  • Another Terrific Game!

    9.5
    I really enjoyed this game and I think that on the basis of the overall play, the Flyers deserved this one. A 2-1 Chicago lead is just about right in the series to date. And, it assures a fifth game this coming Sunday!



    Both teams played well in this game and for the second consecutive game, the Flyers outshot the Hawks 15-4 in the third period and again had little to show for it. They did well to tie the game after falling behind for the first time at 3-2. Responding in 20 seconds got the crowd right back into it and they dominated from there, except for a brief spurt here and there. Chicago came out hot in overtime and could have easily won the game on the first few shifts of the extra session.



    My sense is that while the Flyers play with tremendous heart and deserve to be here, they don't have anywhere near the Hawks' firepower. Philly can dominate for extended periods yet as soon as Chicago break out of their own zone, they look dangerous.



    All things considered, this really is Chicago's Cup to lose. They have the better players and home ice. I'm inclined to think that they will win the series five games, but it will be anything but easy. Barring any empty netters, I think we're in for a series featuring exciting one goal games.moreless

    • Final Score:
      Chicago 3 Philadelphia 4 (OT)
      Chicago leads series 2-1

    • In lieu of the Star Spangled Banner, the Flyers continued their long standing tradition of paying God Bless America prior to key games. The tradition began on December 11, 1969, when a recorded version sung by Kate Smith was played prior to a game with the Toronto Maple Leafs, which the Flyers won 6-3.
      .
      The first live performance was at the Flyers' 1973-74 season home opener on October 11, 1973. The Flyers also won that game, also against Toronto by a score of 2-0. The live performance in the playoffs was before Game 6 of the 1974 Stanley Cup Finals. The Flyers beat the Boston Bruins 1-0 that day to clinch their first Stanley Cup.
      .
      Today, God Bless America is performed by Flyers' anthem singer Lauren Hart, accompanied by Kate Smith on the video screen. Lauren sings the first part, Kate the second and the two both sing the final part. With tonight's victory, the Flyers are an amazing 86-22-4 (.786) when God Bless America is played.

    • This is Referee Bill McCreary's 43rd Stanley Cup Finals game, which is one more than Hall of Famer Bill "The Big Whistle" Chadwick (1915–2009). Chadwick was the first referee to use hand signals in the early 1940s. His system was adopted by the NHL in 1956, one year after his retirement.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Jim Hughson: From the Madhouse on Madison, we now have bedlam on Broad Street in Philadelphia. This building is every bit as loud and not nearly as polite. Welcome to Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final...

    • Chicago's Adam Burish: Going into this thing, if you would have said we'd be up 2-1 after three games we probably would have taken it. That's the kind of game you'd expect in the Stanley Cup finals with a team down 2-0 coming back home. We're still in a good spot.

    • Chicago's Duncan Keith: It's frustrating but ... these guys are a good team too; you have to give them some respect. We're not just going to waltz in here and play the game and expect to win without doing the little things. They're not going to quit, they haven't quit all year and that's the reason they're here.

    • (on his overtime goal)
      Philadelphia's Claude Giroux: I tried to get a stick on it, and it just trickled in. Our line started playing well, so anytime your line's going you just play better I think. The whole team just showed up tonight, and we really wanted that win. Desperation was the key word, I think. It's almost do or die.
      .
      Philadelphia's Claude Giroux: It's probably the biggest goal of my career. There's a lot of emotion (Wednesday) but I think it's important that we just focus and be ready for Game 4.

    • Chicago's Jonathan Toews: It's a tough way to lose, especially in OT when you work as hard as you did. We had the lead in the third and they kind of came right back and took the momentum away.

    • Hartnell, looking very much like he could co-star in Braveheart
      Jim Hughson is speaking about Philadelphia's Scott Hartnell, whose long curly hair and ample beard remind him of Mel Gibson's portrayal of Scottish warrior William Wallace in the 1995 film Braveheart.
