Final: Red Wings 4, Bruins 2

All done in Detroit. Wings with a 4-2 win and four points over the Bruins in the last two days.

13:35 3d period: Wings 4-2
Todd Bertuzzi cashes in cross-crease pass from Johan Franzen. Starts with D-zone puck-moving by the Wings.

13:01 3d period: Wings 3-2
Nathan Horton doesn’t get enough on his close-range shot. A little more muscle and it might be tied.

6:14 3d period: Wings 3-2
Patrice Bergeron’s stick busts in the corner. Bergeron’s had bad luck with his sticks lately.

3:55 3d period: Wings 3-2
Milan Lucic is back on the bench.


3:03 3d period: Wings 3-2
Milan Lucic to the room. Takes a Niklas Kronwall slapper off the right foot.

20:00 2d period: Wings 3-2
Lots of chances for the Wings in the second. Adam McQuaid shaken up late in the period after taking a puck off the right hand.

12:44 2d period: Wings 3-2
Patrick Eaves with the perfect seam pass to an in-stride Kris Draper. Draper goes high blocker on Tim Thomas.

7:51 2d period: 2-2
Slashing on Zdeno Chara. Detroit getting back to its skilled game.

6:22 2d period: 2-2
Tim Thomas stops Jakub Kindl’s shot to halt Detroit’s momentum. Third line caught out on a far-too-long cycle in the D-zone.

3:54 2d period: 2-2
Pavel Datsyuk bangs in rebound of Brian Rafalski’s point shot. Tim Thomas hung up on Adam McQuaid and can’t get over in time.

2:10 2d period: Bruins 2-1
Darren Helm nearly gets past Mark Recchi on the PP for the second straight game. That will continue to be an issue as long as Recchi is on the point.

0:28 2d period: Bruins 2-1
Brad Marchand draws a high-sticking call on Brian Rafalski. Hard-nosed PK’ing by Marchand as usual.

0:00 2d period: Bruins 2-1
First goal officially changed to Tyler Seguin from Blake Wheeler.


20:00 1st period: Bruins 2-1
Much more characteristic first period by the Bruins. Wings had skated the Bruins out of TD Garden after 20 minutes on Friday.

18:50 1st period: Bruins 2-1
Mark Stuart with repeated cross-checks to Tomas Holmstrom. Rugged stuff from Stuart.

12:33 1st period: Bruins 2-1
First goal to be reviewed at first intermission. Sure looked like Tyler Seguin’s goal instead of Blake Wheeler.

12:17 1st period: Bruins 2-1
PPG for Brad Marchand. Drives to the net and taps in Michael Ryder feed.

10:16 1st period: 1-1
Chance for Milan Lucic. Starts with a good backcheck by Nathan Horton to strip Henrik Zetterberg.

9:25 1st period: 1-1
Bruins playing a far heavier game today than on Friday. Much better so far.

6:09 1st period: 1-1
Giveaway by Brad Marchand leads to Todd Bertuzzi chance all alone in front. Tim Thomas comes out to poke puck away. But Bertuzzi gains control and goes upstairs. One of the worst decisions Marchand has made lately.

3:35 1st period: Bruins 1-0
Todd Bertuzzi nearly slips a backhander through Tim Thomas. Johan Franzen pokes the puck in after the whistle.

1:29 1st period: Bruins 1-0
Welcome back Tyler Seguin. Sets up Blake Wheeler on his first shift. Good work by Seguin and Wheeler down low.

0:00 1st period: 0-0
Zach Hamill and Steven Kampfer are the healthy scratches. This is the fourth and final game of Daniel Paille’s suspension.
