Bruins Vs. Flyers, Game 3 Score: Philadelphia Gets On Board, But Boston's Cruising, 4-1

For a while there in the second period of Game 3 between the Philadelphia Flyers and Bruins in Boston, it looked like there was hope for the road team, trailing 2-0 but turning up the pace and getting more chances on Tim Thomas and the B's.

Then, with one quick decision by defenseman Danny Syvret, the tables turned and Boston pounced. Syvret had a chance to throw the puck on net from the top of the circle, but instead, he went for the pretty cross-ice pass and missed. Boston turned it into an odd-man rush and scored their third goal of the game, which certainly felt like a dagger for those in Philadelphia.

Less than two minutes later, Nathan Horton scored one that Brian Boucher should've had -- the only goal Boucher allowed that he had a chance to save, contrary to what you'll read elsewhere over the next 24 hours -- and with that, Sergei Bobrovksky entered the game. Andrej Meszaros scored late to make it 4-1. 

Technically speaking, Philly isn't completely toast just yet. With the offensive firepower they have, you can't ever count them out of a game, but let's be real: Tim Thomas isn't allowing four more goals tonight.
