2nd period:

4:27 -- DETROIT GOAL -- Pavel Datsyuk makes it 2-0 on a nice patient pass from Kronwall, who had just missed the net on a setup from Zetterberg. But he recovered it behind the net and got it to Datsyuk who was wide open, and Rask didn't have a chance. 

8:03 -- Kevan Miller gets the box for roughing. Marchand, meanwhile, cross checked Zetterberg, but no call. Red Wings go to the power play. It was short-lived as Todd Bertuzzi gets called for interference. The teams play a couple minutes of 4-on-4. 

10:14 -- BOSTON GOAL -- Torey Krug's shot from the top of the circle hit something on the way in. There were just seconds left in Bertuzzi's penalty, so it was a power play goal. 

13:14 -- Gregory Campbell put Darren Helm into the boards from behind and gets called for boarding. Red Wings go on power play. 

The Bruins killed it off.
