The Bruins and Flyers put on a show Sunday afternoon. It's a shame the game started at the same time as the Patriots AFC Final game, taking attention away from a hard-fought, back and forth game.

The Bruins got off to a quick start. Patrice Bergeron scored less than a minute into the game. Only 34 seconds later Milan Lucic dropped the gloves against Tom Sestito. No comparison on the scoresheet, but an even match-up in size, Lucic landed some good rights mid-fight.

Mid-way through the first period Brayden Schenn landed a big hit on Steve Kampfer. As Kampfer was still attempting to get back on his feet, Chris Kelly challenged Schenn. The fight, consisting mostly of jersey-jabs, was a fairly even one. It was Schenn's first regular season NHL fight.

Lucic scored at the 12:30 mark of the first to put the Bruins up 3-1.

The second period was all Flyers. After Scott Hartnell's second goal that tied up the game, Shawn Thornton and Jody Shelley fought for the fourth time in the NHL. It was a good fight, and once again, fairly even. Hartnell capped off the period with another goal, with less than a minute left, completing his natural hat trick and putting the Flyers up by one.

It didn't take long in the third before the Bruins then tied up the game 4-4. Milan Lucic had the second assist on David Krejci's goal, giving Lucic the Gordie Howe Hat Trick. The Bruins would take the lead, and the Flyers would tie it up once more before regulation ended. After a scoreless overtime, the Bruins won the game in a shootout.
