The Bruins were in Detroit to take on the league worst Red Wings for the first time this year. After Detroit would get a very early scoring chance that Tuukka Rask nonchalantly saved, the Bruins went down ice and had a great scoring chance of their own. Unlike the Red Wings who got thwarted, the Bruins were on the board with David Krejci’s 2nd goal of the year, only 1:09 into the game.
After only about 90 seconds later, the Red Wings would get another great scoring chance and this time they would beat Rask to even the game at 1. Halfway through the period, Detroit would get a power play opportunity in which their newly acquired center, Robby Fabbri scored his first goal as a Red Wing, and made the game 2-1.
When the game moved to the second period, the Red Wings got another power play early on. Robby Fabbri would shoot for the second time in the game and once again beat Rask, giving Detroit a two goal lead. Late in the period the Bruins would get within one as Torey Krug scored a power play goal in his home state of Michigan.
Throughout the third period, the Bruins tried to battle back but they just couldn’t put anything together and the Red Wings would score with a minute to play sealing the win. It was a poorly played game for the Bruins who should have skated out of Detroit with an easy two points, but will leave with nothing. They better put out a better effort in their next game when they return home to face the Philadelphia Flyers at 7pm on Sunday.
