DETROIT — Defenseman Niklas Kronwall, center captain Henrik Zetterberg and left winger Tomas Tatar each scored a goal and an assist in the Detroit Red Wings’ 6-1 victory over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night at Joe Louis Arena.

Wingers Justin Abdelkader, Drew Miller and Gustav Nyquist also scored for Detroit (12-7-7). Right winger Johan Franzen had three assists and center Joakim Andersson had two assists as goaltender Jonas Gustavsson made 16 saves.

Right winger Jarome Iginla scored for Boston (16-7-2) and netminder Tuukka Rask stopped 22 shots.

Abdelkader opened the scoring with 8:11 left in the first period when he put in a loose puck from the bottom of the left circle off the rush, 11 seconds after Detroit killed off a high-sticking penalty to Franzen. He picked up the puck after coming out of the penalty box, carried it into the Boston zone and got the lone assist on Abdelkader’s third goal.

The Red Wings scored three goals in less than four minutes in the second period.

Tatar made it 2-0, 6:05 into the second. He scored on a wraparound after carrying the puck from just outside the Red Wings’ blue line and falling down and getting back up — while maintaining control of the puck — in the right circle. It was Tatar’s third goal.

Zetterberg made it 3-0, 8:47 into the middle period when he scored from the left circle for his 11th goal. Kronwall got his goal, on the power play, just 1:14 later.

Miller added his second goal of the season, 8:38 into the third period and Nyquist got his third goal, with 2:53 remaining.

Iginla spoiled Gustavsson shutout attempt with 2:25 left to close out the scoring.
