The Flyers and Bruins will open the 2014-15 NHL season in front of a national audience and are two of only four American teams in the NHL to be featured on opening night. It will also be the second time in the las four years that the Flyers opened a season against the Bruins and at Boston. They won the last occasion: 2-1 in 2011.
Although the Flyers have dropped their last two opening games, they will be looking to continue a four-game winning streak in season opening games on the road, winning their last four dating back to the 2007-08 season.
The Flyers will certainly welcome a new year against the B's and will be looking for a little revenge after dropping all three contests last season, going 0-2-1, and allowing the Bruins to score on 50 percent of their power-plays (4-for-8).
Both teams haven't made a large amount of changes, bringing back most of their core players, so Flyers fans will get to see Zdeno Chara, Patric Bergeron and Tuukka Rask between the pipes most likely for all three meetings on the season.
