Nyquist scores with 7:12 left after Jurco ties the game to give Red Wings 3-2 win over Bruins

DETROIT - Gustav Nyquist broke a tie with 7:12 left in the third period, and the Detroit Red Wings held on to beat the Boston Bruins 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Nyquist scored 1:42 after teammate Tomas Jurco tied the game. Jimmy Howard finished with 33 saves to seal the win.

The NHL-leading and Atlantic Division-champion Bruins had won a franchise-record nine straight on the road and had earned at least a point in their previous 16 games. They led Detroit twice, but couldn't put away the young, scrappy and short-handed Red Wings.

Detroit's Tomas Tatar scored early in the second period to tie the game the Bruins were basically dominating. Tatar used his left skate to push the puck across the front of the crease to set up Jurco's goal.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
