Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup

hawks win cup Blackhawks win the Stanley CupThe Flyers cinderella run has come to an end, after a Patrick Kane overtime shot in game 6 found it’s way past goalie Michael Leighton, giving Chicago the 4-3 series clinching overtime win, and the 2010 Stanley Cup. Jonathan Toews winning the Con Smythe.

Despite being dominated throughout most of the 60 minutes played, the Flyers took advantage of the chances they had, relinquished a 2-1 2nd period lead, but took control of the late 3rd period. Scott Hartnell the game tieing goal with 3:59 remaining. Hawks outshot the Flyers 39 to 23 in regulation.

Ville Leino 2 assists in the loss. Leino tieing an NHL rookie postseason points record(Dino Ciccarelli) with 21. The 4 games to 2 finals loss ends the Flyers remarkable 2010 postseason run which began with a shootout win over the Rangers in the final day of the regular season, to becoming just the third team in NHL history to comeback and win a series after trailing 3 games to none. Sadly, the road to immortality ends just 2 wins shy.

    good year yes but to get to the cup need a front line goalie too many soft goals in the finals, what would it take to get lundquist from the rangers ? gagne and coburn works for me if we have to i could see carter but id try to get a little more in a deal with him

    Trade Carter for a goalie!

    When you take a step back and try to objectively look at that game last night as a Flyers fan I can’t tell you how sick I am that
    Richards, Gagne and Cater ALL didn’t have at least one goal last night!! There shouldn’t have even been an overtime!!!
    As far as goaltending Leighten and Boucher are NOT going to carry this team to the Cup!!!!
    Lastly, what the hell happen to Pronger???? He was suppose to come back with a vengence but was not a factor in the game??
    Still was a magical year but yet another year of dissappointment

      Bigg Buff happened to Pronger… he woke up!
