Bruins even series with Red Wings

Boston, MA ( - The Boston Bruins' first goal of the 2014 playoffs came from an unlikely source.

Justin Florek snapped top-seeded Boston's 67-minute scoreless drought in the first period Sunday after Jimmy Howard came out of the net to clear a puck and the Bruins scored three more goals for a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals.

The Bruins, after losing 1-0 on Friday, evened the best-of-seven series going into Game 3 on Tuesday in Detroit.

Reilly Smith, Milan Lucic and Zdeno Chara also scored and Tuukka Rask made 34 saves, letting in just the one goal after a shot hit off Detroit center Luke Glendening's glove in the crease.
