ANIMATED: Peter Laviolette, Flyers Fist Pump Their Way Into Game 2 Vs. Penguins

The Philadelphia Flyers won a spectacular playoff opener against the Pittsburgh Penguins Wednesday night, coming from three goals down to beat their cross-state rivals, 4-3, in overtime.

Their coach, Peter Laviolette, is a pretty fiery guy. He once punched his own player in the head during a timeout and, of course, just two weeks ago, he broke a stick over the glass on the very same CONSOL Energy Center bench he occupied during Game 1.

You can imagine, then, Laviolette's reaction when Jakub Voracek scored the game-winning goal less than three minutes into overtime. Hoooo boy, his reaction.
