The Bruins’ talent became too much to overcome, as the Flyers dropped their fifth straight game, 4-1, to the Bruins on Thursday night.
The Flyers enter Thursday’s game in a four-game losing streak though, and now get the test of facing the NHL’s best team in the standings. The Boston Bruins come in with a 14-2-0 record and wins in four straight games.
The Ducks are an upstart team with a ton of potential. That’s easy to see. They showed plenty of it from the youngsters still in the lineup, ending the Flyers road trip on a sour note as tougher matchups are ahead.
The Ducks were in the same position, with several players also out on COVID protocol, but that didn’t stop them from showing just how much talent they possess. Troy Terry scored a hat trick as the Flyers finished a four-game road trip with a third straight loss, 4-1, in Anaheim.
It was far from a perfect game, but with the help of great goaltending and some timely scoring in the second and third periods, the Flyers were able to snap a three-game losing streak with a 4-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night at Wells Fargo Center.
The Flyers begin a four-game road trip against the Anaheim Ducks, who have lost five straight games and are 2-5-1 after starting the season 3-0-1 through four games. Game time is at 10 p.m.
