    Thanks to Joe Sullivan of the Bruins Blog, we have a transcript of Marc Savard’s post-game press conference.

    It’s amazing what a 15 minute break and stern tongue lashing can do to a team’s energy and execution. Maybe it just took 20 minutes for the Flyers to wake up. Whatever happened, the Flyers played a much more complete period in the 2nd as they were able to close a two-goal deficit twice in…
