PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Danny Briere scored 4:36 into overtime to give the Philadelphia Flyers 4-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Sunday in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series Briere had his second chance at the winner count minutes after an apparent goal was overturned on review because he kicked it into the net. He also scored in the second period. He wasted no time making up for the missed opportunity, firing a slapper past Martin Brodeur for his seventh goal of the playoffs. Brodeur was screened in front by Philadelphia forward James van Riemsdyk. Game 2 is Tuesday night in Philadelphia. Van Riemsdyk and Claude Giroux also scored for the Flyers.

Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette, perhaps, said it best after his team's 4-3 overtime win over the New Jersey Devils Sunday: "There are people who answer the bell."
Danny Briere is one of those people.
Playing on a new line and under immense playoff pressure, Briere shined Sunday, scoring two goals, including the overtime game winner to give Philadelphia a 1-0 lead...
from Scott Burnside of ESPN, Holmgren did not get a nod for the newly created GM of the Year Award, but he should have. In fact, it’s mind boggling that he did not, given the moves he has made and the bright future he has charted for the Philadelphia Flyers. Not that he has given it a moment’s thought. Holmgren is, instead, focused on the pursuit of the trophy that has eluded...

A pretty exciting game to watch on a Sunday afternoon.
The Flyers had a rough first period after a lengthy break, but picked it up after that.
The Devils need to be much more responsible in their defensive zone in order to compete with Philadelphia.
Here is the OT goal by Danny Briere…
added 6:33pm, Watch below the Briere disallowed goal in OT, I thought the correct call...
Well Philly fans, the puck is in your rink, what needs to be done for the Flyers to rebound from this game?
The Flyers looked great at the start of the game, then they could not generate any offense at all.
2 shots in the 2nd period and 9 in the 3rd for a total of 20 for the game just won’t cut it.
New Jersey fans, I am sure you are satisfied with the way the game played-out tonight.
The Flyers, despite another slow start in the 1st period on Sunday afternoon, were able to defeat the NJ Devils in overtime of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, 4-3.
Danny Briere has truly lived up to his title of "Mr. Playoffs" yet again this year, netting 2 goals (the Flyers' first and GW in OT) en route to the Flyers victory.
In case you missed the game...
Danny Briere netted two (or three, if you count the one he kicked in) goals in the Flyers' 4-3 OT win against the New Jersey Devils in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
The Philadelphia Flyers thought they won Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals twice. But in the Stanley Cup playoffs, you only need to win once.
Danny Briere, as usual, netted a couple of goals...
The Philadelphia Flyers played a solid first period on Tuesday night, and then, quite simply, got their asses handed to them the rest of the way. The New Jersey Devils went on to defeat the listless Flyers by a final score of 4-1, evening up their semifinal conference series.

from Frank Seravalli of Frequent Flyers, If you feel like overtime games have been ending quickly, you’re not alone.
Through the first 53 games of this Stanley Cup playoff season, 18 have gone to overtime (33.9 percent).
The overtime in 8 out of those 18 games (44 percent) hasn’t even made it past the three-minute mark. Fans barely have enough time to grab a beer during the...
