When Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk scored the lone goal in Game 1, it looked like the Red Wings had solved the Boston Bruins' defense and Datsyuk could be in for a big series.

Instead, the Red Wings have scored one more goal the past two games and the Bruins have scored seven, including goals from unlikely sources like Jordan Caron and Justin Florek. The Bruins have looked every bit the Presidents' Trophy-winning team, while Detroit has appeared a bit overmatched.

"We've been a way better team than that, that's unacceptable," coach Mike Babcock said after Game 3. "And that's not taking anything away from the Bruins. I thought we looked like kids, for sure."

The Red Wings will have to grow up in a hurry to avoid getting pushed to the brink of elimination in Game 4.

Daniel Alfredsson
Alfredsson
Daniel Alfredsson will not play tonight; he's out with a back injury.

Mike Babcock said Alfie "needed another day"
and Joakim Andersson will take his place.

Andersson
"Right now, and when I first heard about it, it’s just exciting...Just play my game, so be smart in all three zones and get some pucks to the net, be good on the penalty kill, be good in the lanes and be in front of the net when the puck gets there."
- Joakim Andersson

Andersson will likely play alongside Helm and Jurco, but Mike Babcock said that may change throughout the course of the game.

Henrik Zetterberg skated, but did not take part in line rushes.
The rest of the lines are expected to stay the same.


Jakub Kindl is expected to take Alfie's
spot on the blue line on the Power Play.

Start Fast - The crowd will be fired up. Use that energy and take it to the Bruins early.

Howard is Key - He needs to be better than Rask. Make the big saves all game.

Power Play Needs to Show Power - It starts with the breakout. Establish pressure in the offensive zone. Get second and third chances. One and done won't work.
