Andreas Athanasiou scored twice in the third period as the Red Wings beat the Boston Bruins 3-1 in Detroit.  

Athanasiou broke a 1-all tie with a power play goal midway through the third and then sealed it with an empty-netter in the final minute.  

Brendan Perlini opened the scoring in the second period for the Wings, who have won two-of-three on the heels of a nine-game skid.  

Jonathan Bernier made 39 saves in the victory.  

Torey Krug scored the lone goal 33-seconds into the third period for Boston, which had its six-game winning streak snapped.

Tuukka Rask allowed two goals on 19 shots in defeat.

The Wings skate at Buffalo Tuesday night.
