Flyers Goalie Carter Hart Teases Bruins’ Brad Marchand

The Boston Bruins lost another game when leading by three goals at one point. That’s the second time this has happened to the Bruins this season. Usually, the Bruins are pretty reliable with the three-goal leads, but this wasn’t the story on Monday night.

More than that, the Bruins’ ever-present struggles in the shootout continued. However, it was not as bad as it could seem. The New Jersey Devils set the NHL record in the 2013-14 season with an 0-13 record in the shootout. The Bruins are currently 0-7 in the shootout this season.

The Bruins gave up five goals in regulation, excluding the empty net goals, for only the second time this season. To surrender four-plus goals against in regulation, excluding the empty netters, happened for only the fourth time this campaign, twice in the most recent three contests.

In the shootout, the Bruins had a glorious chance to salvage a miserable fallout. Jake Debrusk and David Krejci attempted to seal the deal for the Bruins, but Carter Hart stopped them. Then, it was Brad Marchand‘s due to even it up for his team and send the shootout lottery to round No. 6. However, something unprecedented occurred. Marchand did just enough to move the puck by mere inches. He overskated it, and the Flyers won the game.

After failing to score a goal on Saturday against the Tampa Bay Lightning, Philadelphia was ecstatic to score five times to win versus the Bruins and beat them in the shootout for the second time this season.

The Flyers’ young goaltender Hart taunted Marchand in a post-game interview.

“That’s pretty funny it happened to him,” Hart said as his comment went viral and popular on the Flyers’ Twitter. Hart, who allowed five goals on 31 shots on goal, improved to 13-2-2 this season at home.

The Flyers´ players seemed to enjoy the fun after Marchand´s miss, as well.

Boston will have a chance for revenge when they visit Philadelphia on March 10. The Bruins currently hold the second spot in the Eastern Conference. They would meet the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, but a match with the eighth-placed Flyers is not out of charts.
