The Flyers head into TD Garden on Wednesday night after losing two home games to start the series.

Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette said there is no sense of urgency because all of the pressure is now on Boston.

"When you lose your first two games in your home building, I would say that there is a real expectation for the Bruins to win the series now," Laviolette said following Monday night's game. "So it relieves us of the pressure, I believe, a little bit to just go in and play a game in Boston. And while that relieves us of the pressure, it certainly mounts onto them to be successful now that they have a 2-0 lead."

The Bruins' Mark Recchi said Laviolette is just trying to help his team.

"He's a very good coach, very intelligent, trying to take the pressure off his hockey club," Recchi said of Laviolette.

"He's going to do whatever he can. But we can't worry about what he says. We've got to worry about what happens in this dressing room. We’ll be ready to play."
