In those first 3 games, there was one constant for Detroit and that was the scoring of Henrik Zetterberg. In all 3 contests leading up to the Olympic Break, Zetterberg had at least one goal when playing the Bruins. Zetterberg was one of the NHL stars who was injured while participating in Sochi. If he does return to the Red Wings this season it will not be in round 1 of the playoffs.
The most recent time the Bruins faced the Red Wings was on April 2nd in Detroit. Detroit was playing playoff hockey to continue their postseason appearance streak, while the Bruins were faltering after having their wining streak snapped. Although the Bruins put the puck on net 35 times, Jimmy Howard was putting on a clinic in net for the Red Wings. The Red Wings would score the tying and game-winning goals midway through the 3rd period to prevent the Bruins from continuing on their point streak.
Unlike other people, I'm going to predict a 5 game series with the Bruins coming out on top. Specifically, I'm predicting the Bruins to win both games this weekend and then lose the first game in Detroit.
