BOSTON (AP) - Boston is 4-0 in overtime so far these playoffs, and the Bruins insist it's nothing more than hard work and a few lucky bounces.
And it doesn't hurt that Vezina Trophy finalist Tim Thomas is in net. He stopped 46 consecutive shots on Monday night as the Bruins beat the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 in overtime to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinals.
Of course, the Bruins led the Flyers 3-0 in last year's conference semis before blowing the lead and losing in seven games.
This year, Boston has opened the series with two wins in Philadelphia and has a chance to clinch with two more wins at home. Game 3 is Wednesday night at the TD Garden.
