The 2014 NHL playoffs live stream and TV coverage continues Tuesday with four games on the schedule, including Game 3 between the Detroit Red Wings and Boston Bruins. After the Red Wings stole Game 1 last Friday night from Boston, the Bruins bounced back in Game 2 with a 4-1 win, tying the best-of-seven series 1-1. With only 2 goals in the first two games, Detroit needs to step up the offense in Game 3 if they want to pull off the series upset of the No. 1 seeded Bruins. The latest Wings-Bruins NHL playoff live stream results could go a long way in who wins this series.
According to a Sportsline report on April 22, Game 3 will see the action move from Beantown to Motown as the Red Wings look to take a 2-1 series lead in front of the home town crowd. Detroit will be without Daniel Alfredsson in tonight's key Game 3 at Joe Louis Arena. Alfredsson has been dealing with an on and off again injury throughout the year being described only as an "upper-body" injury.
This series may be tied at one game a piece, but Red Wings coach Mike Babcock feels Detroit's effort was terrible in Game 2. While Babcock does give credit to Boston for the win, he also points out that Detroit's lackluster and sloppy play contributed to their Game 2 loss. Babcock knows his team can compete with the President Cup winning Bruins, but if they play as bad as they did in Game 2, this could become a short series.
"I thought we were ineffective, period," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "They were engaged. They won the battles. They were quick. We were slow."
The home crowd at Joe Louis Arena should be electric tonight, hopefully motivating Detroit to keep up their winning ways against Boston. The Wings won 3 out of 4 in the regular season and 8 of the last 9 overall vs. the Bruins, but none of that will be remembered if they lose the series.
Las Vegas odds makers have Detroit as a slight favorite in tonight's game at -120 with over/under number set at 5. Fans can catch all of the action on FSN Detroit and NBC Sports Network on the television side, while the game will also be streaming live online through NBC Sports Extra. The puck is scheduled to drop at 7:30 p.m. ET.
