BOSTON - Claude Giroux's second goal, coming on a power play 2:09 into overtime, lifted the Philadelphia Flyers to a 5-4 win over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night.

The Flyers overcame a two-goal deficit in the third period before Giroux one-timed a shot past Tuukka Rask from the left circle for the winner. The Bruins were short-handed with Ryan Spooner off for hooking.

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Sam Gagner also had goals for the Flyers. Chris Kelly, Jimmy Hayes, Brett Connolly and Patrice Bergeron scored for the Bruins, who have lost their first four games at home this season.

Philadelphia's starting goaltender Michal Neuvirth left the game after the first period. No injury was announced, but he wasn't on the bench the rest of the game.
