Philadelphia and Boston met in the 2010 Winter Classic – the third iteration of the New Year’s Day Outdoor game – when the Bruins defeated the Flyers, 2-1 in overtime, at Fenway Park in Boston. Mark Recchi tied the game for the Bruins with 2:18 left in regulation followed by Marco Sturm scoring the winner 1:57 into the extra session.
After a 10-day pause (4 games postponed), the Flyers got back on the ice on Thursday, hosting the Rangers, and falling 3-2 in a shootout, despite Nicolas Aube-Kubel scoring 59 seconds into the game and Joel Farabee tying the game with 1:14 left in regulation. Carter Hart stopped 31 of 33 shots. Philadelphia went 0-for-5 on the power play.
The Flyers played without six players who remain on the COVID Protocol list and will not travel for this game: Claude Giroux, Travis Konecny, Jakub Voracek, Scott Laughton, Oskar Lindblom, Justin Braun
The Bruins are also coming off a Thursday loss after dropping a 3-2 affair to New Jersey. The B’s have had three games postponed recently, a two-game set against Buffalo earlier this month due to COVID issues within the Sabres organization, and a game against the Devils this past Monday as a result of New Jersey’s schedule.
