The Philadelphia Flyers kept shooting at Bruins’ goalie Tim Thomas. Using his pads, his stick, his body, even his helmet, Thomas rejected them all away 46 times in a row. Odds.

Thomas made a leap after a slow start and stopped all the perfectly positioned shots and the Bruins rewarded him for his amazing performance in OT. David Krejci handed the victory for the Bruins in overtime with the winning goal, but goaltender Tim Thomas’ 52 saves are what decided Game 2.

Thomas was extraordinary, David Krejci scored in overtime, and the Bruins beat Philadelphia 3-2 on Monday night to take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal series. Scores.

Thomas, a Vezina Trophy finalist, stopped 46 straight shots after the Flyers scored two early goals to take the lead in the first period. He then snared and smothered pucks, stopped them with his legs and elbows, and silenced a Flyers attack that never stopped firing. “He was by far the star of the game,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said. The series now shifts to Boston for the next two games on Wednesday and Friday.

James van Riemsdyk had a breakout game for Philadelphia as well. He scored his team’s two goals and was all over the ice trying to take the Flyers to a home win. Chris Kelly and Brad Marchand also scored for the Bruins, who have taken a seemingly commanding lead on the Flyers for the second straight year.

The multitude was rocking from the beginning after they heard the usual inspiring interpretation of “God Bless America,” live by Lauren Hart. Fans chanted “U-S-A! U-S-A!” after lineups were introduced, and again after the song was finished, a day after Osama bin Laden was killed. Las Vegas odds.

The Bruins lead the series 2-0 and they’ll have an advantage now that the next two games will be played at Boston.
