NHL Playoffs 2010: Philly Fights Back

After going down 2-0 in the NHL Stanley Cup Final Series, The Philadelphia Flyers are back in business winning game 3 in overtime 4-3 over the Chicago Blackhawks. The series is now 2-1 in favor of the Blackhawks, but the next game will stay in Philadelphia where the Flyers have won their last 6 games.


There’s a New Monster in Town

The big story of the Stanley Cup Finals so far is the ineffective play of the all-star line-up of Blackhawks Patrick Kane, Jonathon Toews and Dustin Byfuglien. Throughout the playoffs, Dustin has been a monster on the ice clearing the path to the net for Patrick and Jonathon. But since big-bruising-defenseman Chris Pronger of the Flyers has entered the rink, the Chicago top line has been totally stopped dead in their tracks. Chris is on the ice to shadow Dustin every shift, and Patrick and Jonathon have not been able to score.


Claude Explode!

The big goal for the Flyers came shortly into the 1st overtime period when Claude Giroux scored a deflection goal past Chicago goaltender Antti Niemi. Claude was named the 1st star of the game as he also scored two assists earlier in the game. Claude’s top performance couldn’t have come at a better time as all-star teammates Jeff Carter and Mike Richards and been almost invisible.


What’s in Store for Game 4

Expect a very violent hockey game in game 4 of these Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Blackhawks and Flyers have both beat out the top goal-scoring teams in the NHL because of their dominating size and physical brutality. So far the games have been hard-hitting, but you can expect more emotion and desperation in game 4. If Chicago wins, they will go up 3-1 and going to Chicago will make it tough for Philly to come back. But if the Flyers win… Watch out! All the momentum will be on their side.
