Bruins Vs. Flyers: Big First Period Sets Up B's With 4-0 Lead Over Flyers

Traveling into a hostile environment like the Wells Fargo Center meant that the Boston Bruins would have to get off to a quick start in order to silence the home Philadelphia Flyer fans. With the first period complete in Philadelphia, it appears that the B's got the message.

The Bruins didn't even need a minute to get on the scoreboard as Benoit Pouliot got the party started with his fifth goal of the season off a Rich Peverley feed within the first thirty seconds of the game. A few minutes later, the Bruins were able to double their lead with a Daniel Pallie shot that beat Flyer goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov to give the B's a 2-0 lead.

Bruin power play goals were hard to come by last season, but it appears the team is putting things together this season. The Bruins were able to capitalize on two Flyer penalties and increase the lead to 4-0 after goals by Milan Lucic and Zdeno Chara. Chara, is making his first start since missing two games with an injury.

Tim Thomas has once again been phenomenal for the Bruins in this one. Through one period, he has saved all 17 shots the Flyers have sent his way. Meanwhile, Bryzgalov has saved 15 out of 20 shots from the Bruins.
