Detroit suffocated the Boston Bruins in their season opener on Thursday, holding them to just 17 shots on goal in their 2-1 victory. They dictated the play and got their season off to a 1-0 start. While a great start to their season, the Wings were already looking ahead to their next challenge.
“We have to follow that up. Can’t be content and happy,” Justin Abdelkader said. “We have a good team coming in. We need to build off the (Boston) win.”
Tonight, the Wings will play host to the team they knocked out of the 2013 NHL Playoffs, the Anaheim Ducks, on Breast Cancer Awareness Night.
