Call it a win for the Flyers and Boston charities.
Make it one blown opportunity for the Bruins to stand alone atop the Northeast Division.
Matt Read and Oliver Lauridsen scored 7 seconds apart to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 5-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night.
The Bruins are second in the Eastern Conference and lead the division. But the Bruins and Montreal both have 59 points. New Jersey beat Montreal 3-2 on Tuesday night. With three games left for Boston, and two for Montreal, the race for second will come down to the final week.
The Bruins are slumping down the stretch, with one win in their last six games.
''That was definitely a step back in our game,'' coach Claude Julien said. ''Just really poor puck management tonight and poor decision making. To me, that's a reflection of guys not being ready to play. At some point, they've got to take the accountability of being ready.''
Wade Redden and David Krejci had goals for the Bruins.
