The Boston Bruins picked up a point in a shootout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.

Michael Del Zotto and Claude Giroux scored within two minutes of each other in the middle of the 1st period. Giroux’s goal came off of a Flyer power play. The Bruins peppered Flyers goaltender, Steve Mason, the entire night as the B’s racked up 47 total shots. Mason played a solid game and is the sole reason the Flyers ran away with two points. Both goaltenders played an amazing game and were fun to watch. Rask made only 19 saves but came up huge in must-save situations, and gave the Bruins the best possible chance to win in the shootout. Mason was a brick wall between the pipes for Philly racking up 45 saves on the night.   The black and gold found that they were down 2-0 heading into the final period.

The third period was all Bruins as they made a comeback to force the game into overtime. Just like the Flyers opening goals in the first the Bruins notched back-to-back goals within minutes of each other from David Krejci and Brad Marchand. The momentum was in full swing for the Bruins until Flyers Jakub Voracek was awarded a penalty shot off a Joe Morrow trip. Tuukka Rask stoned Voracek and kept the game tied at 2-2. The Bruins overall record is now 12-10-1 putting them in 4th place in the Atlantic division.
