The Boston Bruins' four-game point streak ended Saturday afternoon in a 3-2 loss to the rival Philadelphia Flyers on the road.

The B's opened the scoring in the first period when Patrice Bergeron tallied his seventh goal in six games. Unfortunately for Boston, the Flyers dominated the game from that point and earned a comeback win to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Bruins rookie goalie Jeremy Swayman started his third consecutive game and took his first NHL loss. He allowed three goals on 23 shots.
