DETROIT (AP) — Zach Trotman scored his first career NHL goal with 2:08 remaining to lift the Boston Bruins to a 3-2 victory the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night.

Trotman’s wrist shot got between Petr Mrazek’s glove and jersey and trickled past the goal line to give Boston its fourth straight win. Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson also had goals for the Bruins, who got 35 saves from Tuukka Rask.

Luke Glendening and Stephen Weiss had goals, and Mrazek made 22 saves for Detroit, which fell into a third-place tie with the Bruins in the Atlantic Division. Boston, which won the season series 3-1-1, will have the tiebreaker if the teams remain even.

Detroit’s Drew Miller started 48 hours after needing more than 50 stitches to close a pair of deep cuts near his left eye. He was injured when he collided with Mark Stone’s skate during Tuesday’s shootout loss to Ottawa.
