Discuss: Red Wings dominate Bruins on NBCSN

In an Original Six match-up, the Detroit Red Wings hung six goals on the Boston Bruins.

The Red Wings took the lead in the first period and the floodgates opened in the second and third periods, as they defeated the visiting Bruins 6-1 to conclude Wednesday’s Rivalry Night on NBCSN.

Let’s discuss:

    • Things haven’t necessarily gone the Red Wings’ way of late. And you can look at this any number of ways, depending on your perspective. The Red Wings have won only three times in their last 11 games; won three times in their last four games; and twice in a row. Moving on up.
    • No Pavel Datsyuk (head) and Todd Bertuzzi (shoulder) for Detroit. No problem. Tonight.
    • Not the Bruins best night. They had 17 shots on goal.
    • Jarome Iginla scored his fifth of the season for the Bruins, cutting the Red Wings to five with 2:25 remaining in regulation. Is he in your hockey pool?
    • Should be mentioned that Red Wings goalie Jonas Gustavsson has won his last three starts. In his last two starts, he’s allowed a combined two goals on 39 shots.
    • Despite their struggles in November, the Red Wings are only three points back of the Bruins for top spot in the Atlantic Division. The Bruins do have a game in hand.

    IT’S ALIVE !

    This statement above that the Red Wings are “only three points back of the Bruins for top spot in the Atlantic Division” pretty much sums up all we need to know about these east coast snobs eh ? LOL ! … man, talk about planet Earth spinning off from it’s axis ! … and like, what’s happened to the Bruin’s ‘headhunting’ beanstalk from Turkmenistan ?

      Head hunting? If not for Chara, Detroit would’ve scored 12 goals last night. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.It was the Red Wings night, no doubt. Worst offensive effort I ever saw in 45 years of watching Boston.

    Great win by the Red Wings… which we know they’re capable of any night. That’s what’s been driving everyone crazy lately… including Babs

    Now keep it rolling… same speed, same effort.

      He is referring to Mike Babcock, the head coach for the Red Wings. Actually, it is now Dr. Babcock, since he was awarded an honorary doctorate by McGill University.

    Buh… that was just… ugh. Disgusting game.

    • cheliostwin - Nov 28, 2013 at 12:51 AM

      I feel your pain. The Red Wings had a similar game against Ottawa about 6 weeks ago, only it was a home game for them. At least the Bruins didn’t get embarrassed in their own rink.

      • polegojim - Nov 28, 2013 at 9:59 AM

        Yes – every good team has some of those games.

        It was momentarily inspiring… but means no more than 1 game should for either team.

    yeah, i got babs…thanks

    was cuddles and snuffy already taken…?
