Bruins Sweep Flyers Behind 5-1 Win in Game 4

That’s it. There will be no comeback this year and there will be no more hockey in Philadelphia this year.

There isn’t much to say here, as the Flyers were once again unable to generate much, if any, offense. They had more energy than they did in Game 3, but only slightly more. They had better goaltending than they did in Game 3, but only slightly better. In the end, they came up far short once again.

To start the third, the Flyers lost a faceoff and saw the puck squirt out to Johnny Boychuk. He slapped one past Sergei Bobrovsky, high on the glove side to give the Bruins a 2-1 lead. It was all they would need as the Flyers would put up barely a whimper.

There will be plenty to say later, but in a season with such high expectations, a 4-7 playoff record cannot be seen as anything other than a disaster.
