From a one-goal lead to a one-goal deficit, it didn’t take the Boston Bruins long to suddenly find themselves on the losing end of the score Wednesday.
After a feisty start to this game, the Bruins, in a fight for a Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference, held a one-goal lead into the third period. Then, within the span of 1:22 midway through the third, they were trailing.
The Flyers are now winners of four straight games.
And that battle for Wild Card positions is getting awfully crowded. There are seven teams — Tampa Bay, Boston, New Jersey, Pittsburgh, Ottawa, Philadelphia, and Carolina — separated by only three points in that race for the final two playoff spots in the conference.
