The Detroit Red Wings did something on Monday afternoon that their baseball neighbors could not do the night before: stop a Boston sports team from making another improbable comeback. Milan Lucic scored with 1:20 left in the third period to get the Bruins within a goal, but the Bruins could not find any more magic to score an equalizer and lost to the Red Wings, 3-2. Jonas Gustavsson, who was a late addition to the Detroit starting lineup due to an injury to goalie Jimmy Howard in warm-ups, had 28 saves to notch his first win of the season.  Tuukka Rask (3-2-0) made 24 saves for the Bruins.  It was the first time this season that Rask had given up more than one goal in a game. Detroit got the scoring started in this early matinee at the 11:33 mark in the first period.  Pavel Datsyuk skated past both Zdeno Chara and Johnny Boychuk, threading the needle to Henrik Zetterberg, who was able to beat Rask with a beautiful shot from a bad angle to the left of the goalie.  That was the fifth goal
