The Boston Bruins bounced back from a bad loss with a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night at TD Garden.
Pavel Zacha, Charlie McAvoy, and David Pastrnak (2) were the goalscorers for Boston (highlights below). Bruins goaltender Jeremy Swayman, meanwhile, stopped 23 of 24 Red Wings shots for a .958 save percentage in the winning effort. The B’s are now 7-0-1 on the young season.
Special teams made a big difference for the Bruins in the first period. They killed off two penalties, while scoring the game’s first goal on the power play.
Afer the Bruins had generated multiple high-danger chances against the Red Wings during a man advantage, Pavel Zacha finished a rebound off the centering feed from Brad Marchand to stake the Bruins to a 1-0 lead. After a quiet start to the season, Zacha has now scored a point in four of his last five games.
