Following an uneventful and lackluster 4-0 loss in Game 5 on Monday night to the Flyers, the Bruins have another chance at advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals, for the first time in nearly two decades, tonight at the Wachovia Center.
Philadelphia, down two games to three in this best-of-seven series, faces elimination for the third consecutive time — second at home.
- Boston is 16-0 lifetime in a best-of-seven series when leading 3-0, and hold a 17-3 record when leading such series 3-2. Their last playoff loss when leading 3-2 was back in 2004 against the Montreal Canadiens in the Conference Quarterfinals.
- Philly is 1-13 all-time when trailing a best-of-seven series 2-3.
