Flyers Vs. Devils, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 1: Tied 3-3 At The End Of Regulation, Game 1 Heads To Overtime

The Philadelphia Flyers continued their aggressive play in the third period, out shooting the New Jersey Devils 15 to 4 in the period and now 29 to 22 overall. Despite their advantage in shots, both teams scored one goal in the period and the score remains tied at the end of regulation, 3-3.

The Flyers scored first in the third, taking advantage of a hooking penalty called on Andy Greene. Claude Giroux made the most of it, winning a faceoff in the Devil's offensive zone, drifting towards the opposite faceoff circle, and then ripping a one-timer off a pass from Kimmo Timonen. The Devils would get another power play later on, when Petr Sykora was called for holding, but they would fail to capitalize.

The Devils came back in the 11th minute, when Sykora, making up for his earlier penalty, got open on a breakaway and put one through Bryzgalov's five hole to even the score. That's where things stood when regulation ended, and if the Flyers can keep up their pressure in overtime they have a good chance at taking game one of this series.
