Friday night, the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Pittsburgh Penguins with a score of 8-5 in game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. With this second win, the Flyers are now two games ahead of the Pens in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
This game started off much the same as the first Stanley Cup Playoffs game – the Flyers lacked momentum in the first period of play and the Pens were unstoppable. At the first intermission the Pens were ahead of the Flyers 3-1. But Flyers fans should have learned after Wednesday night's game not to get too disappointed by a slow start.
Just like Wednesday's game, the Flyers came back and scored 3 goals in the 2nd period, tying up the game 4-4. From this point on the Penguin defense was just not there, and did not help their goalie, Marc Andre-Fleury, as the score went from 4-4 to 8-5 in just one period. Maybe it was just luck because since it was Friday the 13th, this game was bound to have 13 goals scored. Or maybe it was just the incredible Flyers offense.
The Flyers coach, Peter Laviolette, must have had a talk with his team asking them where the team that played Wednesday had gone, because shortly after the second period started, Wednesday night's team showed up and was there to stay. Sean Couturier and Claude Giroux both got hattricks, both putting three goals up on the board. Max Talbot and Jaromir Jagr also added a goal a piece to make the final score 8-5.
The next game will take place Sunday as the Flyers come back to Philadelphia with a home ice advantage.
