BOSTON, Oct. 14 (UPI) -- Detroit's Stephen Weiss and Danny Cleary had goals within a 2:20 span of the second period Monday and the Red Wings defeated the Boston Bruins 3-2.

Weiss, who has two goals this season, broke a 1-1 tie with a wrist shot past Boston goalie Tuukka Rask 8:21 into the second period. Cleary came through with his first goal of the season on a quick blast past Rask at the 10:41 mark.

Henrik Zetterberg notched his fifth goal of the season midway through the first period to open the Red Wings' scoring but Loui Eriksson answered for Boston less than 3 minutes later.

The goals by Weiss and Cleary came while Detroit goaltender Jonas Gustavsson was stopping 11 shots in the second period. Gustavsson was a late substitute for Jimmy Howard, who missed the game because of a hand injury. Gustavsson had 29 saves overall.

Milan Lucic score with 1:20 left in regular to pull the Bruins within one goal. It was his third goal of the season.
