Flyers at Bruins, Game Three: Bruins Lead 4-1 After Two Periods

Another pitiful twenty minutes are in the books, and the Flyers now trail 4-1. Brian Boucher has been pulled from the game in favor of Sergei Bobrovsky, but the first three goals were not his fault. The fourth one, however, was all on him.

After not generating much at all for the first half of the second, Danny Syvret pinched into the offensive zone on a 4-on-3 and found himself with an opportunity to shoot from the faceoff dot. He decided to pass across the slot, which was a bad idea. Boston intercepted and went the other way on a 3-on-2, which would eventually be buried by Daniel Paille.

A little more than ninety seconds later, Nathan Horton would go in on Kimmo Timonen one-on-one, and Timonen would force him wide. Boucher overplayed it, dropping into the butterfly too early and having to go right to left. As he tried to move, Horton slid the puck through his five hole for the demoralizing 4-0 lead. After that Sergei Bobrovsky came on in relief.

The Flyers did finally get on the board when Andrej Meszaros roofed a feed from Darroll Powe above Tim Thomas’ shoulder, cutting the lead to 4-1. There was little celebration, however, as the Flyers have a long way to go. It isn’t over, but it doesn’t look good.
