  1. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Ville Leino continues to roll

    Jun 5, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    For some players, it just takes a change of scenery to really unleash the talent everyone expected them to have. Others, it’s increased minutes or a different role on the team. For some, it’s both. For Ville Leino, it has been the postseason. Traded from the Red Wings to the Flyers in the middle of…

  2. Will Quenneville stick with his line changes?

    Jun 5, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    I can understand Joel Quenneville’s stubbornness. After all, they’ve been so successful all season and for the entire run of the playoffs and there’s no way that Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews would continue to struggle together. Yet for the first three games, the top line of Kane, Toews and Byfuglien weren’t just ineffective —…

  3. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Michael Leighton growing more confident

    Jun 5, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    I can forgive him the two goals in the third period. One came on a dastardly tip-in on a 5-on-3 and the other was a fluky, bouncing goal that careened off two players and over his pad. Until that point in the game, and even after the Chicago Blackhawks had pulled within 4-3 late in…

  4. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Mike Richards finally steps up

    Philadelphia Flyers 5, Chicago Blackhawks 3 Series tied 2-2 Despite how the rest of the team has been playing, if the Philadelphia Flyers had any hope of tying this series and eventually going on to win the Stanley Cup, then they would need their captain to step up and raise the level of his game.…

  6. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Ville Leino leaves with injury

    Jun 4, 2010, 8:40 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    He’s been the surprise of the postseason fort he Flyers, and one of the main reasons the team has been so successful without their top line performing. Yet there’s some bad news coming, potentially. The Flyers were in the midst of a nifty transition from defense through the neutral zone, when Brian Campbell caught Leino…

  7. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Hawks talk about 3rd period struggles

    Jun 4, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Chicago Blackhawks may be leading this series 2-1, with a good chance to head back to Chicago with a chance to clinch the Stanley Cup, but the Philadelphia Flyers have the momentum. After walking away from a sloppy Game 1 confident that they can keep up with the talented and deep Blackhawks, the Flyers…

  8. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Which team is feeling the pressure?

    Jun 4, 2010, 4:15 PM EDT

    Judging by some of the questions the players are being asked, combined with the overall atmosphere that exists today around the Wachovia Center, and you would think the Flyers were the ones with the lead in this series. The Flyers have been able to keep winning on the strength of their resiliency and ability to…

  9. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Flyers mum on van Riemsdyk's status

    Jun 4, 2010, 2:59 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Seeing the demeanor of both James van Riemsdyk and Dan Carcillo after this morning skate — combined with the fact that Carcillo was benched in the third period Wednesday night — speculation was fueled that JVR would be back in the lineup tonight. Just don’t ask Peter Laviolette about it. “Good try. We don’t talk…

  10. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Flyers not worried about top line's struggles

    Jun 4, 2010, 2:27 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The top line of the Philadelphia Flyers have not had a good series against the Hawks, but the rest of the team isn’t really all that worried about it. After all, the Flyers survived until the third round without leading scorer Jeff Carter. Simon Gagne’s return in the second round helped spark the Flyers’ historic…

  11. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Will Carcillo be a scratch?

    Jun 4, 2010, 11:29 AM EDT

    Coach Peter Laviolette put Dan Carcillo into the lineup in Game 2 in an effort to give his team an infusion of energy and physicality early in the game. After Carcillo spent the first period going absolutely crazy on the ice, including one heck of a hit on his own teammate, he was limited in…

  12. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 3: Giroux perfect example of Flyers' resiliency

    Jun 3, 2010, 12:45 AM EDT

    If we didn’t know it before, then we sure as heck know it now: the Philadelphia Flyers are one of the most the resilient teams we’ve ever seen in the postseason. At the heart of this team is a group of determined forwards, who may not be the biggest stars in the NHL and certainly…

    Jun 2, 2010, 10:56 PM EDT

    Welcome to another live chat on Pro Hockey Talk. We’re going to be doing things a bit differently this time around, as tonight we have a couple of special guests joining us for the chat. Bob Sturm, of 1310 The Ticket in Dallas, Texas, will (hopefully) be joining to give us some of his expert…

