The Bruins got it done early on in the second period, but the Flyers finished the period stronger and take a 3-2 period into the third.
Patrice Bergeron  scored his sixth goal in his last four games when he redirected a Steven Kampfer shot from the point past Brian Boucher  just 45 seconds into the period. The Bruins continued their offensive pressure early on the period, with Boucher coming up big for the Flyers.
A turnover caused by Zdeno Chara  led to Nikolay Zherdev’s 14th goal of the season. Chara’s shot was blocked and sent up ahead to Zherdev in the neutral zone, and the Russian winger tied it up on a breakaway. Jeff Carter  made it 3-2 with 36 seconds left in the period.
Tim Thomas  made 10 saves for the B’s in the the second, most notably making a huge stop on a Scott Hartnell breakaway in halfway through the period. He was also the beneficiary of a couple of pucks clanking off posts.
