2012 NHL Playoffs, Flyers Vs. Penguins: Philadelphia Closes The Gap After Two, 3-1

The Philadelphia Flyers found themselves buried under a 3-0 deficit after one period in their opening game of the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night. The Flyers tightened their defense and closed the gap with a second period goal to make it a 3-1 game after two periods of play.

Danny Briere put the Flyers on the board with just over six minutes into the second period. Brayden Schenn fed Briere the puck as he sped into the Penguins zone on a breakaway. Briere put the puck in the net with a compact wristshot.

Pittsburgh still had the advantage on the attack, putting 10 shots on net to the Flyers' seven. Philadelphia also killed two Pittsburgh power plays in the second frame.
