BOSTON — David Krejci scored twice in the third period and the surging Boston Bruins beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-1 on Thursday night.

The Bruins extended their winning streak to five games and improve to 10-0 at home. They are one victory off the league mark of 11-0 to start the season, done by the 1963-64 Chicago Blackhawks and the 2021-22 Florida Panthers.

Boston can tie the record on Saturday at home against Chicago.

Linus Ullmark made 22 saves in goal for the Bruins (15-2 overall) for his 12th victory in 12 starts.

Tomas Nosek scored for the second straight game and Jake DeBrusk also had a goal to help the Bruins win their fifth straight and improve to 10-0 at home.

Owen Tippett scored on a power-play for Philadelphia, and Carter Hart made 28 saves. The Flyers have dropped five straight.

Tippett cut it to 2-1 midway through the third, but Krejci countered 16 seconds later.

The Boston product became the first American-born NHL coach to reach the mark. … The Bruins staged their annual Military Appreciation Night. The players commemorated the occasion by wearing camouflage jerseys during pregame warmups that were scheduled to be auctioned off to benefit the team’s charitable foundation.
