2012 NHL Playoffs, Flyers Vs. Devils: Reaction To Philadelphia Being Taken Apart In Five Games

The scores of these games will indicate a close series. Sometimes, as in this case, the scoreboard lies.

The New Jersey Devils destroyed the Philadelphia Flyers in five games, taking care of business including the final act in the Wells Fargo Center.

The match-up was epitomized by the game-winning goal on Tuesday night, when Ilya Bryzgalov too his time and then played the puck carelessly into David Clarkson. Of course, the frozen rubber bounced off his stick and in, the Flyers never again to see a tie game.

Clarkson was hustling the whole way, making something happen. Bryzgalov was lazy and cost his team.

"I saw him coming and I wanted to put the puck in the corner for Kimmo to start back up," Bryzgalov said. "It's a bad bounce unfortunately because it could have gone anywhere -- in the corner, higher, lower, but it goes straight between the legs," according to NHL.com.

Philly now goes home for the second straight year in the Semifinals. It's a tough pill to swallow not only because of the defeat, but of the nature in which it was dealt.
