It was a chippy game with a lot of scrums and hits after the whistle, as well as a fight between Vladislav Namestnikov and Brad Marchand.
The Boston Bruins responded well to the physicality, the Detroit Red Wings did not.
That was just one of the contributing factors to the Bruins’ 5-1 victory Sunday afternoon at Little Caesars Arena, but one Detroit captain Dylan Larkin emphasized.
“It was a physical game tonight, it was physical against Washington (3-1 loss Friday),” Larkin said. “I really felt when it’s gotten physical, we’ve been mediocre. We need to have better pushback when it gets physical.”
Coach Jeff Blashill agreed.
“We can push back harder for sure,” Blashill said. “They want to bully you. That’s how they are, and I didn’t think we fought hard enough for ourselves.”
