DETROIT -- The Boston Bruins took full advantage of Detroits mistakes, and their stellar goaltenders flawless performance. Dougie Hamilton and Jordan Caron scored in the first period after the Red Wings had miscues on the ice and Tuukka Rask finished with a 23-save shutout, giving Boston a 3-0 win over the Red Wings and a 2-1 series lead in their first-round series. Patrice Bergeron added an empty-net goal late in the third period, sealing the lopsided game. The Presidents Trophy-winning Bruins are ahead in the series for the first time. And, it seems like a commanding lead the way they have played the past two games. "I would never say that," Boston coach Claude Julien insisted. Detroit has to win Game 4 on Thursday night to avoid facing elimination when the series shifts back to Boston. Jimmy Howard made 31 saves for the Red Wings, who needed him to make what appeared to be a routine stop midway through the first period on the first goal. Hamiltons wrist shot from the top of the right circle beat Howards glove on a power play after Detroit had too many men on the ice. "That goal cant go in," Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. "They were better than us all night, but we gave them two goals." The Red Wings didnt have enough players in position to stop the second goal. After a poorly timed line change, Caron was all alone in front of the net and scored off a rebound created by Shawn Thorntons shot. "Once I turned around and got to the blue line, I saw there was a lot of ice," Thornton said. Detroit had a 5-on-3 power play for 35 seconds midway through the second period and could not take advantage. The Red Wings had perhaps their best chance early in the third period, but Rask made a sprawling stop to get his glove on Justin Abdelkaders shot. "Just tried to track it down and leave the rebound to someone else," Rask said. Detroit did not have many other opportunities against Rask, who ended up with his fourth career playoff shutout. The Red Wings had a power play midway through the third period and got only one shot to Rask, whose teammates prevented the puck from getting to him by putting their bodies and sticks in the way all night. "Thats part of our defensive game," Julien said. "Guys arent afraid to block shots." The Red Wings pulled Howard to have an extra skater late in the game, but failed to dump the puck deep into the Boston end. Bergeron made a long shot into an empty net with 1:59 left to make it 3-0. Since the Red Wings won Game 1 on Pavel Datsyuks goal late in the third period, they have been outscored 7-1. "It hasnt been easy, lets not kid ourselves," Julien said. "Weve been fortunate enough in the last two games to get leads. Were not going to talk about a comfortable situation because until you win that fourth game, it never is." Detroit did not have one of its top forwards, Daniel Alfredsson, because of a back ailment and is still without two key players, captain Henrik Zetterberg and defenceman Jonathan Ericsson, because of injuries. Even with all three of those players and a 100 per cent healthy Pavel Datsyuk, who is playing with a banged-up left knee, Boston simply might be too tough to beat. The defending Eastern Conference and 2011 Stanley Cup champions are big, strong, fast and talented. Boston proved that during the regular season, leading the NHL with 117 points, and has shown how dominant it can be after losing the closely contested Game 1. "Theyve responded since then and weve had no push back in the last two games," Babcock lamented.

BALTIMORE -- A winning season was never an objective for the Baltimore Orioles. Reaching the playoffs was all that mattered. So, after the Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 9-5 on Wednesday night to clinch a winning record for the second straight year, the players saw absolutely no reason to celebrate the moment. "We didnt make it to the playoffs. That was our goal," shortstop J.J. Hardy said. "I dont know how much we look at it as, All right, we got a winning season. Hurrah, hooray." The Orioles were eliminated from the wild-card hunt one night earlier, so manager Buck Showalter rested Adam Jones, Brian Roberts and Matt Wieters and moved Chris Davis from first base to designated hitter. Jonathan Schoop, a 21-year-old prospect making his major league debut, homered, singled, walked and scored three runs. Now that, Hardy contended, was exciting. "I think thats more important right now, seeing Schoopy go out there and do what he did," Hardy said. "Its pretty special, fun to be a part of." Perhaps that was the biggest benefit from playing a game that did not have playoff ramifications. With a lineup that included Jason Pridie, Schoop and Steve Clevenger, the Orioles ended a streak of 21 straight games of scoring five runs or fewer. Schoop couldnt contain his excitement, even after receiving two post-game pies to the face, an Orioles tradition. "My major league debut, it was good," he said. "Its the first experience and Im never going to forget." Ryan Flaherty hit a pair of two-run homers, Steve Pearce hit a solo shot and Davis doubled in a run to increase his RBI total to 137 -- tied with Detroits Miguel Cabrera for the major league lead. Flaherty connected in the third and eighth innings. It was his second career two-homer game, both of which came against Toronto this season. And so, after a run of 14 straight losing seasons, Baltimore (82-76) is assured of having a winning record in successive years for the first time since 1996-97. "Were disappointed, but one of the most impressive things in team sports to me is people who can consistently be competitive and win," Showalter said. "Its hard to do." Munenori Kawasaki and Josh Thole both had four hits for the lastt-place Blue Jays, who stranded 14 and went 4 for 22 with runners in scoring position.dddddddddddd "We kept getting guys on base. We just couldnt get them in enough," manager John Gibbons said. "You run into those. Thats where we could have used that home run. They got a couple of homers. We could have used one. Might have been a different story." T.J. McFarland (3-1) pitched one inning of relief for Baltimore and Jason Hammel worked 2 1-3 innings for his first save since 2011. Starter Bud Norris allowed three runs and seven hits over four innings and needed 96 pitches to do so. Esmil Rogers (5-9) yielded six runs and eight hits -- including two homers -- in 4 1-3 innings for Toronto. "You make a couple of mistakes, you pay at this level," Rogers said. "It doesnt matter who you are. It doesnt matter if youre a baby. If you got a mistake, youre going to pay." An RBI single by Jose Reyes put the Blue Jays up 1-0 in the second inning, and Toronto added two runs in the third when Anthony Gose tripled in a run and scored on a single by Thole. Baltimore closed to 3-2 in the third. After Schoop singled in first major league at-bat, Flaherty homered to right. One inning later, Pearce homered to tie it. The Orioles used an RBI single by Nick Markakis, a run-scoring double by Davis and an RBI groundout by Pridie to go ahead 6-3 in the fifth. In the sixth, Schoop ripped a 2-1 pitch from Kyle Drabek over the wall in centre field. Two batters later, Drabek was struck in the right ankle by a line drive and left the game. X-rays were negative. NOTES: Toronto GM Alex Anthopoulos said his priority during the off-season will be to bolster the starting rotation. "Thats the most glaring hole on this team. We can go across the diamond, but if we dont get improvement on the mound it isnt going to matter," he said. ... Baltimore placed 3B Manny Machado on the 60-day DL to make room for Pridie, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A Norfolk. Pridie is the 54th player to suit up for the Orioles, tying the 1955 team for most in a season. ... Baltimores first nine hits were by nine different players. ... The winner of Thursdays game wins the season series. Each team has nine victories. 23:40ET 25-09-13 ' ' '
