PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia Flyers try to avoid a third straight loss on Thursday when they host the Boston Bruins at the Wachovia Center.

Philadelphia has turned in a pair of poor outings in its last two games, 5-2 losses to San Jose and Tampa Bay. The Flyers are trying to avoid their first three-game skid since a four-game losing streak from January 8-13.

This is the third meeting between Philadelphia and Boston this season. The Flyers pulled out a 3-2 victory here on November 22 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 December 6. Sergei Samsonov scored on the power play for the Bruins.

Boston has registered at least one point in each of its last 10 games (7-0-1-2). The Bruins improved to 3-0-0-2 on their seven-game road trip with Tuesday's 5-2 triumph at Toronto.

Glen Murray had a goal and an assist as Boston struck 32 seconds 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.
