It's been more than six months since the Philadelphia Flyers
and Boston Bruins
crossed paths -- and it's not a night the Bruins or their fans want to remember.
The teams meet for the first time this season when Boston comes to the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night for one of seven games on the NHL schedule. It's their first meeting since May 14, when the Flyers capped a historic playoff comeback with a 4-3 victory in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series. The Flyers became just the third team to overcome a 3-0 series deficit -- and then rallied from a three-goal deficit in Game 7 as well.
The Bruins-Flyers game is one of three that begins at 7 p.m. ET. In the others, Edmonton tries to build on Monday's 4-1 win at Ottawa when it visits Montreal in a game that will be shown in Canada on TSN and RDS. Also, Nashville visits Columbus, where the Blue Jackets will try to bounce back after being swept by Detroit in home-and-home series this past weekend.
