Hawks Rewind: Blackhawks vs. Flyers Game 1 of 2010 Stanley Cup Final


Saturday night at 7 p.m. you can watch the 2010 Blackhawks take on the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on NBC Sports Chicago.

The stage was set as the Hawks made their first trip to the big dance since 1992.

Fans at the United Center took in a sloppy, but exciting 11-goal series opener. 

The Blackhawks chased Flyers goalie — and former Chicago netminder — Michael Leighton when he got yanked by Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette following Troy Brouwer's goal to give the Hawks a 5-4 lead with 4:42 left in the second period. 

It was Brouwer's second goal of the game. He had tied it 1-1 at 7:46 of the first period.

Philly's top line of Simon Gagne, Jeff Carter and Mike Richards was held without a point, as was Chicago's top trio of Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Dustin Byfuglien, ending Toews' Blackhawks-record 13-game point streak

The Flyers didn't take a single penalty in the contest.

Dave Bolland scored his sixth postseason goal for the Hawks, Patrick Sharp his eighth, Kris Versteeg grabbed a goal and Tomas Kopecky scored the game-winning goal at 8:25 of the third period for the 6-5 final score.

Antti Niemi made 27 saves for Chicago. 

"A lot of action, a shootout at the O.K. Corral," Joel Quenneville, then head coach of the Blackhawks, told reporters after the game.

It wasn't pretty, but the Hawks took to a 1-0 series lead over the Flyers with Game 2 also set for the Windy City.
