The Philadelphia Flyers await the Bruins in the second round if Boston can beat Montreal and snap a three-game losing streak in Game 7s Wednesday night. Then the Bruins can go for their first playoff series win over the Flyers under Chiarelli/Julien, who oversaw the seven-game loss of last spring.
Philadelphia took care of Buffalo in its own Game 7 tonight, 5-2. The Flyers would have home-ice advantage.
A Montreal win would set up a match-up between the Habs and Washington Capitals.
