This game was clearly the 2nd half of a back to back as both squads seemed to have heavy legs for the majority of the night. The fatigue lead to grade A opportunities from both sides yet no one was able to capitalize in regulation thanks to some great saves by both Gustavsson and Bernier. Just as I was preparing for another shootout, Kronwall cut through the neutral zone after receiving a great pass from Big E. Kroner drove to the corner and passed back to Z in the high slot where he hammered a one-timer inside the post for a Red Wings win with under 10 seconds left in OT.

Bruins Goal #1- After a little chaos in the neutral zone Quincey ends up as the first forechecker. After a nice pass Krejci finds himself in a footrace with Kindl and the result was no surprise. Krejci puts home the breakaway to give the Bruins the early lead.
Red Wings Goal #1- After very little in the way of offense by the Wings, the kid line finally gets in on the forecheck and creates a turnover. Tatar is able to fish the puck out of the pile and snipe one on the blocker side.
Bruins Goal #2- The Bruins continue to work the puck down low and dominate on the cycle. Glenny leaves his man to double the puck and when a pass squeaks through the Wings are forced to scramble. With all the switches, Glenny and Z are late to support in front and Kelly is left alone in front.
Red Wings Goal #2-The Red Wing's PP had been pitiful all game, generating only 1 shot in their first 3 attempts. Finally in the third they start to find some chances starting with the 2nd unit. Then after a quick change the 1st unit comes out and Nyquist walks in from Datsyuk's usual spot on the PP, snipes far side and ties things up.
Aside from Howard I thought the Kid Line and Nyquist looked pretty good. Kindl and Z both had rough games, but at least Z's can be explained by going up against Bergeron and Chara all night. Not the Wing's best effort, but Jimmy steals them a point.
