Fight The Fatigue - Tonight is Detroit's third game in four nights, plus the latter part of a back-to-back. They've got to be mentally tough and mentally sharp.

Second and Third Lines Must Stay Productive - Stephen Weiss and Dan Cleary each had goals in Boston; that helps alleviate pressure off of the top line, who have been producing consistently.

Penalty Kill Needs to Stay Strong - The PK was terrific yesterday in Boston and was the difference in their 3-2 win. The Wings need to bring that same intensity level tonight.

Detroit is seeking its third straight victory after earning a 3-2 win against the Bruins at TD Garden. Henrik Zetterberg, Stephen Weiss and Daniel Cleary all scored for Detroit and Jonas Gustavsson stopped 28 of 30 shots in his first start of the season to help the Red Wings secure their fourth win of 2013-14.

"In the end it was a real good start for us and for [Gustavsson] because he gets confidence and we need to get 20 games, or 20-plus games, out of him," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "If he feels good about [himself] and our team feels good about him, he can play more and it keeps [Jimmy Howard] fresh."

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!
