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. ...
