Devils fall 2-1 to Flyers, dropping first at home of a best of seven series
The devils failed to take advantage of numerous penalties tonight, as what was an ugly power play in the regular season, was horrible tonight, going 0 for 5. This included a horrible display on a third period, 4 minute power play received for a double minor high sticking.
Despite keeping the Flyers to only 14 shots, this Devils team was so bad, they were getting booed by the end of the second period in their own rink.
If the Devils are going to advance, they need to cash in on their goal scoring oppurtunities. Ilya Kovalchuk was acquired with the intention of being able to score more in the playoffs. Parise is going to need to shine as well. Travis Zajac's late third period goal was the only real highlight of the night.
