Bruins Skate Past Red Wings, Improve to 2-0

The Boston Bruins beat the Detroit Red Wings in decisive fashion on Saturday night, skating past a solid Red Wings team to a score of 4-1.

Torey Krug started the scoring on the first power play of the night, shooting it past Detroit Goalie Jimmy Howard less than 30 seconds in to the power play.

Detroit’s Henrik Zetterberg tied it up five minutes later with a wrist shot past Bruins Goalie, Tuuka Rask.

After the first period, it was all Boston, adding two tallies in the second and the nail in the coffin in the third.  Brad Marchand and Jordan Caron both scored their first of the season in the second.  The big man, Zdeno Chara, scored the final goal, also his first of the season, on a power play in the fourth.

The Bruins continue with their powerplay prowess, scoring on two of their four chances and killing off their own two penalties without repercussions, both by David Krejci.

I had a personal conundrum with this game.  I am a huge Boston sports fan.  I have been to many, many Bruins games and have enjoyed every one of them.  With that said, I went to school with Jimmy Howard.  I cheered for him while he was wearing Black Bear blue and white for three years.  As a huge UMaine hockey fan, cheering for him is a permanent part of my being (as is cheering for Mike Lundin of the Ottawa Senators and Dustin Penner of the Anaheim Ducks).  It was a hard game for me to watch.  With that said, I’m glad the Bruins improved their record.
