They were very close to going into Chicago’s house and stealing game one, which might have been a major shot to the confidence of the young Blackhawks.
Nearly all of the big named scorers didn’t do much but some how both teams were able to score frequently, anyway.
I guess the biggest reason for my regret for the Philadelphia loss is the fact that they let this one get away despite doing a great job against the top Blackhawks line.¬† They can’t expect to keep those guys down for long.
I think with the first game nervousness now over, the Flyers know in a practical way that they can beat the Blackhawks.
Danny Briere who had a great game while contributing four points on a goal and three assists let it be known that they know what they can do offensively but their defense must improve.
“We realize we can score goals, but it’s a matter of better coverage in our own zone,” Briere said afterwards. “That’s why we lost the game.”
Their defense must improve in game two because they didn’t do much in helping Michael Leighton who was shaky in goal.
Should it be Leighton who was very shaky in his time on the ice against the Blackhawks or Boucher who gave up the game winner?
On Memorial Day tommorow, I encourage you to remember all of the men and women, who have sacrificed so much and many who sacrificed their lives over the years so that we could live in freedom in this wonderful country.
Happy Memorial Day to you and your family from GCobb.com.
