Boston, MA, United States (4E Sports) - Tuukka Rask stopped 34 shots as the Boston Bruins tied the Eastern Conference playoff series at one game apiece after a 4-1 triumph over the Detroit Red Wings Sunday at TD Garden.
Justin Florek, Reilly Smith, Milan Lucic and Zdeno Chara scored while Jarome Iginla and Torey Krug each had two assists as the Bruins went 2-for-4 in power play to snap a four-game losing streak to the Red Wings.
Game 3 of the best-of-7 series will be played Tuesday at Joe Louis Arena where the odds are against the Bruins.
The Bruins have lost four in a row at Joe Louis Arena, including two losses there this season. Boston hasn't won in Detroit since March 11, 2007.
Coming off his Game 1 shutout, Jimmy Howard stopped 25 of 29 shots while Luke Glendening scored Detroit's lone goal. Pavel Datsytuk, who was Detroit's goal-scorer in Game 1, was limited to one shot on goal.
The Bruins scored their first goal of the series 7:28 into Game 2 when Florek hit a one-timer past Howard. It was Florek's first career playoff goal.
Boston doubled its lead during a power play when Smith found the puck behind Howard and tucked it in at 10:35 of the first.
Detroit solved Rask at 13:20 of the second when Glendening hit one past Rask to cut the lead Boston's lead to 2-1. It was Glendening's first career playoff goal.
Shortly after the Bruins killed off Dougie Hamilton's minor tripping penalty, they extended their lead back to two goals.
Iginla found a cutting Lucic, whose shot trickled past Howard and into the net at 18:16 for a 3-1 Boston lead.
Chara gave the Bruins a three-goal cushion when he stuffed in a rebound of an Iginla shot during a power play at 2:27 of the third period.
