Pastrnak, Zacha, Krejci help the Bruins on the best flyers

BOSTON (AP) – David Pastrnak and Pavel Zacha each scored two goals, Jeremy Swayman had his first shutout of the season and David Krejci had three assists in his 1,000th NHL game to help the Boston Bruins beat 6-0 to the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday. .

Pastrnak scored the first goal in the first period and added another on a 4-on-3 power play to start the third to help Boston win for the sixth time in seven games. The Bruins are 21-1-3 at home this season and have the best overall record in the NHL.

Krejci, who had his 16-year Bruins career cut short by playing in his homeland last season, returned to Boston and joined fellow Czechs Pastrnak and Zacha in snapping the Flyers’ three-game winning streak.

Carter Hart stopped 14 shots before being replaced midway through the second period by Samuel Ersson, who made nine stops the rest of the way. The Flyers lost for just the second time in nine games.

ON THE BOARD

Pastrnak opened the scoring five minutes in when he forced a turnover in the Philadelphia zone and drove to the crease, where he deflected a pass from Zacha into the net. With five minutes left in the period, Zacha put his whole body into a slap shot that made it 2-0 and knocked him off his skates.
