Bruins Cup Rewind: B’s Shock Flyers With 7-3 Blowout Win in Game 1 of Eastern Conference Semifinal

Editor's note: NESN is counting down the top 50 moments of the Bruins' 2011 Stanley Cup season. Every day from Aug. 17 to Oct. 5, a memorable moment from the 2011 season will air on NESN Daily and be posted on

After their well-known 2010 collapse against the Philadelphia Flyers, it was only fitting that the B's would need to defeat them in order to advance any further in the postseason in 2011.

While the Bruins would eventually sweep the Flyers, they showed they meant business early and often, picking up a 7-3 victory in Philly in the first game of their Eastern Conference semifinal series.

David Krejci's four-point effort led the B's offense, while Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron each contributed three points in the win.
