Bruins Vs. Flyers: B's Look To Shut Down Depleted Flyers Offense

Bruins Vs. Flyers Preview: TV/Radio Info, Time, Location And More

Event: Boston Bruins at Philadelphia Flyers
Date/Time: Sunday, January 22, 2012 - 3 p.m. EDT.
Location: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PA
Broadcast Info: Sunday's game between the Flyers and the Devils will be broadcast live on NESN. The game can also be heard on 100.7 FM, with Dave Goucher providing play-by-play, and Bob Beers providing analysis.

Last Time Out: The Bruins nearly went the distance against the Eastern Conference leading New York Rangers, but were doomed by a major penalty to Andrew Ference in overtime for boarding Ryan McDonagh.

Ference, who has a meeting with Brendan Shanahan at 10 this morning, is likely to be unavailable for Boston, which called up Steven Kampfer from Providence.

The Flyers beat New Jersey 4-1 on Saturday afternoon, but not without a big expense, as they lost center Danny Briere to a concussion and winger Jaromir Jagr to a lower-body injury. The Flyers will look to Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell to step up and fill the void tonight.


Storyline: Flyers-Bruins matchups require no introduction. The last time out, Boston thumped the Flyers 6-0 after Philadelphia ruined Boston's opening night ceremonies with a 2-1 victory back in October.

Players To Watch:
Look for Hartnell and Giroux to be big for Philadelphia, and expect a strong effort from Nathan Horton for Boston, who played with a bee under his bonnet throughout all of Saturday's matinee loss to the Rangers.

Prediction: Tough to tell how two tired teams will fare. The Bruins are likely to be a bit more sore after a physical matchup with the Rangers, but both teams will be without key players in this one. It likely won't be a blowout like the last game, but to expect this one to be a high-scoring duel is asking a bit much. Bruins 3, Flyers 1
