Boston, MA (SportsNetwork. Bertrand Traore Jersey .com) - Milan Lucic potted a pair of goals in support of a lightly tested Niklas Svedberg in the Boston Bruins 3-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils. Bostons second win in as many nights came even easier than the final score indicated, as the Bruins put up 43 shots to New Jerseys 14 to make Svedbergs second career shutout a relatively stress-free one. Carl Soderberg added a goal to help Boston record a point for a seventh consecutive home game (4-0-3). I thought right away that we had a strong game, said Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron. We limited their chances and their shots on net. After putting up nine goals in back-to-back wins over Philadelphia and Buffalo coming in, the Devils generated little offense on this night. Cory Schneider managed to keep New Jersey in it most of the way by stopping an outstanding 40-of-42 attempts. You have to get shots. We didnt get shots, said Devils acting head coach Lou Lamoriello. The Bruins outshot New Jersey by a whopping 18-3 count in the first period, though they werent able to beat Schneider until converting on their third power play chance of the stanza. With Jaromir Jagr in the box for hooking, Lucic broke the scoreless tie by launching a well-placed long drive into the lower left corner of the Devils net 1:10 prior to the initial intermission. Boston continued to dominate puck possession in the second period and extended the lead near the midway mark of the frame. After Chris Kelly knocked New Jerseys Mark Fraser off the puck in the Devils zone, Soderberg collected the loose disc and fired it over Schneiders shoulder for a 2-0 advantage. The Devils mustered just four shots for the middle session, though they nearly halved their deficit when Scott Gomezs wrister clanged off the post late in the period. New Jersey continued to struggle offensively over the final 20 minutes, with Lucic putting the finishing touches on the win with an empty-netter with 11.7 seconds remaining.

The Senators return from a lengthy layoff caused by Wednesdays attack on Parliament Hill to host the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night. Branislav Ivanovic Jersey . -- Jay Haas and Peter Jacobsen took the second-round lead Saturday in the Champions Tours Legends of Golf, teaming for a 6-under 48 in windy conditions on the par-3 Top of the Rock course.Former Arsenal and England striker Alan Smith feels Theo Walcott can have no complaints after being left out of Roy Hodgson’s provisional 26-man squad for Euro 2016. The Gunners forward has struggled for form since returning from a calf injury in December, scoring just five goals in 28 appearances during that period.Walcott himself did not seem surprised to miss out, tweeting: I am of course disappointed not to make the squad, but I have spoken with Roy and respect his decision. Smith backed the decision not to include Walcott in the squad but admits the inclusion of Newcastle winger Andros Townsend was a little surprising. Theo Walcott reacts on social media to the news that hes not in Englands provisional squad for Euro 2016 He would have been expecting it, I think. He knows he hasnt produced the form for Arsenal since coming back from injury that he would need to, given the competition for that place, Smith said of Walcott on Sky Sports Now.Having said that, it was there to go for because Townsend has come from left field a little bit.Walcott didnt take part yesterday [in the 4-0 win over Aston Villa] because of a slight hamstring injury. He would have been upset but would have accepted it. What now for Walcott? What now for Theo Walcott after Euro 2016 squad exclusion Manchester City midfielder Fabian Delph also made the initial squad, despite an indifferent campaign that saw him score twice in 27 appearances for City in all competitions.Former England player and Enngland U21 coach Stuart Pearce, also a guest on Sky Sports Now, admitted he had not expected Delph to be included. Kyle Scott Jersey. It surprised me. I dont think he has had a real impact at the back end of the season, said Pearce.But Roy likes him and we have spoken about that loyalty, you build up a credit with the manager. Manchester Citys Fabian Delph has earned a place in England squad I think Delph being in the 26 is on credit, not on the immediate couple of months to finish the season.One player whose inclusion was expected is Premier League winner Danny Drinkwater.Its deserved. When you go into major tournaments, you need players who are on form, Danny Higginbotham said on the show.There havent been many better midfielders in the Premier League this season.  He has shown what he is capable of. Here are the keys dates for Englands Euro 2016 campaign He can get forward, we saw with the goal he scored yesterday [in the 1-1 draw at Chelsea], but more importantly he looks after that defence really well.If England are going to be more attack-minded and If you have that option of him or Eric Dier, obviously Dier will be the one that is going to play but its a great option to have.Its a very good inclusion if he remains in the squad.
