Flyers Lose Fourth Straight

The Flyers finally ended their scoring drought that spanned over two games. They couldn't overcome their losing skid though.

The Flyers lost their fourth straight game on Saturday, a 5-2 loss at the hands of the Bruins, who started the Flyers losing streak last weekend.

It was a score that didn't represent the type of game starting goalie Ray Emery had. Emery made 37 saves on 41 shots as the Flyers were out-shot 42-26.

Boston went up 1-0 in the first period on David Krejci's 17th of the season. The Bruins held the Flyers scoreless in the period, extending their scoreless streak over 150 minutes.

The Flyers finally found the back of the net in the second period, tying the game up in the process. Wayne Simmonds Tuukka Rask for his 26th of the season, ending the drought at 165:01.

Boston took the lead right back just 19 seconds later on Milan Lucic's 23rd of the season. The Bruins followed it up with another breakaway, but Emery made the big save to keep it 2-1.

That proved pivotal at the time, because less than two minutes later, Jay Rosehill scored in his first game after being a healthy scratch for 12 games. He took a pass from Michael Raffl, put a nice move on Rask, and deposited the puck for his second of the season.

The third period was all Boston. Johnny Boychuk and Lucic scored 31 seconds apart to put the Bruins up 4-2. Chris Kelly added an empty netter to make it 5-2, capping off a third period in which the Flyers were out-shot 22-8.
