Bruins Beat Flyers for 2-0 Lead in NHL Playoffs; Blackhawks Win

May 4 (Bloomberg) -- The Boston Bruins beat the Philadelphia Flyers to take a 2-0 lead in their National Hockey League second-round playoff series, while the Chicago Blackhawks tied the Vancouver Canucks at one game apiece.

Milan Lucic’s goal with 2:57 remaining in the third period last night gave the sixth-seeded Bruins a 3-2 victory over the seventh-seeded Flyers. Miroslav Satan added a goal and an assist for the Bruins, who won the opening game of the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal 5-4 in overtime.

The series shifts to Philadelphia for Game 3 tomorrow.

The Blackhawks also won on late goals. Kris Versteeg scored with 1:30 remaining and Patrick Kane added an empty-net goal less than a minute later to secure a 4-2 win.

The Western Conference semifinal series is tied 1-1 as it shifts to Vancouver tomorrow.

Tonight, the San Jose Sharks, the top seed in the West, visit the Detroit Red Wings in Game 3 of their series after winning the first two games at home. The Montreal Canadiens host the Pittsburgh Penguins after splitting the first two games of their Eastern Conference semifinal series in Pittsburgh.
