The Philadelphia Flyers take a 1-0 lead in Game 2 of their Easter Conference semifinal against the New Jersey Devils after the first period on Tuesday night. Ilya Bryzgalov looked like his peak regular season self, at least for the first 20 minutes, stopping all 13 shots faced. Martin Brodeur wasn't quite as sharp, giving up an early goal to Matt Read.
Brodeur committed too early to the ice as Read handled the puck in front of the net, and was slow to recover as the puck bounced around back to the left hand circle. The goal was Read's third of the playoffs.
Zach Parise and Marek Zidlicky both had three shots on goal during the period, but the Devils remain scoreless. The Flyers will start the second period on a two minute powerplay after Bryce Salvador was whistled late for interference.
