ONE BIG TAKEAWAY
Despite being shorthanded without Brad Marchand on the first line (and without coach Bruce Cassidy on the bench), Boston managed to outshoot Detroit 42-16 through three periods.
Unfortunately, they couldn’t find the net until the third period during a 5-on-3 — their first power play of the game. But the lead was short lived, Detroit answered soon enough and it proved to be all the Red Wings needed.
STARS OF THE GAME
— David Pastrnak netted Boston’s only goal of the game, taking full advantage of a 5-on-3 on assists from Taylor Hall and Charlie McAvoy after Gustav Lindstrom and Marc Staal were sent to the box within a minute of each other. Pastrnak had nine shots, too.
Anyone confident in Detroit had great odds with the Red Wings moneyline at +190 entering the game, via DraftKings Sportsbook. A $100 bet would have paid out $290.
