Bruins Come Back To Beat Flyers In Wild 7-5 Affair In Boston

Boston, MA (Sports Network) – Steven Kampfer notched the game winner late in regulation as the Boston Bruins outlasted the Philadelphia Flyers, 7-5, in a wild, playoff-like contest at TD Garden.

Mark Recchi, Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron and Gregory Campbell all posted a goal and one assist for the Bruins, who won their third straight game and moved four points ahead of idle Montreal in the Northeast Division (55-51).

Tim Thomas was shelled for five goals on 35 shots but improved to 20-4-6 on the year for Boston, which tallied five times in the third period.

Danny Briere and Nikolay Zherdev notched a goal and a helper each for the Flyers, whose four-game win streak was halted, but remained atop the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference with 59 points, one better than idle Pittsburgh.

Scott Hartnell, Jeff Carter and Sean O’Donnell also scored but Brian Boucher allowed six goals on 36 shots in defeat.
