When the Bruins and Flyers meet, it's usually a pretty physical affair.

There's never been any love lost between the two franchises and Wednesday night proved no difference. The Bruins skated to a 3-0 win in a physical matchup from the get-go.

The physical play got an early start when resident tough guys Shawn Thornton and Jody Shelley dropped the gloves for a first-period bout.
