Game 3 Flyers Vs. Devils

With the dramatic conclusion of game 2 the series has become tied and expectations are higher than ever for game 3. It’s not disappointing anyone. The Atlantic Division showdown began with the Flyers drawing first blood in the 1st period (Schenn). I would like to extend a suggestion to Philadelphia, maybe let the  other team score first. Against both Jersey and Pittsburgh Philly is undefeated when the opposing team scores first.  The Devils quickly responded by scoring 2 goals of their own (Elias,Kovalchuk) within 20 seconds of each other.

In my opinion the Devils came out rather sluggish to begin the 2nd period. The Flyers quickly tied the game up 4:44 into the 2nd (Carle). The Devils picked things up soon after the goal scored. By the end of the 2nd period one could easily see that the Devils were more emotionally into the game when compared to the Flyers. Much of this is probably due to the poor work of the referee; making two poor calls against the Devils. The First of which was a hi-sticking call on Adam Larsonn, who very clearly very touched Danny Briere. The second was a delay of game call against Kovalchuk. I can understand the hi-stick mistake, but come on the puck was clearly deflected out by the Flyers.

It’s the cup and it’s 2-2 going into the 3rd
