After a 3-2 overtime win at the Carolina Hurricanes, the Detroit Red Wings visit the Boston Bruins for the first time since 2011.
Last night was certainly an emotional win for the Wings, one that saw Henrik Zetterberg tie the game with just 17 seconds to go. Minutes later, Stephen Weiss scored his first with the Red Wings in OT, a victory Detroit will look to build off of tonight.
"This gives us a big boost of energy going into Boston against a good hockey club," said Weiss. "We're going to have to be ready for them."
These Original Six teams face off tonight for the first time as division rivals at the TD Garden in Boston.
