Hawks Take 2-0 Lead Over Flyers

Posted by jmw24 on 1st June 2010

The Chicago Blackhawks took a 2-0 series lead over the Philadelphia Flyers last evening, winning an exciting game two, 2-1 in Chicago. The Blackhwaks were led by a stunning third period performance by goaltender Antti Niemi. Niemi was fantastic in the third period, making 15 saves, including several from point blank range when the game was in the balance. Chicago’s Marian Hossa and Ben Eager scored just 28 seconds apart at the end of the second period to take the two goal lead. The Flyers cut the two goal lead in half with a Simon Gagne goal five minutes into the third but were unable to come up with an equalizer.

The Flyers now return home to the Wachovia Center in a 2-0 hole. To say game three is a must win is an understatement. In order for the Flyers to win game three, they do not have to change much. They were the better team for most of game two, they just could not solve Niemi. The Flyers must find a way to slow down Marian Hossa, who has been dominant in the first two games of the series. It would not be surprising if coach Peter Laviolette changed his strategy and matched Mike Richards line against the Hossa line to try and slow him down.

After signing big-money free agents like Nikolai Khabibulin, Brian Campbell and Cristobal Huet over the last few summers, the Chicago Blackhawks have kept the momentum going by signing star winger Marian Hossa to a 12-year contract averaging $5.2 million a season.

The contract is front-loaded with about $59.3 million paid out over the first eight years, and $3.5 million total for the final four years.

“To add Marian, an elite and world-class player, and Tomas, a Stanley Cup Champion, to our exciting young core reinforces our commitment to try to win the Stanley Cup,” Blackhawks General Manager Dale Tallon said in a statement.
