(NHL playoffs) Bruins lead Red Wings 2-1 in series
(04-23 11:24)

Tuukka Rask finished with a 23-save shutout to give the Bruins a 2-1 playoff series lead, beating the Red Wings 3-0.
Dougie Hamilton and Jordan Caron scored in the first period, and Patrice Bergeron added an empty-net goal late in the game. The Presidents' Trophy-winning Bruins are ahead for the first time in the opening-round series. And, it seems like a commanding lead the way Boston has played the past two games.
Detroit has to win Game 4 on Thursday night to avoid facing elimination when the series shifts back to Boston.
