Bruins defense holding Red Wings to historic lows

The Boston Bruins have held the Detroit Red Wings to historically poor offensive production. With just two goals through three games, Detroit is off to its worst three-game start in any playoff series since the 1945 Stanley Cup finals. Boston goaltender Tuukka Raskhas had a lot to do with that. The Bruins have turned defense into offense to win the last two games by a combined score of 7-1. The dominating performances have lifted the defending Eastern Conference champions to a 2-1 lead in the opening-round series. Detroit has to win Game 4 at home tonight ( 5, NBC Sports) to avoid facing elimination when the series shifts to Boston for Game 5. – Associated Press
