Bruins can't find the back of the net in Detroit

The Bruins' couldn't seem to get anything going offensively yet again tonight as Chris Osgood and the Detroit Red Wings shutout the B's 2-0.

Detroit scored on the power play with 5:39 left in the first period to open the scoring. Marco Sturm was sent off at 14:19 for a blatant hook. On the ensuing face-off, Henrik Zetterberg's shot from left circle just two seconds into the power play gave the Wings the 1-0 lead.

The Red Wings made it 2-0 3:22 later when Pavel Datsuyk skated right down the middle of the ice splitting the Bruins' defense and left a drop pass for Tomas Holmstrom, who beat a sprawling Tim Thomas



Notes:

- Chris Osgood made 29 saves to record his 50th career shutout.

- Tim Thomas made 24 saves in the loss.
