Boston, MA – With a shift of the hips and quick wrist shot by game winning streak came to an end.
Bertuzzi scored in the final round of the shootout to lift Detroit to a 3-2 victory over Boston and hand the Bruins their first loss since October 29.
He allowed a goal to Nathan Horton to start the third round, evening the shootout at 1-1, but Bertuzzi secured the victory. He came in wide from the right wing and shifted his hips as he crossed through the slot, as though to attempt a backhand shot. But he quickly shifted back to the forehand, and his wrister deflected off Tuukka Rask and into the net.
