The Detroit Red Wings' offense has kicked up its production the past two games and Monday the Red Wings were able to avenge their worst loss of the early season.

Stephen Weiss broke a tie 8:21 into the second period and Henrik Zetterberg and Daniel Cleary also scored for the Red Wings in a 3-2 win against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden.

Detroit scored eight goals in its first four games of the season. Now the Red Wings have scored eight in their past two, wins against Boston and the Philadelphia Flyers. Detroit, now 4-2-0 on the season, lost 4-1 on its previous trip to Boston, on Oct. 5.

Goaltender Jimmy Howard led the Red Wings out for warm-ups but was replaced as the starter before the game by Jonas Gustavsson. Howard sustained a bruised hand during the Red Wings' win Saturday against the Philadelphia Flyers. However, Red Wings general manager Ken Holland told reporters the injury is not considered serious and Howard could be in net for the Red Wings' next game, Wednesday against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

In his first start of the season, Gustavsson stopped 28 shots. He was activated from injured reserve Oct. 11 after missing time with a groin injury.

Boston goaltender Tuukka Rask allowed more than one goal in a game for the first time this season. He finished with 24 saves for the Bruins, who are now 3-2-0.

Weiss gave the Red Wings a 2-1 lead after he made a backdoor cut to the net and Johan Franzen found him with a cross-ice feed. Weiss beat Rask by stopping the puck and then snapping it over the Boston goaltender's shoulder.

The Red Wings doubled their lead 2:20 later on Cleary's first goal of the season. Daniel Alfredsson was left alone behind the Bruins net and found Cleary cutting to the slot for a re-direct that Rask couldn't stop. Detroit held onto its 3-1 until the second intermission.

Milan Lucic's goal with 1:20 remaining in regulation cut the Detroit lead to 3-2 but the Bruins couldn't score the equalizer.

Thanks for tuning in to our GameDay Blog...tune in tomorrow when the Blue Jackets come to town!

Stay Out of the Penalty Box - Bruins have just 2 Power Play Goals this season, both were against Detroit.

Get Off to a Good Start - Dictate the play. Be ready to go at the opening face off. Score early and take the crowd out of it.

Use Skill to Win - The Bruins are physical and want you to play "their" game. Stay away from that. The Wings must use skill and speed to make them play "our" game.

On October 14, 1984


Reed Larson’s assist against Buffalo gives him 451 career points, as he passes Red Kelly to become the highest scoring defenseman in Red Wings’ history.

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.

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."
