At 8 NM west of the bronc intersection notified ATC (ZBW) that we would be unable to make the restr and asked for relief. We were given a vector of 060 degrees initially and shortly after were told bos approach would be able to take us at a higher altitude and were cleared on course. We were also requested to give them the altitude first and then the airspeed (250 KTS/11000 ft). Arrival continued without incident.
