Bruins won the game against Carolina 4:2 and clinched a spot in the upcoming playoffs.
