Two goals in the third period extended the Boston lead to a 5-2 margin, the final from Wells Fargo Center as the Flyers closed out a three-game homestand.
You can imagine how the result looked when the Boston Bruins, playing in their first preseason home game, took the opportunity to load up with roughly 90 percent of the NHL roster.

A late second-period goal put the Bruins up by two, then everything unraveled again, as the Flyers were routed for the second time this week, losing 6-1.

Things get a little normal for the Flyers again — no major changes before this home game — as they prepare to face one of the West’s best. The Nashville Predators are in town, providing a test for a team that may still be fragile from a lot of changes.
