This loss definitely hurts, because it seems like the Flyers have been salvaging a lot of point when losing thanks to OT losses recently. These are a big 2 points for the Devils to gain and now that sour taste will stay in the Flyers' mouths for 4 days until they play the Penguins on Saturday.
And all this on a night where Nick Grossmann registered a goal! That's right, it was Grossmann's first goal in 76 games and 3rd in 298 games. It came in the first minute of the second period to tie it at 1-1 on a slapshot from the top of the zone. It somehow got through Brodeur's five-hole from over 50 feet away. That was the only goal Brodeur let in tonight, saving 30 other shots.
Travis Zajac and Jaromir Jagr scored the goals for the Devils, Jagr's being the game-decider (though it probably shouldn't have been).
Note: Chris VandeVelde played in place of Zac Rinaldo, who sat out with an upper-body injury. He is day-to-day. The Flyers drop the season series to the Devils 1-2-1. Next game is Saturday at 1 at home vs. the Penguins, part of a back-to-back with the second being in Pittsburgh Sunday.
