Briere said of Giroux, the game's top star, “Big plays from him again tonight. You can’t teach what he does. He’s been a guy we’ve been able to rely on. For some reason we have that chemistry when we’re together on the ice. We think alike and we know where each other are going to be all the time. He’s a player that’s fun to play with and you have to be ready to get the puck from him every time.” Mike Richards added two assists. The Flyers were 2-for-6 on PPs while New Jersey was 0-for-8. The Devils committed 13 turnovers to the Flyers' one. Chants of "Booosh" and "Let's Go Flyers' rang throughout the Prudential Center. Ilya Kovalchuk said "We've got a great team but they just outplayed us, totally. They were missing a couple of guys (Jeff Carter and Simon Gagne) but were still able to do it. We did not deserve to win." Boucher earned his first playoff shutout since April, 16, 2000, ending a streak of 10 years and six days — the second longest in NHL history, missing Jim Henry’s mark (1942-52) by just four days.

NJ was led by Ilya Kovalchuk (2-4-6). The Flyers' PP was 8-for-29 and the PK killed 28 of 32.
I bought a ticket for this game on Stubhub and I'm nervous about it's validity; it's a great seat for a fraction of the face value. So, hopefully it's legit and I'll be able to give a post game analysis.
According to tom gulitti (Devils reporter):
Looks like Hedberg and not Brodeur in for tomorrow.
Although Devils coach John MacLean said he had not decided his complete lineup, Greene and backup goaltender Johan Hedberg both said they believed they will be making the trip to Philadelphia Tuesday. MacLean said that Hedberg and Martin Brodeur would not play in the same game at the start of the preseason, so that means Brodeur will stay home Tuesday. That fits with Brodeur’s usual preseason routine, He usually doesn’t play road games at the start of the preseason.
