As the Philadelphia Flyers come to Boston having played the night before against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the B’s looked to end a two game skid. It wouldn’t start great as the Flyers were able to score late in the second half of the first period, becoming the first road team to score first on TD Garden Ice this season. Before the period was up the Flyers would score their second goal of the night, making the Bruins look like the team with tired legs.
The Bruins wouldn’t get on the board until the third period when Danton Heinen scored an incredible goal while spinning in front of the net.
The goal seemed to finally wake the Bruins up as they really picked up their overall game in the third period. As the Flyers started to feel the effects of back-to-back games, Brad Marchand would score to tie the game at two, with less than eight minutes to go in the game.
With time winding down, the B’s got a late power play and after a fury of chances, they could not break through Carter Hart, the Flyers goalie. The time would eventually run out and the game would go to overtime tied at 2. In overtime, both teams had many chances as the excitement of 3-on-3 hockey never disappoints. The game would eventually move on to a shootout, which Philly would get the better of Jaroslav Halak and win the game.
The Bruins have now lost three games in a row, but took a point from this loss. They will try and bounce back from the tough loss on Tuesday night at 7pm on home ice vs the Florida Panthers.
