Place: TD Garden
- Bruins are the #1 team in the NHL.
- Bruins have dropped 2 straight heading into this game.
- Bruins are in the top 10 in just about every major statistical category.
- Flyers are coming off a disheartening 2-0 loss to CBJ Thurday night; they're winless in their last 3 games.
- Flyers will be playing their first of a back-to-back; they head home to face Buffalo tomorrow.
- Claude Giroux is currently on a 3 game pointless streak, his longest such streak since he opened the season with 5 pointless games.
- This is the 3rd and final meeting of the year; Boston has won both previous games.
