There was no way Loui Eriksson could have been a better player than he was Saturday.

Eriksson filled in for Jarome Iginla (lower-body injury) on the first line for the second time in three games. Eriksson assisted on four of the goals in the Bruins’ 5-2 win over the Flyers. The right wing led all team forwards with 20:29 of ice time. The first-year Bruin landed a game-high seven pucks on goal. As usual, Eriksson was on the ice alongside Chris Kelly and Patrice Bergeron to defend a six-on-five end-of-game situation.

All this from someone who could be the No. 3 right wing when the Bruins open the playoffs.