  14. Don't worry Flyers fans, the Hair Man is back

    Jun 2, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    It’s been four long years, but the Hair Man is back in town. Bill Page of Wilmington, Delaware, known amongst the Philadelphia faithful as “Hair Man”, spent ten years as a Flyers season ticket holder before having to take a bit of a sabbatical four years ago. Now that the Flyers are in the Stanley…

  15. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 3: Blackhawks not worried about Wachovia atmosphere

    Jun 2, 2010, 5:29 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    One of the more interesting questions asked of the Blackhawks today before tonight’s game concerned their preparation and readiness for the raucous and sometimes violent Flyers crowd that will be out in full force. It was a great question, and certainly topical considering the game tonight is in Philadelphia, but one I just don’t think…

  16. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 3: Flyers not feeling any pressure

    Jun 2, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    If there was one thing to take away from this morning’s skate, is that the Philadelphia Flyers are nowhere near panic mode. They looked calm, confident and focused and according to them, they aren’t feeling the pressure. They are down 2-0 against Chicago, and a loss tonight would put them in the dreaded 3-0 hole.…

  17. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 3: Does Pronger get away with too much?

    Jun 2, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    Chris Pronger does not have a great reputation. He’s been suspended multiple times in the past, and not always for just a bad hit — the leg-stomping incident is about as bad as you can get. That he ended up playing for the Flyers is only fitting. He was brought in to provide not only…

  18. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 3: Yes, Hossa is valuable to Hawks

    Jun 2, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    If the Chicago Blackhawks had lost the first two games of this series, or even split them, then we might be talking about how Marian Hossa is undoubtedly cursed. This is his third straight Stanley Cup finals, and he’s the first player to appear in three straight series with three different teams. He was on…

  19. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 3: Andrew Ladd out tonight, still "day to day"

    Jun 2, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Everyone’s eyebrows raised a bit today at the morning skate for the Chicago Blackhacks when Andrew Ladd skated for the first time with the team. He looked fine, didn’t seem to be all that limited and immediately we started to debate on who might come out for the Hawks if Ladd could play. The first…

  20. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 3: Flyers taking aim at Antti Niemi

    Jun 2, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Philadelphia Flyers were able to put significant pressure on the Blackhawks and Antti Niemi in the third period, getting one goal off of 15 shots. Yet after the game, the Flyers didn’t feel as if they truly tested Niemi and that while his play was good they never forced him to make truly miraculous…

  21. Don Maloney named NHL GM of the Year

    Jun 2, 2010, 11:16 AM EDT

    To the surprise of absolutely no one, Don Maloney has been named the NHL General Manager of the Year. Here’s the press release: PHILADELPHIA (June 2, 2010) — Don Maloney of the Phoenix Coyotes is the 2009-10 winner of the NHL General Manager of the Year Award, the National Hockey League announced today. Maloney accepted…

    It’s too bad we couldn’t show these uncensored. I can only imagine the awesomeness that was the oral battle between Dan Carcillo and Adam Burish tonight.  

  23. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals: Video – Carcillo's rocky return

    Jun 1, 2010, 12:45 AM EDT

    The Flyers put Dan Carcillo into the lineup to try and give the team a bit of a different edge, some attitude and some energy after the Flyers got away from what they do best in Game 1. After coming out of the gates with his hockey pants on fire, Carcillo spent most of the…

  24. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals: Blackhawks and Flyers still not at their best

    Jun 1, 2010, 12:15 AM EDT

    This has been a very entertaining series to watch so far, especially considering some of the bad blood that is developing between these two teams. Still, it’s sad to see both teams fail to play their best two games in a row. The Chicago Blackhawks are still waiting for some kind of production from Toews,…

  25. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 2: Once again, Niemi the difference for Hawks

    May 31, 2010, 11:47 PM EDT

    Before the postseason started, there were many early favorites for who would be the recipient of the Conn Smythe at the end of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Of course, these would be dependent on the rest of their team as well, but I doubt that anyone had Antti Niemi at the top of their pool…
