Game Three Recap
Philadelphia dominated from the drop of the puck, outshooting the Devils 34-19, including 18-4 in the third period and overtime.

A big reason for the lack of production from New Jersey's big guns could be the game-high 31:03 minutes played by Chris Pronger.
Pronger had an assist, was plus-two, had four hits, two shots, and four blocked shots.

New Jersey had only seven shots on their five power plays.
Jeff Carter and Danny Briere were each held off the scoresheet but led the Flyers with six shots each.
