Detroit Red Wings forward Filip Zadina gave his team a 1–0 lead early in his team’s game against the Boston Bruins on Tuesday.
Zadina started Tuesday’s contest alongside veterans Sam Gagner and Carter Rowney on Detroit’s fourth line. Perhaps the demotion gave Zadina an extra spark when he broke in all alone against Bruins goaltender Linus Ullmark and sent a backhand shot into the top-right corner of the net.
Pius Suter picked up the lone assist of Zadina’s fourth goal of the season. Here’s the video of the play, as posted to Twitter by the verified Detroit Red Wings account:
