A TOUGH DAY
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Bruins got started right away with a goal in the first minute and cruised to an easy win after burying the Flyers with a flurry of early goals.

Benoit Pouliot, Daniel Paille, Zdeno Chara and Milan Lucic scored in the first period to help Boston beat Philadelphia 6-0 Saturday, snapping the Flyers' seven-game winning streak.

The Bruins, who have won four straight tied Philadelphia atop the NHL's Eastern Conference with 43 points apiece. Nathan Horton and Tyler Seguin added late goals to finish the scoring for Boston, which now leads the NHL with 21 victories.

The Bruins' first two goals came so quickly, Flyers coach Peter Laviolette called timeout after Paille's goal 2:50 into the game. That came on the heels of Pouliot's, which was 27 seconds after the opening faceoff.

Whatever benefits the timeout had, they were short-lived. Zdeno Chara blasted a shot through Ilya Bryzgalov's legs about five minutes later, on a power play set up when Philadelphia was called for too many men on the ice.

As if that weren't enough, Lucic scored on a two-man advantage with 2:50 left in the period.

When Horton tipped home another rebound 7:06 into the second period, Laviolette yanked Bryzgalov in favor of Sergei Bobrovsky. Bryzgalov had surrendered five goals on 20 shots. In building a 5-0 lead, the Bruins were 3-for-5 on the power play.

Boston goalie Tim Thomas stopped 31 shots.
The 6-0 shutout loss was the Flyers’ most lopsided shutout loss at home since a 6-0 loss to Tampa Bay on Jan. 28, 2006.
 
Matt Read led all forwards in ice time at 20:35 over the course of 29 shifts.
 
Max Talbot took 20 faceoffs tonight and won 10 of them.

Jaromir Jagr had his three-game point streak snapped today... In his eight games in December, Jagr has recorded at least a point in six of them recording nine points (4G-5A).

Claude Giroux missed his third straight game due to a concussion, while Brayden Schenn missed his sixth straight game due to a mild concussion. 

The teams combined for a total of 26 penalties (Flyers-13, Bruins-13), including seven each in the first period, while combining for 105 penalty minutes (Flyers-43, Bruins-62).

The Flyers had over 13 minutes of power-play time (13:37) going 0-for-6, while the Bruins had over nine minutes of time on the man-advantage (19:18) going 3-for-8 on the day.




 

"I really believe you create your own bounces and we weren't ready off the get go. I think the mindset was more 'lets see if we can stay in this game, lets see how it goes and we'll kind of ease our way into the game.'
- Danny Briere

“I think that there were things that happened in the first 8 minutes where we weren’t as sharp as we’ve been, whether it was line changes or coverage or whatever it may be, and against a team that was here waiting and eyeballing us, they were sharper in those areas."
- Peter Laviolette

"We have to be honest, I don't think we played a really good game today. I think we were real slow, we didn't have energy today and they got every bounce on the right end."
- Kimmo Timonen 
The turning point in today's game came 2:50 seconds into the first period.

Following a Bruins goal just 27 seconds into the game, the second goal of the night coming that quickly created the snowball effect for the Flyers offensive, defensive and overall troubles of the day.

The Bruins would then rattle off three consecutive power-play goals to put the game out of reach, despite the Flyers being given a full five-minute power-play that resulted on the Milan Lucic checking from behind penalty towards the end of the second period.
PIC OF THE NIGHT: The Flyers and Bruins benches look on after a scrum in the corner.
