Carter, Flyers take on Bruins

Boston (37-8-6) at Philadelphia (26-14-9), 7:00 pm EST

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- All-Star Jeff Carter and the

Philadelphia Flyers will get their first shot at the Eastern

Conference-leading Boston Bruins as the teams open a home-and

home series on Wednesday.

The Flyers, who are coming off a 4-0 loss to the St. Louis

Blues, will visit the Bruins three days later.

Carter ranks second in the NHL with 32 goals, trailing

Washington Capitals superstar Alex Ovechkin, who is the reigning

Hart Trophy winner.

The 24-year-old Carter was held scoreless along with the rest of

his teammates during Saturday's loss as Philadelphia finished

its three-game road trip with a 1-2-0 record.

It won't be any easier for Carter in this one against the

league's top-ranked defense. The Bruins have allowed just 113

goals this season.

The Bruins have surrendered one tally over their last two

contests, picking up back-to-back wins over the New York Rangers

and rival Montreal Canadiens this past weekend.
