Flyers defeat Bruins in shootout for fourth straight victory
- The Philadelphia Flyers extended their winning streak to four games with a 3-2 shootout victory against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Sunday.
- Joel Farabee scored the only goal of the shootout, and Carter Hart made 26 saves through overtime for the Flyers (10-5-2), who have earned at least one point in their past six games (5-0-1).
- Five of those six games have gone to overtime or the shootout, including a 3-2 shootout win at the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.
“Back-to-back this weekend, and it was against two tough teams, but we battled hard for 120 minutes,” Hart said. “Back-to-backs can be tough, especially with travel, but we handled it really well, we came out hard both games. They didn’t have anything for the first two periods, and I think that’s just a good character win for us tonight, especially on back-to-backs because you’re always battling the fatigue factor. But clearly that wasn’t a factor for us tonight.”
- Jaroslav Halak made 27 saves for the Bruins (11-3-3), who came back from down two goals in the third period but have not won in their past three games (0-2-1).
- Philadelphia outshot Boston 20-10 in the first and second periods.
“Maybe we were a little bit slow,” Bruins forward David Pastrnak said. “They came out flying, they had legs. Usually back-to-back, the second night, the first period you are rolling, you are kind of feeling like you haven’t stopped playing. You know, it’s on us, we have to be ready for that. It’s always tough coming from behind, but the positive is we battled back and we got a point.”
