Bruins confident going into series with Flyers @NHLdotcom

BOSTON (AP) - The Bruins emerged from a hardfought first-round playoff series convinced that the resilience they showed will help them avoid a repeat of last season's epic second-round flame out against the Flyers.

Boston squandered a 3-0 series lead to Philadelphia last spring, allowing the Flyers to become just the third team in NHL history to accomplish such a comeback.

The Bruins earned a rematch this year by downing archrival Montreal in the first round, rallying from 0-2 down in the series and 3-1 down in Game 4 before winning a Game 7 in which they lost two leads.

That performance has Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli confident that his team isn't carrying any baggage from last year's collapse against the Flyers.

Game 1 is Saturday in Philadelphia.
