The Red Wings jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first 3:10 Friday, but David Krecji’s first goal in 21 games has the B’s down by just one entering the second.

The Wings got on the board just 1:10 into the game when Todd Bertuzzi [1] beat Tuukka Rask [2] on Detroit’s first shot of the game. Henrik Zetterberg [3] got a secondary assist on the play, giving him 42 helpers on the season.

Detroit’s second shot also yielded a goal, as Jiri Hudler hit Daniel Clearly in front of the net, with the right winger picking up his 17th goal of the season.

With the Bruins on the power play, Red Wings netminder Jimmy Howard came out of his net slightly to tend to Milan Lucic [4] on a Zdeno Chara [5] shot. Lucic gained possession of the puck and def it to Krecji, who sent it into the unoccupied net for an easy goal.

The Red Wings outshot the Bruins, 12-7.
