Sidney Crosby started the game off right, scoring in the first 15 seconds of the game! Just minutes later, Dupuis adds another point before Talbot puts the Flyers on the board. And the fans couldn't help but notice a hard hit made by Letang. Paul Martin rounds off the first period, making it 3-1 heading into the first intermission.
