PHILADELPHIA — Blake Wheeler, Miroslav Satan and Mark Recchi scored for Boston in a 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers that lifted the Bruins to a commanding 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal series on Wednesday night.
Patrice Bergeron scored an empty-net goal for the Bruins with 1:52 left.
Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask allowed a quick goal at the start, but stopped 34 shots. The Bruins can complete the sweep in Game 4 in Philadelphia on Friday night.
Wheeler and Satan scored 94 seconds apart in the first period to wipe out the Flyers' lead, and the Bruins never looked back. They won the first two games of the series at home — and the Bruins might not play in Boston again until the Eastern Conference finals.
Arron Asham scored for the Flyers.
