The Flyers scored their first goal after their killed off a penalty to Mike Richards [1], who came out of the penalty box to stand in front of Tuukka Rask [2].

Ryan Parent blasted a slap shot through a heavy screen to make it, 2-1, Bruins at 7:38 of the period.

Boston came right back though and scored on the power play when Braydon Coburn blocked a shot from Johnny Boychuk [3] from the right point. The carom came out to Miroslav Satan at the top of the right circle. His shot beat Brian Boucher [4] to re-establish the two-goal advantage at 11:43.

But the Flyers responded with the first power play goal against the Bruins in these playoffs after 21 consecutive kills as Chris Pronger [5] scored his third of the playoffs on a blast from the right point at 15:48.

The Flyers outshot the Bruins, 11-6, in the second.
