Simon Gagne had two goals and an assist and Mike Knuble had a goal and two assists, leading the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night. Antero Nittymaki stopped 22 shots and Scottie Upshall also scored for Philadelphia, which stopped a two-game losing streak. The Flyers have won six of their last nine games to solidify their hold on fourth place in the Eastern Conference and a potential home-ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

Patrice Bergeron and Mark Stuart scored for Boston and Manny Fernandez made 22 saves for the East-leading Bruins, who have lost eight of their last 11. The home team has lost all three matchups between teams this season.
