After a surprisingly positive start to the season, the Flyers have degenerated into a bad imitation of their awful 2021-22 selves.
The red-hot Boston Bruins handed the Flyers their fifth straight loss.
David Krejci scored twice in the third period for a 4-1 win..
Boston scored three times in the final period, with Krejci getting his third and fourth goals of the season.
Boston has won 15 of its first 17 games.
Owen Tippett scored on a power-play for Philadelphia, and Carter Hart made 28 saves.
“We’re going to have to find a way to make more plays to get going offensively,” Flyers coach John Tortorella said. “For a lot of minutes, I thought we checked well. We need the guys who can make plays make the plays when they’re there.”
Tippett cut it to 2-1 midway through the third, but Krejci countered 16 seconds later.
