Bruins clinch top spot in East with 5-2 win
Question of the Day
Emery hopes the Flyers can turn things around quickly.
“The playoffs come fast and if you’re not playing well, normally you see yourselves out pretty quick,” he said. “So we definitely want to be sharp going in.”
Bergeron won a faceoff cleanly back to Boychuk, who fired a slap shot past Emery’s glove for the go-ahead goal. Lucic scored less than a minute later and Chris Kelly added an empty-netter with 21 seconds to play.
The teams were tied 2-2 entering the third period after the Flyers came back twice.
Trailing 1-0, the Flyers snapped a lengthy scoreless stretch on Simmonds’ power-play goal 14:36 into the second when he gained possession of a shot off the back boards and slipped a backhand behind Rask. Philadelphia was shut out in its past two games, and it halted the scoreless stretch at 165:01.
Philadelphia then tied it at 2 when Rosehill collected Michael Raffl’s pass alone at the bottom of the right circle, spun quickly and beat Rask inside the far post at 16:21.
Krejci’s goal 15:56 into the first period gave Boston a 1-0 lead. He scored off the rebound of Loui Eriksson’s shot, collecting the puck and shifting to his right before firing a wrist shot into the open side of the net.
NOTES: Boston F Jarome Iginla was sidelined for the second time in three games, moving Eriksson to the top line. The team said the first one was because of a lower body injury, but didn’t have injury details of this one before the game. “It’s very minor,” Julien said. “More of a maintenance day.” … Bruins D Kevan Miller was also scratched with an unspecified injury. … The Flyers host Buffalo on Sunday before three straight road games. … Boston is off until it opens a two-game road trip at Minnesota on Tuesday. The Bruins are at Winnipeg on Thursday. … Boston F Reilly Smith was presented the team’s Seventh Player Award before the game. The award is voted by the fans for the player that performs “above and beyond” expectations. … It was the Flyers‘ only regular season visit to Boston.
