Philadelphia Flyers on the Brink in Game Four

May 6th, 2010 by Bill Sudell Leave a reply »
Despite a solid effort in Game Three, the Flyers find themselves on the brink of elimination Friday night against the Bruins.
When Arron Asham opened the scoring at 2:32 of the first period Wednesday, it marked the first time in the series the Flyers had the lead. Unfortunately for the Orange and Black, the lead lasted only 1:39 before Blake Wheeler beautifully tipped home a Matt Hunwick shot/pass from the point.
While the Flyers could easily be up 3-0 in this series themselves, give the Bruins credit. They played a great road game in Game Three, withstanding the home team's initial surge and capitalizing on their own chances.
Philadelphia outshot Boston 35-19 for the game, including 23-11 over the final two periods. In the third, the Flyers held an 8-2 shot advantage, but the Bruins scored on both of theirs.
Unofficially, the Flyers had 71 shot attempts to Boston's 31 for the game.
Tuukka Rask stood tall in net for the B's, but his teammates helped him out with 21 blocked shots, including five by Johnny Boychuk.


Down 3-0
