Flyers eager to shed “comeback kids” label
The Flyers needed another stirring rally to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 in overtime in the opening game of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. Philadelphia fell behind 3-0 in the first period before climbing back to take control of the best-of-7 series.
Briere praised his team’s resiliency but also knows the Flyers can’t afford to let Pittsburgh consistently jump out in front. The Penguins stressed they’re not panicking after losing outright for the first time this season after building a three-goal lead.
