The Philadelphia Flyers were outshot by the New Jersey Devils 14-8 in the first period of Game 4 of their Eastern Conference series. Despite the disparity, they were able to take a 2-0 lead midway through the period before the Devils charged back to tie the game at 2-2 heading into the second period. Claude Giroux scored a shorthanded goal to give Philadelphia a big lead early.
It was Scott Hartnell who put the Flyers on the board with a powerplay goal, however. The Devils responded late in the period with goals by Petr Sykora and Marek Zidlicky. Zidlicky also has an assist on the night. Giroux has now scored eight goals this postseason.
