Red Wings’ Speed Through Neutral Zone Dooms Bruins During Justin Abdelkader’s First-Period Goal (Video)

The Bruins were hoping for a late power-play goal during the first period, but the Red Wings had other ideas.

Detroit showed off their speed through the neutral zone after killing the penalty, as Johan Franzen burst out of the box while Patrice Bergeron was heading to the bench. Bergy quickly had to turn around, though, realizing there was no time for a line change, but with some red sweaters in the right place at the right time, there was no stopping Detroit from lighting the lamp.
