Wow another shutout; great job Flyers. I'm guessing Halak starts and uses home ice to get his confidence back and a win for Montreal in game 3 wouldn't surprise me at all. Then again it's been a surprising playoff year so far; anything can happen.

I could live with that matchup. Two teams on fire, hustling for the puck. Probably won't see much crisp passing and play development in a final like that as much as random turnovers with superb goaltending being the deciding factor. Blackhawks are looking very good heading off to home ice.
No hockey tonight
Yeah, i realized that when i only saw the Flyers game. I'll be busy tomorrow too, i'll have to catch the highlights...Sigh.
The OT was intense. Great heads up play by Bolland to pass it out to an untouched Big Byff skating B-line towards Nabakov. The Sharks had many changes to take the lead at the end of the 3rd but Niemi was the difference. He played out of his mind and did everything he needed to do. The Hawks are looking real good especially with a 3-0 lead. But nothing has been safe so the Hawks need to keep the pressure up.
Leighton is on an impressive streak. Since Boucher went down, the back up has been an upgrade between the pipes. Is this going to be one of those years where the hot goalie steals the cup?!
But now, Montreal is in their favorite position, down 3-1 in the series, can they make a run again? haha I'd like to say no, but they've proved everyone wrong so far going down 3-1 against the Caps and Pens.
