When the biggest hit of the night came between members of the same team, you know that there were issues out on the ice.
Even though the Bruins were not expecting a physical matchup with the Red Wings, it was still considered an all-around flat effort. The Bruins will look to redeem themselves on Sunday, when they head to Detroit to close out the home-and-home set.
Even though there weren’t many heavy hits in the game, there was a heavy hitter dropping the ceremonial first puck. Lowell native Micky Ward was honored during a preseason ceremony, and stayed throughout the matchup to cheer on his hometown team.
