It was a big night for the Flyers as they claimed the first of two Stanley Cup championships.
The victory was the first time the franchise had captured a championship since 2002 and also helped propel the team to the NHL’s Eastern Conference Finals, which are held every two years.
The Flyers finished second in the East behind the Washington Capitals and Chicago Blackhawks, but lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
Philadelphia, who had won five of the previous six Stanley Cups, will now try to make a run at another championship, which would take them to the first round in the NHL.
The Bruins were one of the biggest surprises in the playoffs, winning three of the five games against teams with legitimate Stanley Cup aspirations.
They won four straight, including Game 6 against the Philadelphia Flyers.
Boston will host the Chicago Blackhawks in the second round.
Bruins captain Tuukka Rask and forward Patrice Bergeron won’t return after being held out of the first two games.
Boston’s top scorer, Zdeno Chara, has been sidelined with a knee injury.
The Bruins also lost their top scorer and top scorer from last season, Jonathan Toews, to a season-ending knee injury in the first half of the season.
“The guys are playing hard,” coach Claude Julien said.
“I don’t know if I have ever seen such a complete team come together.
It is a great group.”
