2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 6: All tied up at 1st intermission


Niemi8.jpgPhiladelphia Flyers 1, Chicago Blackhawks 1

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.
