What a game!
Let’s get to it.
Wayne Simmonds was looking fresh.
And Claude Giroux was looking to rise to the occasion on Easter Sunday.
The Flyers got an early chance with Scott Laughton redirecting Travis Sanheim’s shot on net, but he was denied.
The Bruins got a great chance in front, but Petr Mrazek made an unbelievable glove save.
What a save.
Then the Flyers went down the other way and scored.
G-Sus has risen!
Travis Konecny showed off some of his speed to disrupt a rush.
Nolan Patrick made a fantastic defensive play to steal the puck.
The Flyers led 1-0 after one period of play.
Konecny got things going early in the second period.
He dangled around the defense for a gorgeous goal!
What a play.
He completely embarrassed Patrice Bergeron.
Celly hard, TK.
Gostisbehere then found Konecny for a breakaway, and he drew a slash as he was denied.
He made another great defensive play to spring Konecny and Giroux on a 2-on-0, but they couldn’t get a shot off.
And Boston scored at the other end after a turnover by Radko Gudas.
Gudas turned the puck over again in front of the net, but luckily the Bruins couldn’t capitalize.
Brad Marchand cross-checked Andrew MacDonald in the face, negating a Bruins’ power play.
The Flyers led 2-1 after two periods of play.
They struck first in the third period as well.
The sauce and finish.
A great passing play all around.
But the Bruins got it back again as David Pastrnak’s shot deflected off Andrew MacDonald and in to make it 3-2.
Then the Bruins tied it in the final seconds, and we headed to overtime.
After a few boring minutes, Claude Giroux put an end to it with an exclamation mark.
G-sus rises on Easter!
Flyers win, 4-3!
