Jake DeBrusk scored the lone goal in the shootout to lift the host Boston Bruins past the Philadelphia Flyers 5-4 on Thursday.
Nick Ritchie had one goal and one assist, while Brandon Carlo, Jack Studnicka and Charlie Coyle also scored goals for the Bruins. David Krejci added two assists.
Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask made 22 saves, including several spectacular ones late in overtime.
James van Riemsdyk scored two goals for the Flyers, while Claude Giroux and Travis Sanheim had one goal apiece.
Jake Voracek contributed three assists to eclipse the 700-point mark for his career.
Kevin Hayes added two assists, and Flyers goaltender Carter Hart stopped 39 shots.
The Flyers missed all three shots in the shootout.
The Flyers were without several key players such as Sean Couturier (costochondral separation), Morgan Frost (fractured rib) and Phil Myers (shoulder dislocation).
Boston dominated the opening period, but neither team scored thanks in large part to Hart’s 14 saves.
The Flyers were awarded a power play less than six minutes into the second and nearly scored when Voracek hit the crossbar. Giroux capitalized on the next shot as he notched his first goal of the season for a 1-0 lead at 6:17.
