Flyers get goals from Knuble and Read, beat slumping Bruins 3-1 to snap 4-game skid

PHILADELPHIA - Mike Knuble and Matt Read scored, Ilya Bryzgalov made 33 saves and the Philadelphia Flyers snapped a four-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over the slumping Boston Bruins on Saturday.

Ruslan Fedotenko added an empty-net goal for the Flyers, who began the day 14th in the Eastern Conference but only six points out of the eighth and final playoff spot. Boston, meanwhile, entered with the third-most points in the conference (46).

Nathan Horton scored for the Bruins, who dropped to 2-4-1 in their last seven games. They had won four in a row against Philadelphia.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
