The second goal of three by the Flyers came thanks to Kimmo Timonen. Former Flyer, Andrej Meszaros, scored the first Bruins goal of the afternoon. He was voraciously booed, but once again I don't really see the point, he didn't wanna be traded. If we boo him are we not acknowledging that he's in a better position? Either way, I digress. Chara and Bergeron had the other 2 goals for Boston, and Iginla got his ass whooped by Rinaldo, definitely a high point of the game.
Patrice Bergeron and Claude Giroux put the first goals in for each team to make it 1-1 in the shootout. The shootout went to the fifth round. After Read, Raffl and Vinny failed to score, Reilly Smith who may or may not have been a person I made up/a mite on ice scored the game winner for Boston.
The Flyers put up 52 shots, a season high, but it just wasn't enough. Tuukkaa Rraasskk was solid for the Bbrruuinnss today, leading them to a 4-3 victory.
Side note: Boston fans are too damn nice. It's so easy to hate Ranger fans when they come down for game, but I sat next to Bruin fans at the game/on the subway today and they were so freakin' respectful and full of class. Stop making it so hard to hate you Boston fans!
Next game is Tuesday in St. Louis against the conference leading Blues, so y'know the Flyers should win that one.
