After Brian Boucher left the game a bit over 4 minutes in the second period and the Flyers protecting a 1-0 lead, you would think the Bruins would amp up their play and take advantage of a goaltender who hasn’t seen the ice since the middle of March.

Instead, we witnessed the Flyers press the Bruins even harder and score two more goals to take a 3-0 lead into the second intermission.

Michael Leighton stopped all six shots he faced, and Scott Hartnell scored his second first goal of the game, cashing in on one hell of a shift by Ville Leino. The former Red Wings forward has been a force for the Flyers tonight, using his skill and physicality to control the play all throughout the second period.

Meanwhile, the Bruins (and their fans) look disinterested and a bit defeated, as the Flyers are threatening to turn what was once a 3-0 series into a pivotal Game 6 in Philadelphia.
