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

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
