Bruins’ choke is bad news for Ducks.

The Boston Bruins have completed the rare Double 4-3 Choke Job.

They led the Phildelphia Flyers 3 games to 0 in the series, but lost three straight to force a Game 7 Friday night in Boston. Leading 3-0 in the game, Philadelphia scored the next four goals to win the game — and the series — 4-3.

It’s just the third time that an NHL team has lost the first three games of the series and still won.

It’s bad news for the Ducks, who are in line to receive Philadelphia’s first-round draft pick in June. By virtue of the Flyers’ win, that pick cannot be higher than 27th. The Ducks already own the 12th selection in the draft.
