Boston Routes Philadelphia…by Momma Gouche

Whether it was the fault of goaltending or the brilliant play of the Bruins, the game between the Boston Bruin and the Philadelphia on Saturday night was not what was expected from a team that had posted such high numbers in the regular season.  Right from Boston’s David Krejci’s  first goal at 1:52 of the first … through Nathan Horton’s goal at 11:02 and Mark Recchi’s tally at 2;34 of the second … David Kreici’s goal at 15:26  and Boston’s goal by Brad Marchand at 17;14, there was no look of the old Flyers of yore. Danny Briere managed to put Philadelphia on the score board at 11:02 of the first and James van Riemsdyk scores at 7:30 of the second but these efforts were overshadowed by the surge of the Bruins, that put them ahead 5-2 at the and of the second period. This game was virtually over. Brian Boucher is replaced by Serge Bobrovsky. However, it is questionable as to whether it was the fault of goaltender or lack of support from the team. But the Flyers are not ready to give up, as Mike Richards cuts the lead to 2 at 13:02 of the third on a power play. Brad Marchand gets his second goal 14:59 and Gregory Campbell finishes the scoring at 17:39. The score ends 7-3 for Boston. But the Philadelphia Flyers are a rough and tough bunch … so don’t expect them to lay down after this humiliating encounter. They will be back in the fray with a new vigor.
