BOSTON - The Bruins postponed their game Friday as authorities searched for a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, virtually shutting the city down. Authorities in Boston suspended all mass transit, used by many fans to get to games. Trains were allowed to run again after 6 p.m. The suspect was in custody late Friday night. The game at TD Garden between the Bruins and the Pittsburgh Penguins, two of the top four teams in the Eastern Conference, was tentatively rescheduled for Saturday at 12:30 p.m. A final decision on whether it would be played was to be made by four hours before faceoff, the Bruins said.

With four minutes remaining in the Flyers' final game against the rival Pittsburgh Penguins during another unfulfilled season, the Wells Fargo Center crowd started chants of "You can't beat us!" There has been little for Flyers fans to cheer about during the last month, but they found a worthy one Sunday. Even though the Flyers will finish the season this week with one of the NHL's worst records, they will at least have an undefeated mark against the Penguins. The Flyers finalized the four-game season sweep with a 4-1 victory in an Easter Sunday matinee that weakened Pittsburgh's postseason push.

PITTSBURGH - This is not an April Fools' Day joke: Flyers goalie Steve Mason recorded a road victory and Vinny Lecavalier scored a goal Wednesday night. Both were a long time in the making. The Flyers, with Brayden Schenn scoring a pair of goals, registered a 4-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Consol Energy Center, their first road win since Feb. 15 in Buffalo. Lecavalier scored his first goal since Jan. 3, and Mason recorded just his second road victory this season.

PAUL HOLMGREN remembered the pitch. Sitting at the NHL draft table, scouts occasionally pipe up to management to advocate for a player in their region they feel strongly about who might still be available. It was scout Mark Greig, who primarily covers the Western Hockey League for the Flyers, touting left winger Taylor Leier with the 117th overall pick in the fourth round. Greig's message to Holmgren was clear. "This kid is going to find a way to play in the NHL," Holmgren recalled Greig saying.

PITTSBURGH - Special teams contributed mightily as the Flyers swept a home-and-home weekend series from the Pittsburgh Penguins. Pittsburgh took the league's best power-play (24.8 percent success) into Sunday, but went 0 for 4 with the extra man and allowed a shorthanded goal to Matt Read in the Flyers' 4-3 victory. In Saturday's 4-0 Flyers win, the Penguins were 0 for 5 and also surrendered a shorthanded score to Read. "I think Lappy did a great job of video scouting," said center Sean Couturier, referring to assistant coach Ian Laperriere, "and we were well-prepared.

PITTSBURGH - In the two games over the weekend, the Flyers' power play was 3-for-7 against the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Penguins' power play was 0-for-9 against the Flyers while allowing two shorthanded goals. Which explains a bunch. Wayne Simmonds scored twice on the power play in yesterday's 4-3 win at Consol Energy Center. Matt Read, for the second straight game, had a shorthanded goal. And if this one wasn't as lopsided as Saturday's 4-0 Flyers win in Philadelphia, it was another game when the special teams complemented a balanced effort from a team that believes its balance is its strength.

Glorious weather. Hundreds of adoring fans. A "Who's Who" of former Flyers among those paying tribute as the organization unveiled a statue of the late Fred Shero on Saturday morning outside Xfinity Live. Oh, and Ray Shero, who happens to be the general manager of the Flyers' most bitter enemy, taking some good-natured jabs from a rather influential heckler. Shero, the architect of the Pittsburgh Penguins' powerhouses, walked to the podium and talked about his father's remarkable coaching tenure in Philadelphia.

PITTSBURGH - While the NHL has been criticized in some quarters for shutting down its season while the Olympic hockey tournament takes place in Sochi, Russia, the enthusiasm of the participants can't be emphasized enough. Take Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby, for example. There is no bigger name in the sport. The NHL superstar certainly boosted his international profile by scoring the game-winning goal during Canada's 3-2 overtime win against the United States during the 2010 Olympic gold-medal game in Vancouver.

Twice in the second period Thursday night, Matt Read flashed the skill set that had been missing from both his play and so much of this Flyers season. Twice, Steve Downie found him near the Buffalo Sabres' net, and twice Read flicked the puck past goaltender Ryan Miller - a one-timer from the slot, a deft little deke that opened the upper half of the net. Read had the Flyers' first two goals in their 4-1 win Thursday, their fifth victory in their last six games, and the Flyers appear to have settled into Craig Berube's system, to have transformed their season from ragged to relevant, and it's clear now what they ought to do next: Absolutely nothing.

OTTAWA - For the first time in 18 months, since they knocked off the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2012 playoffs, there was a buzz in the Flyers' locker room last night. Mac Miller's "Knock, Knock" tune, the anthem of the last Flyers team with any swagger, was blaring in the locker room - because, well, Craig Anderson let 'em in. The Flyers are finding out just how easy it is to win when their top scoring lines produce. Relieved after Claude Giroux' first goal of the season on Saturday, the once-mystifying Flyers offense toppled Ottawa, 5-0, for their second straight win. Not surprisingly, the Flyers are 51-6-4 since 2010 when Giroux scores multiple points.
