DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings used a balanced offence to take care of the Boston Bruins. Niklas Kronwall, Henrik Zetterberg, Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar each had a goal and an assist in the Red Wings 6-1 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night. "We work pretty hard most nights. Today we were rewarded. We had puck luck and got some energy and got going. I think that was the biggest thing," Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. "Weve played lots of good games this year; we havent won lots of games. Thats the fact, because we never score. The pucks been going in. I thought we built off what weve been building and it was a positive for the guys." The six goals are the most the team has scored in a game this season. Justin Abdelkader and Drew Miller and also scored for Detroit. Johan Franzen had three assists, Joakim Andersson two assists and Jonas Gustavsson made 16 saves. "We really went after it tonight. It felt like we skated a lot, we played the kind of game we want to play. When we do that were a really good team," said Gustavsson, who ran his season record to 6-0-1. "I dont know if it was our team that was really good or Boston had an off night. If we play like this we know were going to win a lot of games. I feel like last few weeks weve been going in the right direction. Hopefully we have some more gears. I think we have, because we have a young group. Really good team effort." Jarome Iginla scored for Boston and Tuukka Rask stopped 22 shots. "Everything we did tonight was just a disaster," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. Abdelkader opened the scoring at 11:49 of the first period when he put in a loose puck from the bottom of the left circle off the rush, 11 seconds after Detroit killed off a high-sticking penalty to Franzen. It was Abdelkaders third goal of the season. The Red Wings scored three goals in less than four minutes in the second period. Tatar made it 2-0 at 6:05 of the second period. He scored on a wraparound after carrying the puck from just outside the Red Wings blue line and falling down and getting back up -- while maintaining control of the puck -- in the right circle. It was Tatars third goal. Zetterberg made it 3-0 at 8:47 when he scored from the left circle for his 11th goal. Kronwall scored on the power play, just 1:14 later. "It was nice. Our second periods havent been our best and tonight we found a way," Zetterberg said. "Specialty teams were good, our PK and we scored a goal on the power play." This is the way Rask saw it: "In the second period we didnt create much and didnt give them much but they scored three goals." Miller scored his second goal of the season at 8:38 of the third period and Nyquist got his third goal of the season with 2:53 remaining in the game. Iginla spoiled Gustavsson shutout attempt with 2:25 left. NOTES: Detroit C Pavel Datsyuk missed his second game after being elbowed in the face by Ottawa D Jared Cowen on Saturday night.

MONTREAL -- The young guns are hot for the Montreal Canadiens to start the NHL season. Centre Lars Eller had a goal and an assist as his line with Brendan Gallagher and Alex Galchenyuk clicked twice in the Canadiens 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night. The 24-year-old Eller has five points in Montreals opening two games of the campaign, while Gallagher has two goals and Galchenyuk has four assists. "I got off on the right foot," said Eller. "The whole line has been playing great. Were creating space for each other. If you create chances, the goals are going to come." Gallagher picked up his second goal of the season and veteran Brian Gionta and his linemate Rene Bourque added goals for Montreal (1-1-0). The Eller line produced all three goals in a season-opening 4-3 loss to Toronto on Tuesday. Vincent Lecavalier, the Montreal native who was booed each time he touched the puck, scored for Philadelphia (0-2-0), which plays again Sunday night at Carolina. Many in the Bell Centre crowd of 21,273 were on Lecavaliers case because he passed up Montreal to sign as a free agent with the Flyers this summer. The booing didnt seem to faze him. "I just wanted to help my team win the game," he said. "Its always special playing in Montreal and it was the same thing tonight." Gallagher and Galchenyuk are each coming off impressive rookie seasons and have picked a good time to get hot. The teams top line is struggling with winger Max Pacioretty out with a wrist injury. Now the youngsters are getting more ice time, especially on the power play, than they got last season. "Thats our strength -- the depth of our scoring," said Gionta, who added that Eller is "a young kid who has grown. You can see how hes matured as a player." Special teams were the big factor in a game dotted with minor penalties. Montreal went 2-for-9 with the man advantage and the Flyers were 1-for-5. "Its tough to score when youre in the box," said Flyers forward Max Talbot. "You have to look at discipline. Wed start getting momentum and then wed have to kill two minutes, so we have to clean that up." Montreal had a 34-23 shot advantage. Philadelphiia, which was beaten 3-1 by Toronto in its season opener on Wednesday night, has not scored an even-strength goal in its first two games.dddddddddddd Tomas Plekanec won a faceoff in the Flyers zone and Bourque slipped a pass across the crease for Gionta to bang past Ray Emery for the opening goal 8:10 into the game. The Flyers were victims of a quick whistle when Price lost a puck at his feet and Matt Read knocked it in, but it was ruled no goal. Coach Peter Laviolette said it was not a major factor in the game because the score was still only 1-0 going into the third period and the Flyers still had a chance to win. "After they scored at the start of the third, we lost our composure a bit," he said. "Were not going to win a lot of hockey games if we go to the box as much as we did tonight." Eller backhanded in the rebound of a Gallagher shot that missed the net only 12 seconds into the third frame. A P.K. Subban shot looked to have gone in during a third-period 5-on-3 but video review found it went in the side netting. Only 18 seconds after play resumed, Subban faked a shot and passed to Galchenyuk, who slipped it to Gallagher for a 3-0 lead at the 5:00 mark. Lecavalier was at the side of the net to lift the rebound of Mark Streits point shot past Carey Price on a power play 9:13 into the third. Bourque added a power-play goal in the final minute. It was Daniel Brieres first game against Philadelphia since the Flyers bought him out, but it was a quiet night for the veteran forward, other than taking two minor penalties. Next up for the Canadiens is a western road trip to Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Winnipeg beginning Wednesday. Notes: Pacioretty, who jammed a wrist in the season opener, did not dress.
