PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Danny Briere scored 4:36 into overtime to give the Philadelphia Flyers 4-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Sunday in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series
Briere had his second chance at the winner count minutes after an apparent goal was overturned on review because he kicked it into the net. He also scored in the second period.
He wasted no time making it up for the OT missed opportunity. He fired a slapper past Martin Brodeur for his seventh goal of the playoffs. Brodeur was screened in front by Philadelphia forward James van Riemsdyk.
Game 2 is Tuesday night in Philadelphia.
Van Riemsdyk and Claude Giroux also scored for the Flyers.
Zach Parise, Travis Zajac and Petr Sykora scored for the Devils.
