The Philadelphia Flyers picked up their efforts on both the offensive and defensive ends of the ice in the second period of Game 3 on Thursday night. They outshot the New Jersey Devils 9-4, and for their efforts were rewarded with a Matt Carle goal early in the period to tie the game at two goals apiece. Heading into the 3rd period, the score is now knotted up, 2-2.
Martin Brodeur struggled to see around a screen set by Claude Giroux, giving him little chance against the slapshot to the top right corner of the net from the middle of the left circle. Meanwhile, Ilya Bryzgalov was allowed to sit back relatively unchallenged for once.
