Why on Earth would Game 3 start any different than Games 1 and 2? It didn't. Jordan Staal put the Penguins on the board first. The Flyers would respond with the next three goals. It would continue to be back and forth as the Flyers made it 5-3.
Pittsburgh cut it to 5-4 but the Flyers would tack on three more goals for a commanding 8-4 victory and a 3-0 series lead.
