    I can't say I enjoyed this game very much. It had the feel of a blowout from the get go and the while Blackhawks never did quite put the Flyers away, they were in control of the game throughout. So far, this Finals is unfolding just like last year's: the home team has won each of the first five games.

    Chicago came out very determined and their first period was easily their best of the series. Even though they got two of their three goals off lucky bounces, they were full value for their 3-0 lead and for the victory tonight.

    I think Chicago can be scary good when their top players are on form and tonight's game proved that. This was the team I picked to win the Cup in five games. While I have no idea what will happen in Game 6, I'm going to guess that the Flyers force an unexpected Game 7, which Chicago wins.moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Final Score
      Philadelphia 4 Chicago 7
      Chicago leads series 3-2

    • In the 20 previous Stanley Cup Finals when the series was tied 2-2, the club winning Game 5 won the Cup 14 times. The last time it didn't happen was last year, when the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Detroit Red Wings.

    • The 40 goals scored far in these Finals put them the fourth on the list of most combined goals in first 5 games of a Stanley Cup finals. The top three are:

      1973: Montreal Canadiens-Chicago Black Hawks 46
      1981: New York Islanders-Minnesota North Stars 42
      1980: New York Islanders-Philadelphia Flyers 42

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Chicago's John Madden: We came out with a lot of energy and put it into the right areas. Rather than maybe screaming at a ref and getting frustrated and taking a bad (penalty), we brought the frustration to the bench and tried to explode on the next shift using our legs and speed and playing a good, solid hockey game.

    • Chicago's Kris Versteeg: We were rolling, we were having fun and we were playing the way we wanted to. We just have to keep carrying those positives into next game. It was another one of those roller-coaster rides when they kind of kept coming back. Both teams are resilient, both teams have played hard all season and I think that's why there's a lot of fun hockey out there.

    • Chicago's Brian Campbell: We just wanted it tonight. You really have to have that attitude, that you want it more than them. ... I think we learned a lot in Philly. We didn't make mistakes, didn't take dumb penalties.

    • Philadelphia Coach Peter Laviolette: We got outworked pretty good.
      (when asked who his starting goaltender would be in Game 6)
      Philadelphia Coach Peter Laviolette: I don't have an answer for that.

    • Chicago's Dustin Byfuglien: Getting down there two games in their building, we had to come back with some fire and get on them and show them we weren't going to quit. Right from the get-go we moved our feet and were physical.
