After a one to one tie from two periods of play, the Boston Bruins scored their second goal at the beginning of the 3rd period.
However, the resilient Red Wings answered with two more of their own to win in Detroit.
In a scrum in front of the net, dirty Boston knocked Tommy Tatar’s helmet off. Tatar was able to kick the puck over to Tomas Jurco who punched it in for the tie.
Gustav Nyquist scored the game-winner by taking it the length and beating every Bruin in his path, the final their goalie with a shot while he was coming down the left side of the rink to the upper-right corner of the net.
The Wings then defended the rest of the game to keep the Bruins from forcing overtime.
Jimmy Howard saved 33 shots.
*Tatar scored our first goal on a slap shot from the right wing with one second left on the Red Wings power play. That tied it at one.
If you touch Nyquist, you will get burned. *Sizzling* “Ouch.”
