Fabbri scores twice in 1st game, Red Wings beat Bruins

Detroit Red Wings' Robby Fabbri scores twice in team debut vs. Bruins

Detroit Red Wings' Robby Fabbri scores twice in team debut vs. Bruins

The two goals - both on the power play - helped lead the Wings to a 4-2 win over the Boston Bruins on the team's Hockey Fights Cancer Night in Detroit.

Starting the season with a 4-12-1 record, the Detroit Red Wings needed to find a way to stop the bleeding and ignite a spark, and most importantly, some offense.

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.

Fabbri had scored only one goal in nine games this season with the St. Louis Blues. They are 1-11-1 in their last 13 games. Tuukka Rask made 28 saves.

David Pastrnak got an assist to stretch his career-best point streak to 14 games (15-16-31) for the Bruins.

Krug's power-play goal with 2:08 left in the second period pulled the Bruins to 3-2. He beat Bernier on a screened wrist shot from the point for Krug's third goal.

Red Wings: 1-8-1, averaging 1.7 goals, 3.2 assists, 3.4 penalties and 7.3 penalty minutes while giving up 3.8 goals per game with a.882 save percentage.

The Bruins had several good chances to tie it before Mantha's empty-net goal sealed the outcome with 1:28 remaining. Detroit is now the last in the league in goals per game (2.06) and has been outscored 23-8 in its last five games, while also losing its last four games, falling in each by at least four goals.

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. Larkin made it 1-1 at 2:41 when his wraparound attempt went in off Patrice Bergeron's skate. Detroit D Mike Green returned after missing three games with an illness.

NOTE: Boston F Jake DeBrusk did not play because of a lower-body injury and was replaced in the lineup by F Peter Cehlarik, who was recalled from AHL Providence on Thursday.
