Philadelphia got away with a couple of things in Game 4, but the refs aren't going to see everything, so complaining about them is pointless. It also doesn't change the fact that Chicago looked flat in that game. I've seen plenty of the Blackhawks this post-season, and that game was the worst I'd seen from them. Forget the final score; they were getting bullied all night, and they've been getting pushed around for the better part of this series.

Patrick Sharp and (ironically) Marian Hossa are the only Blackhawks who have played consistently well this series. Patrick Kane has played only one good game, and Dustin Byfuglien has totally vanished, which is shocking considering how he dominated against Vancouver and San Jose. The pressure in this series was initially on the Flyers, and they've responded to it very well. Now the pressure is on the Blackhawks. Let's see how they respond.

Was nice seeing Pronger finally get knocked hard on his ugly arse. What a loser.

A word of wisdom...

Last season, Detroit enjoyed themselves a 5-0 victory over Pittsburgh in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals, and secured a 3-2 series lead. They still lost. This series ain't over until somebody wins a fourth game.

True... but which end of that 3-2 series lead would you rather be in?

I heard a stat concerning how often the winner of a game 5 in a series went on to win it and I tried to find it on the web but I couldn't. The odds, if I heard and remember correctly, were heavily in favor of the team that won game 5.

Bottom line though is, you're right.... it ain't over till someone wins their fourth one. And this year, I'm pulling for Chicago!

This is so true especially with the Flyers not quitting regardless of how big the lead became. This game could have gone either way; however, the Hawks kept to the basics and just threw the puck on the net getting the deflections off Pronger on the first goal and Leighton on the second.

That hit by Byfuglien on Pronger was a statement, he definately redeemed himself with the 2 goal/2 assist night after what has been a silent series for him. I expect the Flyers will come out with guns blazing Wednesday night and there will be tons of hits.

Yes, while it did feel good to get a W tonight, one has to look ahead to Wednesday night and wonder if the Hawks can get the job done in Philly. It is nice to have a 3-2 lead, but I thought I would feel more confident than I do.

I know how you feel, the Flyers are like a nagging back pain, it think it's gone and it comes right back. I will take the win tonight but I know that Game 6 has to be a win because Game 7's are not good for my stomach

I am still worried but more hopeful, I forget the stat but the Hawks haven't won in Philly in I believe since November 9, 1996.

The Blackhawks ran the Flyers out of the building last night.
