BOSTON -- A Cup hangover was non-existent for the Boston Bruins throughout most of Thursday nights season opener at the TD Garden, but a lackadaisical 50 seconds in the first period did the Bs in, as they lost 2-1 to the Philadelphia Flyers after raising the franchises sixth banner to the rafters prior to the opening puck drop.
The Flyers scored two goals and took a 2-1 lead in the final minute of the first period, as Claude Giroux finished a power-play breakaway with a deke to his right with 50 seconds left, followed by Jakub Voraceks rebound goal from the slot with just 2.4 seconds remaining in the period.
It came nearly 10 minutes after Brad Marchand gave the Bruins an initial 1-0 lead, midway through the first.
Marchand was pulling off filthy moves all night, and finished on his first, as he scored on the teams first power play of the season.
Tyler Seguin made the play happen, as he sent a perfect cross-ice pass from blue line to blue line, and Marchand burst out front from the left wing, finishing by sliding a sneaky backhander past Bryzgalovs right pad.
Unfortunately for the Bs, that would be all theyd get.
