The Boston Bruins knocked off the Detroit Red Wings in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal matchup by a 3-0 score to take a 2-1 series lead.
Boston completely dominated at both ends of the ice for the first 30 minutes of the game, surrendering just six shots on goal over that span.
Dougie Hamilton scored his first career playoff goal on the power play on a rocket of a wrist shot that beat Jimmy Howard on the short side over his glove and Jordan Caron scored on a bad line change by the Red Wings, putting the Bruins up 2-0 later in the first period.
That would prove to more than enough offense for the Bruins, as Tuukka Rask was fantastic in net, stopping 23 shots to blank the Red Wings.
The story of the night, once again, was the special teams, where Boston was 1-3 on the power play, netting their opening goal (and game-winning goal) on their first advantage of the night. Detroit was better on the man advantage than they had been in Game 2, but still came up 0-3.
Bruins 3, Red Wings 0. Final
