BOSTON (AP) -Marco Sturm capped a late comeback with an overtime goal, Tim Thomas saved his best for the end and the Boston Bruins beat the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 on Friday in the Winter Classic, the first NHL game at the home of the Red Sox.

Mark Recchi, a former Flyer, tied it with a power-play goal with 2:18 left in the third period, ending Michael Leighton's shutout streak of more than 150 minutes. Then Sturm connected 1:57 into overtime on a pass from Patrice Bergeron.

Philadelphia's Danny Syvret scored his first NHL goal at 4:42 of the second.

A sellout crowd of 38,112 watched in near-ideal conditions. The gametime temperature was 40 degrees, the highest of any of the three Winter Classics.
