Besides the bad reffing in the Bruins-Red Wings game, there were lots of goals (11 in total) but the Bruins couldn't hold onto their leads (twice) and wound up losing 6-5 to the Red Wings. Detroit, you should make sure Mike Leggo and Francis Charron ref all of your games, you may go undefeated if they do. Patrice Bergeron was out of the line up against vs the Red Wings, hopefully he will be back soon.
