Jarome Iginla, Zdeno Chara scores 2 goals apiece, Bruins beat Flyers 2-1

PHILADELPHIA - Jarome Iginla and Zdeno Chara each had two goals, Tuukka Rask made 25 saves and the Boston Bruins beat the Philadelphia Flyers 6-1 Saturday.

Reilly Smith and Patrice Bergeron also had goals for the Bruins. The defending Eastern Conference champions are 3-0-1 since losing five of eight, and trail only Pittsburgh in the conference.

Claude Giroux scored a power-play goal for the slumping Flyers, who've lost four in a row. They're 2-5-2 in their last nine games, tumbling from second place in the division to eighth in the East. It's their worst stretch since a 1-7 start that got coach Peter Laviolette fired three games into the season.

Steve Mason allowed four goals on 19 shots and was yanked for the second time in three starts since signing a contract extension last Saturday.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
