Devils Vs. Flyers, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 3: Flyers Can't Find Spark, Down 2-1 After 1st Period

The Philadelphia Flyers' listless offensive ways continues through the first period of Game 3 against the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night. The Devils outshot Flyers 14-to-7 through the first 20 minutes of the game.

Just like Game 2, the Flyers ended up on the board first despite their lack of offense. Brayden Schenn beat Martin Brodeur on a powerplay goal 6:08 into the period. New Jersey didn't wait long to respond however. Patrik Elias tied the game on powerplay goal at the 12:33 mark. Just 20 second later Ilya Kovalchuk stumped Ilya Bryzgalov on a wrister to the glove side.

Offensive struggles continue to plague the Flyers. Without an infusion of energy, Philadelphia is danger of falling down 2-1 in the series.
