The Philadelphia Flyers found themselves in a decent position late in the third period against the Boston Bruins, but saw at least a single point slip away.
The Flyers, playing on the road in Boston, allowed a late goal from Chris Kelly in a 2-1 loss to open the 2014-15 season on Wednesday. Philadelphia got off to a slow start and managed only 20 shots on goal, but managed to somehow stick around, getting a tying goal from Sean Couturier early in the third period.
Not enough, as it turned out.
The Flyers found themselves under pressure, out-shot in two of the three periods.
Based on the comments of their captain, Claude Giroux, held without a point and just one shot on net, it seemed like they were never really got comfortable in this one.
