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."
