A patched-up Boston Bruins defensive group seemed to do the trick

Entering the game missing both Brandon Carlo and Torey Krug, the Boston Bruins already had a challenge to pull off a result. Add to that the fact that the Philadelphia Flyers were on a nine-game winning streak and looking to hit double figures and you’d have to say the odds were stacked.

With that in mind, the Boston Bruins’ result; not only winning by two goals but keeping the Flyers from scoring, is even more remarkable.

The top pairing of Charlie McAvoy and Zdeno Chara was the only regular pair to remain intact, with the other make-shift pairings seeing John Moore partnering Connor Clifton while Jeremy Lauzon lined up alongside Matt Grzelcyk.
