    Game #5: Bruins v Red Wings - Game Day Thread

    RED WINGS (3-2-0) at BRUINS (3-1-0) TV: NHLN-CA, FS-D, NESN

    Season series: Second of four meetings this season. Torey Krug had a power-play goal and assist to lead the Boston Bruins to a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Oct. 5. Tuukka Rask made 25 saves.

    Big story: It's Columbus Day in the United States and Thanksgiving Day in Canada, and this is the lone afternoon start in the NHL on Monday. Two teams that used to see very little of each other get together for the second time in 10 days at TD Garden.

    Team Scope: Red Wings: Coming into Saturday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers, the Detroit power play was the only one in the League without a goal to its credit. Practice would make perfect for the Red Wings, however.

    Todd Bertuzzi ended the drought on the team's first man advantage of the night, scoring the game's opening goal, and Niklas Kronwall and Pavel Datsyuk also connected on the power play in a 5-2 win that was sealed by a pair of goals by Henrik Zetterberg.

    "I thought we entered the zone pretty good, we moved the puck around quite a bit and most important thing, we shot the puck," Bertuzzi said. "We got the puck to the net and we had traffic around there, and we had some good plays. That was the key, moving it and getting as many shots as we can."

    Bruins: It's a quick stop home for Boston before heading back out on the road for a three-game trip. The Bruins spent a good portion of Saturday afternoon stymied by the reigning Vezina Trophy winner, Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky, but eventually broke through with help from one of their newcomers.

    After a late second-period goal by Chris Kelly knotted the score heading into the third, Loui Eriksson, the big return from the Dallas Stars in the offseason Tyler Seguin trade, scored his first goal with the Bruins at 49 seconds of the third. It was the difference in a 3-1 victory. "It wasn't the prettiest one but I'll take it," Eriksson said. "I've had some slow starts over the years. It will come. It's always nice to get the first one."

    Who's hot: Four different Red Wings finished Saturday's game with three points, including Daniel Alfredsson, who set up each of their power-play goals. Kronwall, Datsyuk and Zetterberg were the others. … Rask has picked right up where he left off last season for the Bruins, posting a 1.00 goals-against average and .965 save percentage (115 shots, 111 saves) in four starts.

    Injury report: Detroit forward Jordin Tootoo left Saturday's game after taking a slash to the back of the knee in the final minute and is day-to-day. Forwards Patrick Eaves (knee/ankle) and Darren Helm (back) are on injured reserve. … Boston forward Carl Soderberg (ankle) is on injured reserve."

     

    Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

    Yawn...Anyone have some coffee ?

    But how was that play on Caron not interference, and did anybody miss the too many men call? How was that one not called?

    Looks like Claude may have moved Reilly Smith up to play with Bergeron and Eriksson. Marchand with Kelly. Interesting move.

    Great play by Datsyuk, but Smith has to break that pass up. Great finish by Zetterberg.

    Game 1 :( Still had a great time heckling Prince Fielder about his cholesterol being higher than his batting average.

    Bruins having some trouble with the Datsyuk-Zetteberg line early on. The pace of the game has been great except for some turnovers in the neutral zone by Bartkowski and Bergeron.

    Last 5-7 minutes of the 1st was owned by the Bruins. Eriksson's goal was off his leg from a shot by Manchuk.

    Marchand still looks lost. Thought the 4th line looked the best so far.

    Krug set up Iginla with a wide open net on a one-timer, but Iginla kinda whiffed. Krug could have put it in a better spot, but whatevs.

    Kelly continues to look like an infinitely improved player over last year. Really impressed with him, Caron and Smith, who were the biggest question marks heading into the year.

    I wouldn't blame Bergeron for that turnover, though. Bad ice where he turned it over.

    Every time I see Bertuzzi the Steve Moore incident comes to mind.

    Krug with the give-and-go behind the Wing blue line to create a scoring chance for himself.

    My, that escalated quickly. I mean that really got out of hand fast.

    Bruins are getting burned by not picking up the weak side/lane crash.

    Krug is generating some really good chances here; good work to draw the penalty.
