2012 NHL Playoffs, Flyers Vs. Penguins Game 2 Preview

Coming off an impressive comeback victory in game one of their best of seven series with the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Philadelphia Flyers will look to take a second straight road game on Friday, in the first round of the 2012 NHL Playoffs.

The Penguins jumped out to an early lead and led 3-0 after one period of play, but like they've done all season long, the Flyers roared back to tie the game, eventually winning in overtime. This marks the 21st time in 2011-12 that the Flyers have won a game when their opponent scores the first goal, including three games against the Penguins.

With the win, the Flyers stole home ice advantage, which is huge because the Penguins own the best home record in the Eastern Conference.
