Farabee's goal in shootout lifts Flyers over Bruins

Joel Farabee scored the lone goal of the shootout as the Philadelphia Flyers edged the host Boston Bruins 3-2 Sunday night.

Travis Konecny and Philippe Myers tallied in regulation as the Flyers recovered from blowing a two-goal lead in the third period. Carter Hart had 26 saves and turned away all three shots he faced in the shootout to lead Philadelphia to its fourth straight win.

Danton Heinen and Brad Marchand scored for the Bruins, who lost their straight game for the first time this season. Jaroslav Halak stopped 27 shots.

The Bruins entered the third down 2-0 before Heinen got them on the board when he spun and whirled the puck past Hart from the front of the net at 5:59. Marchand's wrister from the left circle knotted the score at 12:22.

David Pastrnak received a penalty shot with 4:56 left in the third, but he held too long on the chance and couldn't break the tie.

Boston wasted a late power play in the third and survived a too many men penalty with 20 seconds left in overtime.

Late in the second period, Halak stopped Claude Giroux alone on a breakaway to keep the deficit at two.

The Bruins appeared to first score early in the second after an initial shot by Connor Clifton trickled under Hart's pad and into the net following a push from Par Lindholm. A goal was not signaled on the ice, and the referees concluded after replay the score shouldn't count.

An explanation for the no-goal was not given, but it appeared Clifton might have interfered with Hart.

The Flyers jumped out to a two-goal lead in the first period. Konecny struck first at 13:50 after putting home a rebound of a Couturier shot on a Philadelphia 4-on-1.

Myers doubled the advantage at 17:56 with a snipe over Halak's shoulder from the dot in the right circle. The marker ran Myers' goal-scoring streak to three straight games after he was held to one goal in 21 games all of last season.
