Bruins strike first vs. Flyers

BOSTON — In his first game back since a concussion seven weeks ago, Mark Savard scored on a delayed penalty with 6:08 left in the first overtime to give the Boston Bruins a 5-4 playoff victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.

The Bruins took a 1-0 lead in the best-of seven Eastern Conference semifinals. Game 2 is Monday night in Boston.

With the Flyers due to receive a penalty in their own end, Savard got the puck at the right circle and slapped it past goalie Brian Boucher and under the crossbar.

Savard was injured on a blindside hit from Matt Cooke on March 7 and hadn't played since.

Tuukka Rask stopped 32 shots for Boston, and Miroslav Satan and Patrice Bergeron each had a goal and an assist.

Boucher stopped 41 shots, and Mike Richards had a goal and two assists for the Flyers.
