Bruins top Flyers ‘A’ squad for first preseason win


  • The Bruins defeated an “A” squad of Flyers, 3-1, Thursday night to bring their preseason record to 1-0-1.
  • Peter Cehlarik scored the go-ahead goal from Brendan Gaunce at 4:16 of the second.
  • It’s varsity or bust for Cehlarik, who has 10 points in 37 games since debuting with Boston in 2016. Because of NHL rules, the 24-year-old would have to clear waivers if shipped to Providence.
  • It was a busy night for Connor Clifton, who took two penalties and scored the 3-1 goal on a breakaway out of the penalty box.

“I knew I was going backhand,” Clifton said. “I don’t know what to do on breakaways.”

  • Jaroslav Halak made 16 saves on 17 shots through the second period for Boston, and Maxime Lagace made six saves in relief.
  • Brian Elliott allowed two goals on 24 shots through the second, and Alex Lyon saved nine of 10 shots in relief.
