The Boston Bruins schedule resumes this weekend with one game, a highly-anticipated away bout against the Eastern Conference-leading Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday afternoon (1 p.m., NHLN-US, NESN).

The Bruins, second in the Eastern Conference with 41 points, trail Philadelphia by two points in the standings despite experiencing just two regulation losses in the last month and a half. Boston enters the game winners of three straight, including a 3-0 shutout on Tuesday against Los Angeles and a 5-2 victory against Ottawa on Wednesday during which Tim Thomas turned away 47 shots. The wins moved Boston to 17-2-1 during the team's last 20 games. 

Yet the Bruins won't even be the hottest team on the ice Saturday. The Flyers have won seven straight, including a 4-3 win against Montreal on Thursday. Wayne Simmonds has scored in four straight games for Philadelphia and Scott Hartnell has goals in six of the last seven.
