Bruins Down Flyers, 6-3
Podcast: BruinsCast

Philadelphia -- The Boston Bruins defeated the Philadelphia Flyers, 6-3, in front of a continent wide television audience and 19,209 fans at the Wachovia Center on Monday night in Philadelphia.

Boston forward Petr Tenkrat scored two goals to pace the winners, who have now won six of their last eight games, and B's goalie Tim Thomas stopped 30 shots to earn his 25th win of the campaign and the 40th NHL victory of his career.

The Bruins, who were coming off a huge shootout win over the NHL-best Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night, thanks in large part to Thomas (8 saves in the penalty shot contest) and Tenkrat (game winning tally in the shootout), were able to take an early 1-0 lead against the Flyers.

Phil Kessel feathered a beautiful pass to Marc Savard, who then flipped the puck through the slot, where the red hot Marco Sturm deflected it out of the air and past Philadelphia goalie Antero Niittymaki for the only goal of the first period.

The second period was just a bit more frenetic. Philadelphia's Scottie Upshall scored his fourth of the year to tie the game, 1-1, at just the 43-second mark. Then, his teammate Jeff Carter scored his 10th of the season at 7:08 to put the Flyers in the lead, 2-1.

Boston's P.J. Axelsson scored his ninth of the season to tie the game at 7:42, followed closely by two goals from Petr Tenkrat (No.'s five and six of the season).

The Bruins Paul Mara and the Flyers Mike Richards squared off at 11:19 and received fighting majors for their troubles.

And finally, Philly's Kyle Calder scored the third Flyer goal at 16:12 to make the score 4-3 going into the second break.

But B's forward Brandon Bochenski continued his torrid pace (5 goals, 2 assists in 7 games) for the Bruins and scored his seventh of the year at 3:10.

Thomas was able to nail the game down for the B's with some outstanding goaltending and finish with 30 stops on 33 shots.

Savard added an empty net goal at 19:28 to slam the door shut on Philadelphia and send the Bruins to Toronto with a 2-1-0 record thus far in their six game road trip.
