Bergeron and Bruins beat Flyers 4-3 in shootout for 9th consecutive road victory

PHILADELPHIA - Patrice Bergeron scored the go-ahead goal in the second period and also tallied in the shootout to help the Boston Bruins to a 4-3 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday.

The Bruins have won nine straight road games, a single-season club record.

Reilly Smith, the fifth Boston shooter, clinched the victory in the shootout for the Bruins, who improved to 15-0-1 in their last 16 games.

Vincent Lecavalier scored twice for the Flyers, including the game-tying goal with 25 seconds left in regulation. Lecavalier's first goal was the 400th of his career.

Kimmo Timonen scored for Philadelphia, which has lost three of four to remain in third place in the Metropolitan Division.

Andrej Meszaros and Zdeno Chara also scored for the Bruins, who ended March with a 15-1-1 mark.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
