Briere's hat trick lifts Flyers over Senators in OT

Danny Briere completed his fifth career 2 win over the Ottawa Senators in the opener of a and-home series.

Briere, whose power-play goal tied the game 2-2 at the 9:12 mark of the third period, emerged with the puck from behind the net and tried to jam it in at the right post. The initial attempt was thwarted by Ottawa's Craig Anderson, but Briere backhanded his own rebound between the goaltender's pads.
