Flyers Vs. Devils, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 1: Score Tied 2-2 After 2 Periods

The Flyers are still behind on shots following two periods, but they outshot the Devils in the second and managed to make them count, and the score now stands tied, 2-2.

Danny Briere tied things at one at the opening of the eighth minute of the second period, taking a pass from Jakub Voracek and ending up on a clean breakaway, just flicking it past Brodeur.

James van Riemsdyk added another barely 30 seconds later, catching a perfect rebound off a shot from Erik Fustafsson, and sending a rocket of a shot past a tumbling, scrambling Martin Brodeur to give Phildaelphia their first lead of the game.

That lasted about five minutes, until Matt Carle took a hooking penalty, putting the Devils on the power play. Travis Zajac was quick to take advantage, putting one past Byzgalov with an assist from Zach Parise (his second point of the game) and Ilya Kovalchuk.

The Flyers are making Brodeur work, but he's doing everything he can to keep his team in it, including windmills and other assorted acrobatics.



We'll see if the Flyers can come up with some unconventional tactics of their own and take the lead in the third.
