Bruins shut out Wings


Bruins goaltender Toukka Rask makes on of 22 saves in Tuesday night's 3--0 win over Detroit Red Wings. 

DETROIT — Goaltender Tuuka Rask made 22 saves for his fourth career playoff shutout and the Boston Bruins beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-0 on Tuesday night at Joe Louis Arena in Game 3 of the first round playoff series.

The Bruins take a 2-1 series lead in Game 4 in Detroit on Thursday.

Center Patrice Bergeron scored a goal and added an assist and defenseman Dougie Hamilton and right winger Jordan Caron also scored for Boston, the Eastern Conference's No. 1 seed.

Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard stopped 31 shots in the loss. The Red Wings have scored only two goals in the series, winning Game 1 by a 1-0 score before losing Game 2, 4-1.

Bergeron's empty-net goal with 1:59 left clinched it for the Bruins.

Boston left winger Brad Marchand hit the goal post from the bottom of the left circle 2:18 into the third period.

Detroit center Darren Helm hit the goal post almost eight minutes into the second period.

Boston led 2-0 after dominating the first period.

Hamilton's power-play goal nine minutes into the game opened the scoring when he beat Howard with a wrist shot from the left circle. It was the Bruins' third power-play goal of the series.

Caron made it 2-0 with 4:12 left in the opening period when he put in left winger Shawn Thornton's rebound after a bad line change by Detroit.NOTES: Boston last won a game in Detroit on March 11, 2007. ... Detroit RW Daniel Alfredsson did not play because of a sore back. He was replaced in the lineup by C Joakim Andersson.





... Boston RW Reilly Smith and Detroit D Brendan Smith are brothers. ... Boston D Matt Bartkowski played his first game of the series after missing the first two with the flu.
