Thursday night’s game between the Philadelphia Flyers and the New Jersey Devils from the Wells Fargo Center in "The City of Brotherly Love," has come to a close.
So too, has the consecutive win streak of the Orange & Black.
It was all tied up at two apiece heading into the third period. Maxime Talbot’s wristshot put the Flyers ahead at the 2:37 mark, but the Devils answered late in the period when David Clarkson (assisted by Patrik Elias) backhanded one in from seven feet out.
Time expired before either team could steal one and it was more of the same in overtime.
That led to the shootout, when Devils left wing Patrik Elias backhanded one past Sergei Bobrovsky for all the marbles.
New Jersey improves to 4-5-1 with the victory while Philadelphia drops to 7-4-1 in defeat.
The New Jersey Devils have skated into the Wells Fargo Center tonight (Nov. 3, 2011) to take on the Philadelphia Flyers and at the end of the second period, we’re all tied up a two apiece.
After a scoreless first period, Zac Rinaldo broke open a 0-0 tie by wristing one in at 2:28 of the second stanza, thanks to an assist by Sean Couturier. Claude Giroux (assisted by Jaromir Jagr and Andreas Lilja) put the Flyers up two-zip just over six minutes later.
The Devils wouldn’t go quietly, however, as Adam Henrique and Ilya Kovalchuk gave Zach Parise the puck only to watch him backhand it in at the 8:59 mark. New Jersey tied it up shortly thereafter when Adam Henrique (assisted by Ilya Kovalchuk) found the net from 12 feet away.
The Flyers are hoping to make it three straight with a big win at home, but the Devils aren’t making it easy.
