    End of 2nd: Chicago Blackhawks 2, Philadelphia Flyers 0 Blackhawks lead series 1-0 No sooner had I finished published the last update, extolling how the Flyers were back to normal thanks to the out of control nature of Dan Carcillo and the great performance by Michael Leighton, before the Chicago Blackhawks unleashed their fury upon…

    2nd period: Chicago Blackhawks 0, Philadelphia Flyers 0 Blackhawks lead series 1-0 Peter Laviolette decided to put Dan Carcillo back in the lineup in an effort to get the Flyers back to playing the style of hockey that was so successful for them in the first three series of the playoffs. After 30 minutes, I…

  6. Once again, the ice is an issue in Chicago

    May 30, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    If these games were being played in California, Florida or Texas then I could see how the ice conditions could become a major story. Yet the Stanley Cup finals will be in Chicago and Philadelphia, not exactly two cities you think of being hot and having issues keeping the ice is good shape. Yet that’s…

  7. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals: Michael Leighton to start in Game 2

    May 30, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    After Peter Laviolette decided to pull Michael Leighton in last night’s game, despite the Flyers being down just a goal in the 2nd period in a game that was obviously not a ‘normal’ Stanley Cup game, you knew that most of the news today would center around whether Leighton or Brian Boucher would start today.…

  8. Pronger: Flyers need to be more physical

    May 30, 2010, 5:19 PM EDT

    Chris Pronger met with the media today after the Flyers practice, and as always he attracted the biggest media throng of all the players on the team. He covered a number of topics, but what was most interesting to me was what he had to say about Dustin Byfuglien. The matchup between Byfuglien and Pronger…

  9. Laviolette not revealing plans for goaltenders in Game 2

    May 30, 2010, 4:10 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Earlier today I gave my guess as to what Peter Laviolette would do with his goaltender situation heading into Game 2. Turns out, we’re going to have to wait a day to find out ourselves. After the Flyers’ practice today, Laviolette was not giving any hints as to what direction he might be going. “We…

  10. 2010 NHL Stanley Cup Finals: How loud was it in Chicago?

    May 30, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Forget the fact that just three or four years ago, the United Center was nearly abandoned by Chicago Blackhawks fans. Now that ownership has changed and has actually worked to bring fans back to the arena, Chicago has become one hell of an example of just how crazed hockey fans can be. The United Center…

  11. Antti Niemi still confident after shaky performance

    May 30, 2010, 2:22 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Antti Niemi had just as shaky a game as Michael Leighton did in the first two periods of last night’s game, with one subtle difference: he stayed in the game and made the big saves when his team needed them the most. It’s also interesting to see how one team pulls their goaltender after five…

  12. Will it be Leighton or Boucher in Game 2?

    May 30, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Before the Flyers hold their practice this afternoon and we get a hint of what Laviolette may do with his goaltenders in Game 2 — or we aren’t told anything at all — I figured we could go ahead and debate whether the Flyers should turn back to Michael Leighton. Leighton allowed five goals on…

  13. Laviolette not focusing on "controversial" goal

    May 30, 2010, 11:41 AM EDT

    There were many positives for the Philadelphia Flyers to build on from their Game 1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. They dominated play for the first half of the game and surprised Chicago and the hockey world with a surprising 3-2 lead after the first period. Furthermore, they showed why they got to this point…

  14. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 1: Should Leighton have stayed in the game?

    May 29, 2010, 11:31 PM EDT

    I can understand Peter Laviolette pulling Michael Leighton after he allowed five goals on 20 shots. His team was playing horribly sloppy, there was absolutely no crispness for the Flyers and the only reason the game wasn’t a disaster was because the Chicago Blackhawks weren’t doing much better on their end. I understand, but I’m…

  15. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 1: Blackhawks victorious in wild, sloppy affair

    May 29, 2010, 10:57 PM EDT

    Chicago Blackhawks 6, Philadelphia Flyers 5 Blackhawks lead series 1-0 This was not a pretty game. It may have been entertaining, but I’m having a hard time thinking of the last time I witnessed a Stanley Cup finals game that was played this sloppy by both teams. The difference between the two teams was that…

  16. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals: Byfuglien vs. Pronger the battle to watch

    May 29, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    One of the biggest (literally) reasons for the Blackhawks’ success against the Canucks and the Sharks was forward/defenseman/forward Dustin Byfuglien. The large and seemingly unmovable Byfuglien has scored eight goals in the postseason, including one in each of the past five games. In the Hawks’ four-game sweep of the Sharks, he had the game-winning goal…

    During his press conference today in front of a horde of NHL media, Gary Bettman covered a number of topics. One of the bigger and surprising revelations was that the NHL salary cap could raise as much as $2 million next season. There was thought that the cap would either stay the same or could…

  20. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals: Michael Leighton's long journey back to Chicago

    May 28, 2010, 12:59 PM EDT

    Michael Leighton’s journey to become a starting goaltender in the Stanley Cup finals is nothing short of amazing. Since being drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks, he’s spent time with the Buffalo Sabres, Anaheim Ducks, Nashville Predators, Montreal Canadiens and the Carolina Hurricanes. Many times he was claimed off waivers, as he was deemed expendable by…

Known as much for their relentless physicality, punishing attitudes and willingness to drop…
