Tonight at 8 PM the Flyers and Blackhawks meet again for Game Two of the Stanley Cup Finals. If the series' first game was any indication of what we can expect for the remainder of the series, then I suppose we're in for yet another high-scoring affair.
Despite that evidence, I still feel tonight's game will be a bit more on the low scoring side of things. That's not to say that Friday's game wasn't exciting, but I think each team has a feel for the other after that first game and will come prepared to counter, rather just outright attack, a bit more this evening.
If Chicago wins tonight they take a commanding 2-0 lead on the series as it heads back to Philly. As many of us know, a 2-0 hole is not insurmountable, especially upon returning to home ice. The Flyers, of all teams, should know that more than any other.
But a 2-0 hole against Chicago is not a position you want to be in, home ice or not. Neither team's defense or goaltending has really shone through just yet, but I have a feeling it will tonight. Either way, here's to another exciting game to watch.
Feel free to chat it up here if you'd like or join the threads over at Broad Street Hockey or Second City Hockey.
