Flyers-Bruins Preview (The Associated Press)
- Updated: March 6, 2015
Since being stunned by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2010 Eastern Conference semifinals, the Boston Bruins have had their number. Now Boston would like to play a role in keeping the Flyers out of the playoffs altogether and boost its own chances of qualifying by completing a season sweep Saturday at TD Garden. The Bruins (31-22-10) enter the final five weeks of the regular season clinging to a two-point lead over Florida for the East’s final wild-card spot. “We have to get points and get ourselves going and really try to separate ourselves from the bottom pack and gain some ground there,” goaltender Tuukka Rask told the team’s official website.
