DETROIT — In less than 48 hours, Detroit took four points against the Bruins, who lost their second straight to the Red Wings because of untimely errors.
“The biggest thing that sticks out for me is the type of mistakes we’ve made in the last two games,” said coach Claude Julien. “There’s mistakes. This is a game of mistakes. But the type of mistakes that you make can make a difference. Bad pinches. We haven’t given up two-on-ones like that in a long time. We gave those up. Ill-advised decisions. Even their first goal, we gave them that one. We didn’t help ourselves tonight. We had some chances when it was 3-2 to tie it up. We had a couple scoring chances. Had we scored, maybe that would have made a difference. But they come back and score on the two-on-one. That kind of put the nail in the coffin.”
* Zach Hamill has been returned to Providence. Hamill was a healthy scratch today after appearing in two games on the third line.
* Milan Lucic said his right foot went numb after blocking a Niklas Kronwall shot. Initially, Lucic couldn’t push off his foot. But Lucic walked off the pain and didn’t miss a shift.
