Mark Recchi's power-play goal late in the third period tied the game and Marco Sturm scored the game-winner 1:57 into overtime as the Bruins came from behind to beat the Philadelphia Flyers, 2-1, at Fenway Park in the NHL Winter Classic. Just over four minutes into the second period, Tim Thomas, who was selected to the U.S. Olympic team in an on-ice ceremony following the game, cross-checked Philadelphia's Scott Hartnell in the back and lost track of Danny Syvret, who unleashed a slapper from the slot. Recchi scored on a power-play goal with 2:18 remaining in the third period. For complete coverage of the Winter Classic, visit the Big Bad Blog.
