Flyers Take Game 3

In brief:

Philly jumped out to the early 1-0 lead to close out the first period but Chicago managed to tie it up in the second thanks to a Duncan Keith goal early on in the second.  Scotty Hartnell made it 2-1 and it looked like Philly would hold the lead heading into the third until Brent Sopel scored with just over two minutes remaining in the second to tie it all at two.

The third period started off with some fast scoring from Chicago, as Patrick Kane netted one less than three minutes in to give Chi-town the 3-2 lead.  Not to be outdone, Philly came back 20 seconds later and scored on a Ville Leino goal.  It looked like it was going to be one of "those" periods.  That is, of course, until it stayed stagnant for the remainder of the period and carried into overtime.

Six minutes in, in front of the home crowd, Claude Giroux tipped one in past Niemi to seal the deal and clinch G3 for the Flyers

Now game four takes on a whole new meaning.  Should Philly win, it's back to Chicago with the series tied at two a piece.  If Chicago wins, it presents a great chance for the Blackhawks to win the cup in front of the home crowd, something that hasn't been done since 2007 when the Ducks beat Ottawa in Game 6 at the Honda Center.
