Rask stops 25 shots; Bruins beat Red Wings 4-1

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) -- Brad Marchand scored the tiebreaking goal 36 seconds into the second period and Tuukka Rask made 25 saves, lifting the Boston Bruins to a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.

Torey Krug and Zdeno Chara each scored power-play goals, and Jordan Caron added an even-strength score for Boston, which won its season opener against Tampa Bay on Thursday.

Henrik Zetterberg scored for the Red Wings, who are in the same division with the Bruins after the NHL realigned following last season.

Detroit's Jimmy Howard, playing his third straight game, made 33 saves. The Red Wings were playing consecutive road nights after beating Carolina 3-2 in overtime.

On the opening shift of the second period, Marchand broke in and fired a wrist shot that caromed into the net off the far post, pushing Boston ahead 2-1.
