Flyers beat Bruins 3-1 in 'Classic' preview

BOSTON (AP) - December 14, 2009 Brian Boucher stopped 26 shots for the Flyers, who had lost 10 of their last 12 and entered the night tied for the second-fewest points in the NHL.

Vladimir Sobotka scored for Boston, and also had a first-period goal negated by an early whistle. Tim Thomas, making just his fifth start in a month because of an undisclosed injury, made 35 saves for the Bruins.

The longtime rivals are scheduled to meet again on New Year's Day at Fenway Park in the third annual Winter Classic outdoor game.
