Back in 2010, before the Bruins won the Stanley Cup, the team suffered a crushing blow against the Philadelphia Flyers in the playoffs. Leading three games to none, Boston ultimately lost in seven games, with Philly overcoming a three-goal deficit in Game 7 to really twist the knife in.
Tuukka Rask was the goalie for the B’s back then, but he hasn’t gotten a chance to face the Flyers again since that fateful series. That will change on Saturday in Boston, but it shouldn’t matter much. After all, Rask does have a Stanley Cup ring to his name — and he has played well enough this season to give the Bruins a chance at winning another.

The Boston Bruins have had plenty of chances for revenge since their historic meltdown against the Philadelphia Flyers, and they've usually taken advantage.
Tuukka Rask, however, hasn't gotten one yet.
If Rask is in net for Boston on Saturday against the struggling Flyers, it would be his first appearance versus Philadelphia since Game 7 of the teams' memorable 2010...
The Boston Bruins may have help on the way. A report from Darren Dreger states that the Bruins are working to bring in 27-year-old Carl Soderberg to the NHL after the Swedish Elite playoffs conclude.
Look out Eastern Conference. The Bruins may have found their final piece of the puzzle all without having to make a trade.
Unfamiliar with Carl Soderberg? Here's what you...
The Bruins have not seen much production from their third line this season, but a new-look version of that line found its way onto the scoresheet Sunday afternoon.
Leading the Flyers 1-0 in the first period, winger Jordan Caron tallied his first point of the season in his first game since being promoted from Providence. Caron initially couldn’t handle a pass from Rich Peverley...
After just three full seasons with the Broad Street Bullies, center Claude Giroux was named captain, replacing grizzled veteran Chris Pronger.
Giroux joins a long list of Flyers great to covet the C. There’s even a former Bruin among those to once hold the title of Flyers captain. Can you name the former Bruins forward who also served as Flyers captain from 1984-89?
No one clamied Chris Bourque so he's on his way down to Providence. This chapter of the Bourque Experiment is done but doesn't mean we won't see Raymondson in Boston in the future. Julien laments the decision to waive Bourque, according to CSNNE:
“This is not a coach’s decision. This is an organizational decision,” said Claude Julien. “It...
UGH IT'S AN AFTERNOON GAME! I ******* hate afternoon games man, they're the worst. I mainly hate them because the Bruins absolutely blow donkey balls in afternoon games. I'm not sure what it is, but they seem to never show up for these games. Hopefully, though, the fact that they're playing the Flyers changes everything.
You have to think that the Flyers...
Tyler Seguin scored his third goal in two games and the Boston Bruins added two more in a span of just over 2 minutes in a 3-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.
Tuukka Rask made 23 saves in his second shutout of the season as the Bruins won the first of three meetings with Philadelphia.
Goals scored by Seguin, Chris Kelly and Daniel Paille in the first period were all...
Before the Pac-12 season tipped off, UCLA head coach Ben Howland said he thought it would take until the last weekend of the regular season to be decided.
Entering the last Saturday of the regular season, UCLA is still alive and can clinch at least a share of the Pac-12 regular season title at Washington on Saturday.
It's been a remarkably different year for the Bruins than...
Having rebounded from a brief lull, the Boston Bruins will try to add to their momentum by continuing their recent dominance over the injury-plagued Ottawa Senators.
The Bruins seek a 10th straight victory in Ottawa and an 11th in 12 overall meetings Monday night while trying to end the Senators' five-game home win streak.
Boston dropped back-to-back games for only the second...
For the first time this season the Bruins are going up against the Philadelphia Flyers. The Bruins and Flyers have had bad blood in the playoffs more than the regular season. In 2010 the Flyers came back from a 0-3 series defecit to beat the Bruins. The next year during the 2011 cup run the Bruins swept the Flyers in 4.
So far this season the Flyers are 11-13-1 and tied for...
