The win against the Red Wings may have been a turning point in the wrong direction.
Brad Marchand scored again in the Bruins win.
Carl Soderberg had a goal and two assists, and the Boston Bruins had a season-high 45 shots in a 5-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Monday night.
David Krejci and Reilly Smith both scored in regulation and again in the shootout as the Boston Bruins beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 Wednesday night.
The Bruins’ slow start and sluggish play resulted in a 2-1 loss to the Red Wings.
Gustav Nyquist’s power-play goal in the second period lifted Detroit to a 2-1 victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night in the Red Wings’ season opener.
Detroit edged Boston 4-3 in shootout.
It should never be forgotten that the Bruins survived and thrived after that Toronto scare in last year’s playoffs.
Brad Marchand is not a big, bad Bruin. He is a big, bad actor.
