Linus Ullmark has been arguably the single biggest reason for the Boston Bruins’ historic success in the 2022-23 season. And one could make the case that he was the No. 1 factor in a 3-2 comeback win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday at TD Garden.
Ullmark stopped 30 of 32 Detroit shots in total, shutting the door after the opposition potted two quick ones to put the Bruins in an early hole. But he saved his best performance for the third period, turning aside all 15 shots, including a huge glove save on Alex Chiasson from close range.
