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

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
