The talk around the NHL is that the Boston Bruins are playing remarkably well at home and at this point we can’t argue with it.

After beating the Vancouver Canucks 5-2, the Bruins are touting a record of 9-0 when playing at home. Today, they’ll face the Philadelphia Flyers and look to win 10 straight at home.

This 9-0 start at home is a team record that was set in the 1983-84 season at the Boston Garden arena.

Patrice Bergeron, who scored his third goal in two days against the Canucks said: “I think everyone's contributing and playing for the team. I think that's the biggest thing right now.”

Brad Marchand got his fifth goal in only eight games while Connor Clifton and Pavel Zacha also scored and Tomas Nosek added an empty-net goal with 1:58 remaining.

Bergeron continued: “We talked about that. We wanted to have a better start, a better effort. I thought tonight was much better.”

Vancouver coach Bruce Boudreau said the Canucks gave the Bruins too many opportunities to score goals. This includes two delay of game penalties on clearing attempts.

Boudreau said: “It makes it an awfully[sic] difficult time. It seems every time you take a dumb penalty or a needless penalty, those are the ones that are scored on.”

The Flyers should pose a tough test for the Bruins, who have an overall record of 14-2-0 this season.

Philadelphia is 7-6-3 with a 3-3-2 record on the road but they’ve lost four games in a row.
