I think Blackhawks fans know that they can't say anything until the series is over. Being up 2-0 is good but they need two more and it's far too early to write off the Flyers.


I will say that it's obvious the Blackhawks are much better than Montreal.


2 down, 2 more to go

This series is far from over. Each game so far has been decided by one goal, and the series heads to Philadelphia now. If the Flyers get a break or two, they can tie this series back up. Besides, Detroit won the first two games of the Stanley Cup Finals last season and still lost.

2-0 lead in a Hockey playoff series means nothing

Sure, anyone can win, but I bet Philly and their fans would not mind being up 2-0 instead of down 0-2.


I give a lot of credit to philly for rattling Kaners, or at least it seems that way, he has been pretty bad so far this series. While Toews isn't lighting up the scoresheet either, he does not look nearly as bad as #88 has.

I've heard that less than 10% of the country's TVs can get Versus. Consequently a relatively few people will get to see half the games, and the NHL will continue to lag behind other sports in popularity and viewer numbers.

The day might eventually come when the NHL brass thinks big picture and sells the TV rights for less money but to a bigger network, with a bigger viewership (including me). A short-term loss for a long-term gain. Of course I'm assuming that NBC or ESPN have at least some desire to boradcast all seven games.

Why the hell does philly need another championship when they just won one years ago? What the hell are you talking about?

The games used to be on ESPN and local networks but shrewd Gary Bettman signed a contract with VS with little viewship. Just another example of poor negotiating.

The Philadelphia Flyers haven't won the Stanley Cup since 1975.

But I think the poster meant they need another "championship"...meaning in addition to the World Series.
