I’ts hard to win a game when you give the puck away 16 times.
Philadelphia Flyers winger Scott Hartnell took advantage of a miscue by Boston’s defense and was able to convert the play to a goal. After a solid check on the boards, Hartnell keeps the play alive in front of the Flyers’ net. Then the Bruins attempt to clear the puck out up the center of the ice, but Hartnell corrals the puck and takes an open shot on Tuukka Rask, putting the Flyers up 1-0 early in the game.
