Flyers Put the Pressure on Bruins in Second Period

After a somewhat lackluster and sloppy first period, the action was stepped up considerably in the second frame when Scott Hartnell led a furious charge by the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Flyers outshot the Bruins 12-6 in the second and had several breakaway and odd-man rushes as Boston suffered from several defensive breakdowns. The heavy forechecking and pressure by the Flyers also seemed to get under the skin of the Bruins, as the hometown team seemed more concerned with retaliation rather than defending their net.

The fact that Philadelphia leads just 1-0 is surprising, but there’s no doubt the Flyers are in complete control of the game.
