Devils Vs. Flyers, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 3: New Jersey Leads 2-1 After 1st Period

The New Jersey Devils lead the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 after the first period in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series Thursday night. Continuing the trend from Game 2, the Devils have outhshot the Flyers drastically on the night, 14 to seven.

Just like Game 2, the Flyers ended up on the board first despite their listlessness on 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.
