Flyers Vs. Penguins, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 3: Philadelphia Leads, 6-4, After Second Period

The Philadelphia Flyers lead the Pittsburgh Penguins, 6-4, after two periods of play at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

After the teams combined for six goals in the first period, the scoring continued into the second period. The Flyers and Penguins each scored two goals in the second frame. The Penguins got goals from James Neal and Jordan Staal sandwiched around a goal from Matt Read for Philadelphia. Wayne Simmonds got the Flyers' two-goal lead back with this beauty of a power-play goal at the 19:14 mark of the period.


Pittsburgh kept Marc-Andre Fleury between the pipes even after the Simmonds goal. Fleury has allowed six goals on 28 shots. Ilya Bryzagalov has had a similarly rough outing by allowing four goals on just 24 shots. One of the odder goals he allowed was this one which came after a save:
