Video: Flyers Vs. Devils, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 1: Danny Briere Wins It 4-3 For Flyers In Overtime

Danny Briere made the most of the overtime period in game one of the second round of the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, scoring one goal that was reversed and another that stuck. The Flyers went on the power play 30 seconds into the overtime period, and Briere appeared to have the game won right there with a goal from just in front of the net. However, replay quickly showed that he had missed the puck with his stick and kicked it in:

The call was reversed and play continued. Briere got another chance at 4:36 of the overtime period, and this time he would make sure it stuck. Getting a pass near the blueline, Briere took a long shot and rifled it past Martin Brodeur, sealing game one for the Flyers.

It was Briere's second goal of the game and his seventh in the playoffs. James van Riemsdyk and Claude Giroux had the other two goals for the Flyers, while Petr Sykora, Zach Parise and Travis Zajac picked up goals for the Devils. The Flyers managed to stay out of the penalty box for the most part, collecting only three two minute minors to the Devils' six. The series returns to Philadelphia for game two, where the Flyers hope to capture another extremely rare example of a hockey coach not looking displeased:
