(Sports Network) - The Boston Bruins will try to halt a three-game losing streak this afternoon, when they welcome the Philadelphia Flyers to TD Banknorth Garden.

The Bruins, who are last in the Northeast Division with 41 points, were handed their past two setbacks in a home-and-home series with Toronto.

Things got very ugly in the back end of the set, as the Maple Leafs pounded the Bruins, 10-2, in Beantown on Thursday. Alexander Steen had a five-point night with a hat trick and two assists to lead Toronto to the lopsided victory.

Wayne Primeau had a goal and an assist for Boston, which has been outscored, 20-3, in its last three games and has allowed 28 goals in its past five contests.

Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas was victimized by odd-man rushes all night long, and let in eight goals on 31 shots before being pulled in the third period. Philippe Sauve came on in relief and allowed two more goals on eight shots.

The Flyers, who are last in the NHL with just 26 points, hope to get back on track this afternoon, after losing Thursday's game at Madison Square Garden. Martin Straka provided all the offense for New York as his sixth career hat trick helped the Rangers down Philadelphia, 3-2.
