Flyers Vs. Devils, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 5: Philadelphia Down 2-1 After 1st Period

The Philadelphia Flyers are down 2-1 after the first period of Tuesday night's Game 5 at the Wells Fargo Center against the New Jersey Devils. The Flyers started the game well, taking a 1-0 lead just past the seven minute mark when Maxime Talbot was able to put back a rebound set up by some nifty puck movement.

The Devils charged back afterwards, however, scoring two straight. New Jersey took the lead when Ilya Bryzgalov tried to clear the puck, but instead hit David Clarkson who deflected the puck into the net. The massive blunder could prove costly as Philadelphia tries to stave off elimination in the Eastern Conference semifinals of the 2012 NHL Playoffs.
