Bruins continue road trip with stop in Philly

New, comments

The Bruins will play their fourth game of a seven game road trip when they take the ice against the Flyers in Philly tonight. The Bruins are currently on a two-game skid after falling to the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3 in overtime on Tuesday night. The Bruins will be without Marc Savard for the second straight game after the centerman suffered a Grade-2 concussion courtesy of Matt Cooke's open-ice head shot in the third period of Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Zdeno Chara is also considered questionable for tonight's game with a lower body injury. At the other end of the rink, the surging Flyers will be looking for their third straight win and are 7-2-1 over their last ten games.
