PHILADELPHIA (AP) Wayne Simmonds just had to tap the puck over the blue line but couldn’t. Then Andrew MacDonald fanned on a clearance.Patrice Bergeron pounced on the extra chances Dan Hamhuis Jersey Womens , tying it for the Boston Bruins with 3.8 seconds left and leaving the Philadelphia Flyers stunned.It took Jakub Voracek’s pep talk and Claude Giroux’s acrobatics to finally give Philadelphia a crucial win.Giroux scored his second goal with 1:21 left in overtime and the Flyers recovered for a 4-3 victory over Boston on Sunday to inch closer to returning to the playoffs after a year absence.”The play at the end of the game is a play that can’t happen. We all know that,” Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said of the stick-handling mishaps. ”Take that puck and just push it out to the neutral zone.”Dazed ahead of OT, Voracek implored his teammates to stay focused. Voracek then sprung Giroux on a breakaway. The captain faked out goaltender Anton Khudobin by acting like he was going to take the puck through his legs, only to snap a backhander for his career-best 29th goal.”I just thought I’d try that,” Giroux said, grinning.Travis Konecny added a dazzling goal and an assist, Nolan Patrick also scored and Petr Mrazek made 36 saves for the Flyers. Philadelphia opened an eight-point lead over idle Florida, the last team that can overtake it for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference – the Flyers have three games left and the Panthers five.Bergeron helped the ailing Bruins earn a point. With the goaltender pulled, Bergeron got his 30th goal on feed from Brad Marchand after the Flyers’ miscues.”We didn’t have a ton of control, but we continued to stay on it,” Marchand said. ”Tried to force them to make plays Youth Pavel Zacha Jersey , turn a couple of pucks over and it ended up in the net.”Noel Acciari and David Pasrnak scored and Khudobin stopped 20 shots for the Bruins, who lost Brandon Carlo and Riley Nash to injuries a day earlier.The Bruins welcomed Zdeno Chara back from an upper body injury a day after losing fellow defenseman Carlo to a possible serious leg injury, but they couldn’t complete a season sweep of Philadelphia.”We got the point, but losing (stinks), Khudobin said.Boston moved two points ahead of Tampa Bay atop the the Atlantic Division. The Lightning played later Sunday against Nashville.A day after Vegas’ Willam Karlsson’s short-handed, between-the-legs goal was declared by many to be the NHL’s top goal this season, Konecny provided competition. His nifty stick work made it 2-0 just 25 seconds into the second period.Konecny flicked the puck between two defenders along the boards, regained possession in the faceoff circle, went to his backhand to slip past a flailing Bergeron and then quickly switched back to his forehand and beat Khudobin from the slot for his 24th goal.”I think it was just instinct. I reacted,” Konecny said. ”When it happens, you’re just in the moment.”But it was Giroux Authentic Taylor Hall Jersey , who has a career-high 95 points, that came up with the final and most important tricky stick work.”I’ve seen some great highlight-reel goals throughout the year,” Hakstol said, ”but I don’t think I’ve seen a better one than that.”NOTES: Bruins D Torey Krug said he was hit in the face by Patrick’s high stick just before Patrick’s goal made it 3-1. . Flyers G Alex Lyon was recalled on an emergency basis to back up Mrazek as Michal Neuvirth (lower body) was unavailable. No. 1 G Brian Elliott (abdominal surgery) practiced Saturday and could return this week. . Bruins D Charlie McAvoy (knee) skated before the game and could return Tuesday. . Marchand, who was named the NHL’s second star of March, took a penalty when he cross-checked Andrew MacDonald in the face late in the second period.UP NEXTBruins: Tuesday night at Tampa Bay in the second matchup in six days of the East’s top two teams.Flyers: Tuesday night at the New York Islanders in their final road game of the regular season.— Last February, the beginning of the end for Mike Yeo unfurled in Nashville, although no one suspected it at the time.The St. Louis Blues‘ coach was sitting pretty on a Tuesday night with a 3-0 lead midway through the third period, his team about to move two points closer to the Predators in the Central Division race with plenty of time to catch them.Then Nashville roared back with three goals in a five-minute span to force overtime and won on a penalty shot by Filip Forsberg. That was the pivotal result in a seven-game losing streak that helped St. Louis miss the playoffs by one point.Article continues below ...Yeo’s Blues never gained any traction this season, either, and after a 2-0 loss Monday night to Los Angeles dropped their record to 7-9-3 Womens Will Butcher Jersey , the hangman arrived. General manager Doug Armstrong canned his third coach in seven-plus years and promoted Craig Berube on an interim basis. Berube doesn’t exactly get to ease into the new gig, taking St. Louis to Nashville Wednesday night for the first of a home-and-home series with the NHL’s top team. The division rivals square off again Friday night in St. Louis.The first job for Berube is to find a way to get a puck into the net. Monday night’s defeat was the third time in four games the Blues have been blanked. This time, it was by Cal Peterson, he of three games of NHL experience.“It’s hard to win when you don’t score goals,” forward Vladimir Tarasenko told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.The 45-year-old Yeo was the NHL’s second coach to lose his job this season, hours ahead of Edmonton parting ways with Todd McLellan on Tuesday.Los Angeles axed John Stevens on Nov. 3 in favor of Willie Desjardins. Like the Blues, the Kings are off to a slow start and face a serious uphill climb if they are to get into contention.Having gotten a coach fired, St. Louis figures to come out with a detailed effort Wednesday night. But it went 0-for-4 last season against the Predators (15-5-1), and with key forwards like Patrick Maroon, Alexander Steen and Jaden Schwartz injured, scoring goals against Pekka Rinne doesn’t look like it will be easy.Rinne (8-2-1 http://www.officialislanders.com/authentic-adidas-adam-pelech-jersey , 1.69 goals-against average, .942 save percentage) came up big for Nashville in a 3-2 victory Monday night over Tampa Bay, stopping 29 of 31 shots. He got help from defenseman Mattias Ekholm, who denied the Lightning a tying goal in the last 10 seconds by knocking a puck away from the goal line after it trickled off and behind Rinne.“We knew we were going to get pressured hard there at the end with their skill and six guys on the ice,” Rinne said. “But our guys did a great job — we blocked a lot of shots and made it hard for them.”The Predators might regain the services of All-Star defenseman P.K. Subban, who’s sat out the last three games with a lower-body injury.The Blues are expected to start Jake Allen (5-5-3, 3.33, .895), who has ceded just one goal in each of his last three outings.
