Blackhawks edge one game closer to the Cup

Chicago took down Philly Sunday night by the final of 7-4, sending the series back to Philly for G6 in what already poses as the Cup-clinching game. Whether Chicago will win or not remains to be seen.

Neither team has won a game on the road so far this series and I suppose it's safe to assume Chicago will have a rough go Tuesday night at the Wachovia Center. I have to admit though, I'm curious to see how the Philly fans would respond if Chicago raises the Cup at center ice.

Goaltending remains a huge area of concern for Philly, which should come as no surprise to anyone. Michael Leighton. Brian Boucher. Take your pick. It's been a rough go for both so far this series and it'll be interesting to see who Laviolette will go with for G6.

This is, don't forget, a Flyers team that never said die against the Bruins. I'm not ruling out the likelihood of the series heading back to Chicago for Game 7, but it will take a supreme effort in G6 to get to that point.
