Bruins Beat Flyers 5-1, Advance to Eastern Conference Finals
By Stacey Kilpatrick
I was 4-years old in 1992, which was the last time the Boston Bruins played in the Eastern Conference Finals. Now, I’m almost 23-years old and cannot believe that they are headed back the championship.
Johnny Boychuk, Milan Lucic and Brad Marchand goals during the third period helped Boston secure a 5-1 victory on Friday at the TD Garden against the Philadelphia Flyers, as well as punch their ticket to round three of the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Lucic put the Bruins on the scoreboard at 12:02 in the first period on a power play. Yes, they scored on a power play, which was followed up by some great Tim Thomas goaltending, which was on display all night long.
