Flyers' 3rd-period rally leads to wild OT win over Bruins
Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports / USA TODAY Sports

Claude Giroux had two goals, including the overtime winner, as the Philadelphia Flyers earned a 5-4 comeback victory over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday.

The Flyers entered the third period down 4-2, but received goals from Giroux and Wayne Simmonds - and a Save of the Year candidate from Steve Mason - setting the stage for their eventual overtime victory.

Things got off to a thrilling start. After each team traded a couple goals in the first period, the game took a nasty turn when Flyers forward Sean Couturier took a late elbow from Bruins forward Zac Rinaldo.

Rinaldo was ejected, while Couturier did not return to the game.

For the Flyers, it wasn't the only injury as goaltender Michal Neuvirth also left the game after going down with an undisclosed injury.

The Bruins bested Mason with two shaky goals from Chris Kelly and Jimmy Hayes, but he remained solid the rest of the way.

Mason stopped 16-of-18 shots for his first win of the season, while Tuukka Rask made 32 saves on 37 shots, falling to 1-3-1 on the season.

Flyers head coach Dave Hakstol had no updates on either Couturier or Neuvirth following the game.
