Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Flyers 5, Bruins 2

The SportsXchange

Matt Read and Oliver Lauridsen scored goals seven seconds apart in the second period to help the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Boston Bruins 5-2 Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

Scott Hartnell, Jakub Voracek and Simon Gagne also had goals for Philadelphia, which isn't going to the playoffs for the first time since 2007.

Wade Redden and David Krejci had goals for playoff-bound Boston. The Bruins are the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Flyers goaltender Steve Mason had 39 saves.

Read put Philadelphia up 2-1 on his 11th goal. Anton Khudobin made a kick save on a shot by Wayne Simmonds, but Read controlled the puck in mid-air, backhanded a pass to himself and swatted a forehanded shot into the net.

Lauridsen then got a lucky break to score his first NHL goal. Lauridsen dumped the puck behind the net and Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara gathered it along the boards. But when Chara flipped it toward the net, Khudobin didn't see it and the puck trickled between his legs.

Khudobin slammed his stick across the post and was pulled for Tuukka Rask afterward.

Voracek scored a pretty breakaway goal to make it 4-1 in the third. He went forehand to backhand to net his 21st.

The teams then traded goals in a span of 13 seconds.

After Krejci put a wrister in, Gagne answered for the Flyers.

Hartnell gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead just 1:40 into the game when he lifted a shot over Khudobin for his eighth goal. Hartnell led Philadelphia with 37 tallies last year.

Redden tied it three minutes later when he wristed a shot past Mason following a pass from 40-year-old Jaromir Jagr, who has 35 points. Redden had two goals in the first three games this year and didn't score again until this one.

Notes: Jagr returned to the NHL with the Flyers last season after three years playing in Russia. He had 19 goals and 54 points and was hoping to remain in Philadelphia, but signed a $4.5 million contract with Dallas. He was traded to the Bruins on April 2. ... Kimmo Timonen became the latest Flyers defenseman to go down with an injury. Of the six blue liners in the lineup for the season opener, only two remain healthy. ... Redden's goal was his first in 22 games.
