Bruins snap Flyers' 9-game win streak behind Rask shutout

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Scott Laughton sped down the boards, attacked the zone and had his pass set on Kevin Hayes to find an open look at Boston's net. Bruins center Charlie Coyle acted more like a Red Sox player headed toward a triple, doing a head-first dive between the circles, his left arm outstretched with a stick that just broke up the pass and kept a game between two of the top teams in the East scoreless.

Coyle had the save of the game. Tuukka Rask took care of the rest, stopping all 36 shots he faced to help the Bruins beat Philadelphia 2-0 on Tuesday night to snap the Flyers' nine-game winning streak.

"Hayes was kind of cocked and ready there," Coyle said. "I think that's all I had, so I just went for it and the play went in my favor."
