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.

Check out the Berkshire Bank Exciting Rewind in the above video, looking back at Justin Abdelkader’s third goal of the season.

As of March 30, the Berkshire Bank Foundation has raised $11,500 for Cradles to Crayons, which provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive -- at home, at school and at play.

Earlier this season, the foundation raised $10,000 for Soldier On, a private nonprofit organization committed to ending veteran homelessness, and $12,100 for Birthday Wishes, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide birthday parties to children experiencing homelessness.
