Jones' crazy bounce helps Flyers to a 4-3 win over Bruins in overtime

NHL.com @NHL

BOSTON - Randy Jones' shot caromed into the net off Boston defenceman Andrew Ference with two minutes left in overtime to lift the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-3 win over the Boston Bruins on Saturday.

Former Bruin Glen Metropolit, Scott Hartnell and Simon Gagne also scored for the Flyers, who overcame a 3-1 deficit, and won for the second time in five games.

Byron Bitz scored his first NHL goal for Boston, and Marc Savard and Chuck Kobasew had the other two.

About 55 seconds after Boston's Dennis Wideman's redirected shot hit the right post, Jones fired a seemingly harmless shot that was clearly wide of the net, but the puck hit Ference's body and caromed into the net.
