DETROIT - David Krejci and Reilly Smith both scored in regulation and again in the shootout as the Boston Bruins beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 Wednesday night.

The Bruins outshot Detroit 35-18 in regulation, and Jimmy Howard made three key saves in overtime ? the last to stop Torey Krug at point-blank range. Howard, though, couldn't stop Krejci and Smith in the shootout, while neither Gustav Nyquist or Andrej Nestrasil could get their shots on net.

Nyquist tied the score at 2:56 of the third period, snapping a wrist shot past Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask to end Detroit's streak of nine scoreless power plays. Tomas Tatar also scored for the Red Wings.

Boston had two great chances in the final minute of regulation, but Howard made a pad save on Dougie Hamilton, then knocked away Simon Gagne's attempt to put in the rebound.
