The Boston Bruins avenged Monday's loss to the Philadelphia Flyers with a bounceback victory Tuesday night.
With Jeremy Swayman in net for his first NHL start and Charlie McAvoy out with an upper-body injury, the B's were able to overcome shaky defense to beat the Flyers, 3-2. Swayman stopped 40 of Philadelphia's 42 shots in the win.
Patrice Bergeron got the party started with two early goals to give the B's up early. That lead didn't last long as the Flyers would score two of their own in the second period. Brad Marchand came through in the third with a shorthanded goal that ended up being the game-winner. Bergeron came through with an empty-netter in the final minute to earn the hat trick.
Here's a full recap of the Bruins' victory:
