Detroit aims to end its four-game losing streak when the Red Wings take on Boston.

The Red Wings (5-12-1) competed harder than they have in several recent games, playing with an edge in one of their most physical performances of the season.

Slotting in on the first power-play unit, he was able to connect with Todd Bertuzzi and Anthony Mantha bang-bang play and score one-time feed from Bertuzzi late in the first period to make it 2-1 for the Red Wings.

David Krejci had a goal and an assist and Torey Krug also scored for Boston, which lost its second straight.

Acquired in a player-for-player swap with the defending Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues for Jacob de la Rose two nights ago, Fabbri scored twice in his first game with his new team. The Red Wings had gone 1-11-1 since starting the season with three wins in four games. Tuukka Rask made 28 saves.

Pastrnak has recorded 30 total points while scoring 15 goals and totaling 15 assists for the Bruins. Andreas Athanasiou has collected one goal and five assists over the last 10 games for Detroit.

The Bruins had several good chances to tie it before Mantha's empty-net goal sealed the outcome with 1:28 remaining. He beat Bernier on a screened wrist shot from the point for Krug's third goal.

The game got off to an inauspicious start for Bernier and the Red Wings when David Krejci scored on Boston's first shot of the game at 1:09.

The fact that the goals came on the power play were an added bonus for Detroit, as the Red Wings were ranked No. 27 in the National Hockey League coming into the night with a 12.7 percent success rate with the man-advantage heading into the contest.

His second goal came at the beginning of the second period and again, on the man advantage and on yet another one-timer from Bertuzzi.

Fabbri made it 2-1 at 11:49, slapping home Bertuzzi's pass his for second goal of the season.
