The Bruins (27-17-7) fell to the Flyers (22-23-6) 3-2 in overtime on Thursday night for their second straight post-regulation loss (shootout loss to Winnipeg on Tuesday night).
Philadelphia's win marked their sixth in a row.
In their last eight games dating back to January 10, Boston is now just 2-3-3.
For the second straight game, the Bruins entered the third period with a lead, but couldn't finish the job and get the two points.
At the 11:14 mark in the third, forward Sean Kuraly received a holding-the-stick penalty against the Flyers' Sean Couturier. With 10 seconds left on the power-play, Flyers forward Oskar Lindblom scored his seventh goal of the year on feeds from Jakub Voracek and Travis Sanheim.
Tied at two in overtime, Brad Marchand got called for a tripping penalty against Travis Konecny just 57 seconds in. Just as Boston's penalty kill was coming to a close, Sanheim delivered the game-winning goal on this wicked wrist shot with 2:04 remaining:
Couturier and Konecny assisted on Sandheim's game-winner, which came in his 100th career game.
David Pastrnak scored both goals (one PPG) for the B's, who's now up to 30 on the season.
For Boston, the late penalties taken by Kuraly and Marchand were the team's only two of the evening. Obviously, both ended up to be costly, and that's what sucks about this loss. The Bruins may have gotten a point, but you want two, especially in a situation like tonight. You wanna really rebound after the other night, and you should be able to get it done against the Flyers despite their current mini win streak. But you gotta settle for one point again. And guess what? The schedule's about to get a bit tough, and it begins with a trip to D.C. on Sunday to play the Stanley Cup Champs...
Time to see how tough this Bruins team is!
