Brad Marchand, Filip Hronek Drop The Gloves After Hit Behind The Net
- Brad Marchand tried to wake his team up Friday night.
- Down 3-1 in the second period, the Boston Bruins winger laid of a big hit on Red Wings’ Filip Hronek behind Detroit’s net. The two eventually got behind play of the game and dropped the gloves with one another.
- Hronek and Marchand exchanged a few jabs before Marchand brought Hronek down to the ice first. Both were assessed five-minute majors.

Fabbri scores twice in Red Wings debut to defeat Bruins
- Robby Fabbri scored twice in his Detroit Red Wings debut, and goalie Jonathan Bernier had two assists in a 4-2 win against the Boston Bruins at Little Caesars Arena on Friday.
“It definitely helps my confidence to come in and help the boys win,” said Fabbri, who was acquired from the St. Louis Blues in a trade for forward Jacob de la Rose on Wednesday. “That’s what I’m going to be trying to do here.”
- Dylan Larkin and Anthony Mantha scored for Detroit (5-12-1), which ended a four-game losing streak.
- The Red Wings had gone 1-11-1 since starting the season with three wins in four games.
- Bernier, who made 26 saves, was the first Red Wings goalie to have two assists in a game since Jim Rutherford did it on Feb. 18, 1979, in a 6-2 victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
- Tuukka Rask of the Bruins was the last NHL goalie to have two assists in a game, in a 4-1 win at the Winnipeg Jets on Oct. 17, 2016.
“Someone just told me I have seven (career) points now, which I didn’t even know,” said Bernier, who had never had two assists in a season.
- David Krejci and Torey Krug scored, and David Pastrnak had an assist to extend his point streak to an NHL career-best 14 games for Boston (11-3-2).
- The Bruins have lost two straight after a six-game winning streak. Rask made 28 saves.
“We just didn’t have enough energy tonight,” Krug said. “It showed up late in the second, but we couldn’t get over the hump.”
