2012 NHL Playoffs, Flyers Vs. Devils: Flyers Power Play Struggling Through First Two Games

The powerful Philadelphia Flyers power play has slowed considerably during the first two outings of the second round of the 2012 NHL Playoffs. The Flyers have converted on just one out of 11 man-up situations while playing to a 1-1 series tie.

"We know we have to be better on the power play," Claude Giroux told reporters after his team went 0-5 on power plays during a 4-1 Game 2 defeat. "The power play's been good for us all season, we just have to keep doing the same things we've been doing -- shoot pucks, just have to win those battles. We're five-on-four, so we have to find a way to win those battles."

Added Scott Hartnell, "We're going to have to do a better job of entries, setting the puck up and -- I think when we have a setup moving around, they give us some time to make plays. Just that initial break-in, we have to get things set up, get to the top and get pucks on net."
