Bruins Vs. Flyers: David Krejci's Overtime Goal Gives Boston 2-0 Series Lead

They needed overtime and an amazing 52 save (!) from Tim Thomas, but the Boston Bruins won another game on the road Monday night, beating the Philadelphia Flyers in OT, 3-2, to take a 2-0 lead in their Eastern Conference semifinal series.

The game-winning goal came 14:0 into the extra time, and it took a bit before the Bruins had even learned they officially won.

David Krejci's one-time on a pass from Nathan Horton rocketed past Sergei Bobrovskybut the immediate ruling was that the puck had hit the back pipe

The goal was initially waved off, but at the next whistle the play was reviewed. Replay showed the puck hit the rear brace of the net before ricocheting back into play, giving Boston the win and a 2-0 lead in the best- of-seven series.

Chris Kelly and Brad Marchand each had a goal in regulation while Tim Thomas stopped 52 shots for the Bruins, who will return home for the next two games with Game 3 set for Wednesday.

James van Riemsdyk had both goals for the Flyers, who fell to 2-4 at home in these playoffs.

Brian Boucher left in the second period with an apparent hand injury, but came back for the third and played the rest of the game. He allowed all three goals on 35 shots while Sergei Bobrovsky stopped all six shots he faced in nearly nine minutes of action in the middle session.

The series shifts to Boston for Game 3, on Wednesday at 7 p.m. ET.
