WEDNESDAY NIGHT RIVALRY: FLYERS-BRUINS – WEDNESDAY AT 8 P.M. ET ON NBCSN
The Boston Bruins welcome the Philadelphia Flyers to TD Garden tomorrow night as they look to continue their strong play after a slow start to the 2015 campaign. The Bruins are coming off of back-to-back wins in Colorado and Arizona, which included a three-point effort by Patrice Bergeron in Boston’s 5-3 win over the Coyotes. The Flyers have also won two straight games, both shutout victories by goaltender Michal Neuvirth, who stopped 30 shots in a 3-0 win over the defending-champion Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday Night Rivalry last week. The Bruins won the last six matchups between the two teams dating back to the 2013-14 season, and the Flyers have not won in Boston since 2011.
