It was a new series and a new month. Boston hosted the Flyers to an intense and physical game one. The TD Garden was a place of bad results for the Bruins in the regular season but the black and gold have made it a place of great hope in these playoffs. Boston would take all momentum in the first period getting two goals one from Steve Begin and another from Patrice Bergeron. The Bruins would end the first period with a 2-0 lead. In the second the Flyers would answer with a goal from Ryan Parent making it a 2-1 game but Boston would find a way back as Miroslav Satan would get his second playoff goal putting the Bruins back on top 3-1. The Flyers they would want another goal and would get it from Chris Pronger at the end of the second Making it a 3-2 game. Both teams very evenly matched up going into the third. Boston would strike again as David Krejci gets a rebound and snaps it past Boucher.  Boston back on top 4-2 but the Flyers weren’t done as they would get goals from mike Richards and Daniel Brier sending this game into overtime. Right off the face off it was all Bruins pressure on Boucher. The Flyers managed to keep the puck out of the net until Boucher lets a rebound out to the side boards collecting the puck there who else but marc Savard who would score a tough angle goal beating Boucher top shelf near post. Bruins would win 5-4. Savard playing in just his first game back with Boston after missing two months due to a concussion that he received back on March 7th. Boston will look to take a two game lead over the Flyers Monday night back at the TD Garden.
