When the Bruins take the ice at Wachovia Center against the Philadelphia Flyers for Game 4 tonight, they will try to accomplish something that they have not achieved since 1992: advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. The B's pushed the Flyers to the verge of elimination with a 4-1 win in Philadelphia in Game 3 on Wednesday night. The B's will be without David Krejci tonight and for the rest of the playoffs after the B's center suffered a dislocated wrist in the first period of Game 3.

Notes:

- Simon Gagne skated in practice for the Flyers on Thursday. It is unknown if he will be on the ice for Game 4. Darren Dreger of TSN thinks there is a good chance he will play.

- Trent Whitfield or Brad Marchand will likely fill in for David Krejci.

- Mark Stuart has been practicing with the team, but has not been medically cleared to play yet.

- Will the Flyers do what the Red Wings did last night and send a message with a big win or roll over and die?

- Game starts at 7:00 and airs on Versus.

- Public Skate open thread starts at 6:30.
