'Under' bettors were shaking their heads after the game between Philadelphia and Boston on Thursday night.

There were no goals in this game for the first 26 minutes, and the Flyers led 2-0 at the end of the second period.

The Bruins exploded in the third period with four goals though to help push the game well 'over' the total.

They ended up going to a shootout that Boston won 5-4 in by far the Bruins’ highest scoring game of the young 2020-21 season.

Flyers vs. Bruins Current Form-Last Game

The Flyers’ offense looked fantastic against the rival Penguins in their first two games. Philadelphia found the back of the net 11 times in consecutive three-goal wins over Pittsburgh.

Six different Flyers scored in their 6-3 victory in the opener with Joel Farabee and Erik Gustafsson leading the way. Farabee was the first star with one goal and three assists, while Gustafsson picked up assists on the team’s first two power play goals. Travis Konecny stole the show in the second game, notching a hat trick in a 5-2 win.

Philly’s offense didn’t look as strong against Buffalo in its next two games. Nicolas Aube-Kubel scored in the final two minutes of play to keep the Flyers from getting shut out in a 6-1 loss to the Sabres on Monday.

They were able to bounce back and pick up a 3-0 win the following night, but neither Philly nor Buffalo was able to score for the first 37 minutes of that game until Konecny broke the deadlock just before the end of the second period.
