Bruins go up 3-0 in series with a big win at home

It took less than one minute and three seconds for the Bruins to take a two-goal lead on the Flyers Wednesday night in their Game 3 Stanley Cup Playoff match-up, but it took 58 minutes and 57 seconds for the Bruins to go up 3-0 in the series with a 5-1 win.


Zdeno Chara and David Krejci scored 33 seconds apart in the first 63 seconds to literally start the game for the Bruins, and the Flyers, who had said they were treating this game 3 like it was a game 7, treated it like it was a game 7. Of the exhibition season.

Tim Thomas was his usual, Vezina-quality self, making 37 saves against the hapless Flyers, who played once again without defenseman Chris Pronger and used Jeff Carter on a limited basis.

Daniel Paille and Nathan Horton each scored in the second period, which chased Rhode Island native Brian Boucher from the game. Sergei Bobrovsky, with the help of some quick legs and kind goal-posts, managed to keep the Bruins mostly in check the rest of the way. Late in the 3rd period, the Bruins got a 5 on 3 power play and FINALLY scored with the 2-man advantage as Chara knocked home another goal. The Flyers are going back to the future, hoping they can do the impossible in back-to-back seasons, coming back from 3-0 down to win in the second round of the playoffs.
