PHILADELPHIA -- After allowing five goals on just 23 shots in Game 1 Saturday, Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette announced Monday morning that Brian Boucher will get a second chance and will start Game 2 tonight against the Bruins at Wells Fargo Center. 

"Brian will go back in net today," Laviolette announced after the Flyers pregame skate. "Today is a game, for me, where we all get to go back in there and right some wrongs, so everybody gets an opportunity. He's deserves it." 

PHILADELPHIA -- In a nutshell, goaltending-wise, the Bruins have it made. They have this season's best goaltender, and just in case anything might happen to Tim Thomas, they have last season's best goaltender in Tuukka Rask.

PHILADELPHIA — Bruins forward Nathan Horton missed Sunday's practice, doing only off-ice work as the team took the ice at Wells Fargo Center. He and the team explained following the skate that it was an equipment issue that led to his absence. Horton, who famously went to a local sporting goods store to buy a stick during a prolonged scoring slump in the regular season, apparently realized he had a broken skate as he was getting ready for the practice. By the time it was realized, Horton said, coach Claude Julien told him not to bother worrying about the practice.

PHILADELPHIA – There was a feeling around Boston that if the Bruins wanted to get past the Flyers this time around, they would need to bring more than they brought against the Canadiens in the first round. They couldn’t fall behind early on in games.

PHILADELPHIA -- While the Flyers were playing atrocious defense in front of Brian Boucher, they were also letting their big mouths do some talking, according to David Krecji. The Bruins forward, who got the scoring underway less than two minutes into Game 1 Saturday, said the Flyers were reminding him that the last time he was in Philadelphia for a playoff game, he suffered an injury that changed the momentum of the series. 

PHILADELPHIA -- The Bruins began the Eastern Conference semifinals by lighting up Brian Boucher and the Flyers to the tune of a 7-3 Boston victory Saturday. Boucher allowed five goals before being pulled in the second period, and though it marked the fourth time this postseason that the Flyers have had to make a goaltending change mid-game, the Bruins know better than to expect things to come that easy. 

PHILADELPHIA -- David Krejci and Brad Marchand each scored twice as the Bruins chased a shaky Brian Boucher and dominated the Flyers, 7-3, in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Saturday afternoon at Wells Fargo Center. 

PHILADELPHIA -- Bruins forward Brad Marchand did not have to suffer last year's collapse against the Flyers in uniform, but the rookie is happy to be a part of the continuation of what is becoming an interesting playoff rivalry. 

"There's a lot of hype going into this series right now, especially with what happened last year," Marchand said. "It's nice just to be here and hopefully we can write our own chapter." 

Before the team left Boston for Philadelphia Friday, Bruins head coach Claude Julien said the Flyers are a better match up for his team than the Canadiens were in the first round. The Bruins captured three of the four meetings in the regular season and were even able to score on the power play four times, something they failed to do in 21 tries in the opening round. 

Following their final practice Friday morning at TD Garden, the Bruins packed their bags and headed for Philadelphia and Saturday's Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals with the Flyers. But before departing, the Bruins addressed the media and spoke of their thoughts on the even of the playoff rematch with the team that came from 3-0 down in the series and Game 7 to eliminate them last spring.
