First up we have a game recap then below are the extended game highlights, Alex Nedeljkovic then Dylan Larkin and Jeff Blashill in one video.
from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
Playing a patient and disciplined road game, and getting continued top-notch goaltending from Alex Nedeljkovic, who tied a career-high with 41 saves, the Wings went into Boston and defeated the Bruins, 2-1....
s good as Nedeljkovic was again, coach Jeff Blashill felt it was an impressive team victory.
"We played good defensively and we gave up shots, but we didn't give up a whole lot of chances," Blashill said. "When we did, he (Nedeljkovic) did a good job and that's the type of game that can really help goalies push their save percentages high because it's a decent amount of shots but decent amount from the outside.
"For me, this would be more of a team defense success than just one player. Certainly Alex did a good job and against St. Louis he stole us a game, but that wasn't the case (Tuesday). We played real good defensively, and it allows you to go on the road and quell momentum like we've talked about."
Boston had won 11 of the previous 12 games between the teams at TD Garden, so this was a notable victory.
"It's a tough building to play in, it's a momentum building," forward Dylan Larkin said. "When you take penalties and they go on the power play, they move the puck around well and it's hard, but we did a great job of staying disciplined early and we played a great road game and got great goaltending."
