The Flyers didn't play an overtime Sunday.

They enjoyed one. They attacked one. They dominated one.

And that's why they defeated the New Jersey Devils, 4-3.

"Usually, in overtime, the word in the dressing room before going back on is, 'Whenever you have a chance to put the puck on net, you throw one on net,'" said Danny Briere after scoring the game-winning goal. "You never know what can happen --- a lucky bounce, whatever. You can try to crash the net and try to find a loose puck."

So the Flyers chose to play to win ... rather than playing not to lose. For that, they are 11 victories from a Stanley Cup.

Check out my column in the Daily Times and Monday, along with a reflection on the Flyers' slow starts.
