The Flyers came out of the gate hopping. They were buzzing for about seven minutes after Matt Read scored to give them a 1-0 lead.
The last time the Flyers only had two shots in a playoff period was also against the Devils, in the 2010 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. They had two shots in the third period of a 2-1 win in Game 1.
The Flyers were 0-for-5 on the power play and are now 1-for-11 in the series. It was the first game in this postseason that the Flyers didn’t pick up a power play goal.
The Devils had more shots blocked by the Flyers (23) than the Flyers had shots on goal (20).
It was one of those odd loses where, after the game, there was nothing to talk about. The Devils were just better. After outshooting the Devils in the final 50 minutes of Game 1, 36-15, the Flyers were outshot 35-20 in Game 2.
Two different teams.

Derrick Rose looks on as the Sixers whoop the Bulls, 109-92.
Watch as Andre Iguodala posterizes Luol Deng:
I suppose this is where we have to tell everyone to relax. They’re not going to beat the Bulls.
They beat the Braves for the eighth straight time and everyone was so excited, especially this chick, who showed all of Philadelphia her panties. [But since a few out-of-work zealots and one Gawker columnist had a problem with the photo, here's a link to a Deadspin post of something similar.]
