Players to watch

FLYERS: Center Claude Giroux

The shifty center has been stifled by rookie Adam Henrique, among others, and the Flyers need him to get untracked if they are going to even the series. Giroux has just one point in three games.

DEVILS: Goaltender Martin Brodeur

The Devils' future Hall of Famer can give his team a stranglehold on the series if he celebrates his 40th birthday with a win. He has a 2.39 goals-against average and .905 save percentage in the three games.

Three keys to the game


The Flyers need to show more passion and physicality than they have displayed in most of the series.


The Devils must continue to win faceoffs on the power play and not give the Flyers a lot of good looks with a man advantage.


The Flyers need their big guns to start producing. Giroux, Scott Hartnell, Jaromir Jagr, and Wayne Simmonds have combined for one goal in the series.
