2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 6: All tied up at 1st intermission
Philadelphia Flyers 1, Chicago Blackhawks 1
Blackhawks lead series 3-2
Well, the trend of the Flyers starting games poorly continues.
The Flyers were outshot 17-7 and their supposed MVP-favorite took two bad penalties in the first period, as Chris Pronger watched the Hawks take a 1-0 lead while he was sitting in the box. To add insult Dustin Byfuglien, the man Pronger has done so well against overall, scored the goal.
Yet, as they always do, the Flyers found a way to bounce back.
Scott Hartnell tied the game up with a power play goal of his own, after he fought off a brutal Duncan Keith slash to slam a rebound under Antti Niemi.
The Flyers need to go back to the locker room, take a deep breath and forget about what just happened. It’s a new game now, a fresh start.
For the Hawks, they have to forget their frustration as once again the Flyers have fought back to tie the game at home.
It’s a hard hitting, fast game so far. The final 40 minutes should be incredible.
