as Mark Recchi scored on the power play to break a second-period
tie and the Bruins managed only 13 shots on goal.
Recchi scored Philadelphia's lone goal in a 1-1 tie in Boston on

into the game and watched as five different players tallied.
Murray has scored 10 times in the last nine games and leads the
Bruins with 24 goals.
