Devils Vs. Flyers, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 4: Philadelphia Outshot 16-5 In 2nd Period, Down 3-2

The Philadelphia Flyers are down 3-2 to the New Jersey Devils after two periods played in Sunday's Game 4 of their Eastern Conference series. They should arguably be down by even more, however, after being outshot 16-5 in the the second period. Despite a bounty of chances, the Devils were unable to break through on the scoreboard until Dainius Zubrus' goal late in the stanza.

For the game, the Devils now hold a 32-12 advantage in shots on goal. Ilya Bryzgalov is doing his best in net for the Flyers, as a normally staunch defensive Philadelphia team repeatedly gets exploited by a New Jersey team playing much more like an underdog despite holding a 2-1 series lead.

The Devils will start the third period on a powerplay thanks to an illegal check by Claude Giroux on Zubrus with four seconds left in the second.
