Krejci and Thomas Give Boston 3-2 OT Win, 2-0 Series Lead

David Krejci scored 14:01 into overtime to give the Bruins a 3-2 win and a 2-0 series lead.  The play had to be reviewed as the call on the ice was no goal, but it didn't take long to see the puck clearly went in.

It was a disappointing end as the puck came in on Brian Boucher, who passed to Braydon Coburn. To start the breakout, Coburn threw the puck behind the net to Kimmo Timonen, and Danny Briere circled down and up the ice preparing to go back on the attack. But Timonen missed the pass and Briere's man continued on the forecheck. Nathan Horton collected the puck along the boards and fired a pass to Krejci, who roofed it over Brian Boucher's shoulder.

The overtime period was largely dominated by the Flyers, though there was a good bit of back and forth play. The Flyers recorded 10 shots on goal in overtime alone, and 54 total for the game. But Tim Thomas stopped the last 46 shots he faced, many of them spectacular.

It was a demoralizing loss, as the Flyers recorded more than enough quality scoring chances but just couldn't put them past Thomas. They had multiple odd-man rushes, multiple mini-breakaways, and more than a couple posts. But one puck that bounces over Timonen's stick puts them in a difficult hole.
