Bryzgalov has won seven straight games, compiling a 0.99 goals-against average and .964 save percentage during that stretch. He also established a new franchise record by going 249 minutes and 43 seconds without surrendering a goal, coming within seven minutes of posting four consecutive shutouts.

Riding their top goalie's hot hand, the Flyers have won seven of their last eight, outscoring opponents 23-11 during that span.

Boston, meanwhile, has struggled. The Bruins have lost four straight while allowing an average of 5.25 goals per game.

The two Eastern Conference foes have played three times already this season. Philadelphia won the first meeting, a 2-1 decision on opening night, but the Bruins have taken the last two.
