Devils Vs. Flyers, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 4: New Jersey Up 3-2 After 2nd Period

The New Jersey Devils are up 3-2 over the Philadelphia Flyers after two periods during Game 4 of their Eastern Conference series during 2012 NHL Playoffs on Sunday night. They should arguably be up by much more after outshooting the Flyers 16-5 during the period. Regardless, they own the lead for now thanks to a goal by Dainius Zubrus late in the period.

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.
