Brad Stuart scored midway through the third period to give the Detroit Red Wings a 4-3 exhibition victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night. Henrik Zetterberg, Brett Lebda and Cory Emmerton also scored for Stanley Cup champion Detroit (1-0-1). P.J. Axelsson, Jeremy Reich and Martin St. Pierre tallied for Boston (1-1-1).
The Boston Bruins have bought out the final year of veteran right-winger Glen Murray’s contract. The team announced the move Saturday. The 35-year-old Murray, a 16-year veteran, has scored 337 goals with 314 assists in 1,009 regular season games. Murray was in his second stint with the Bruins and was their first-round pick in 1991.
