The Bruins managed to win yet another game thanks to a tremendous effort in the third period.
Michael Ryder, David Krecji, and Dennis Wideman all scored for the Bruins, who now stand at an NHL-best 38-8-6. The Bruins were outshot 14-7 in the first period, but outshot the Flyers 26-12 the rest of the way to help them get the 3-1 victory.
Goaltender Tim Thomas was stingy yet again for the B’s stopping 25 of 26 shots. He was very solid in the first period, when he faced most of Philadelphia’s pressure. He turned away all 14 shots he faced in the first to keep the Bruins tied.
Krejci scored the game-winner 5:48 into the third period, and Wideman added his 12th goal of the year just 35 seconds later to put the game out of reach.
The Bruins next head to Ottowa to face the Senators Thursday night.
