|chinese authentic jerseys Flyers goalie Michael Leighton was holding on to every puck he could, not only to eliminate rebounds, but also to slow down the game. But the Hawks were winning most of the offensive zone faceoffs.
Flyers coach Peter Laviolette returned Simon Gagne to the Mike Richards line in place of aggravating Dan Carcillo, which meant Hawks coach Joel Quenneville could use Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook against Philadelphia's big line.
Hawks goalie Antti Niemi stropped Darroll Powe on a redirection on a shorthanded 2 on 1 break early in the second period. That shot was more than the Hawks managed on a power play that is now 4 33 in the playoffs at home.
Moments later, Niemi stuck out a pad to rob Richards on a breakaway from the blue line in. Then Leighton robbed Keith on a slap shot on a 3 on 2 about eight minutes in to keep the game scoreless. Then Niemi made a big glove save on Carcillo, the third big save in a Flyers flurry. Both goalies were going to make sure this game looked like it belonged in the Stanley Cup finals.
But then the Hawks Soccer Jerseys Cheap - Leading Branded beat Leighton twice in 28 seconds late in the period, both goals coming from long lost relatives. Marian Hossa banged in a rebound for only his third goal of the postseason at 17:09, then Ben Eager, a former Flyer, used a defenseman as a screen and snapped the puck over Leighton's glove at 17:37 for his first of the playoffs.

Flyers winger Dan Carcillo was slapping sticks and yapping at the Hawks non stop, the very definition of a shift disturber. He also skated on the Mike Richards line with the intention of drilling Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook. Hawks coach Joel Quenneville knew it and tried to use Niklas Hjalmarsson and Brian Cheap Authentic(Elite) Jerseys, New Jerseys Wholesale Campbell against the Richards line, which benefited the Flyers.
Hawks goalie cheap authentic nhl jerseys Antti Niemi made a big stop during a delayed penalty after Kris Versteeg was stopped point blank at the other end. Then, behind the play and about 160 feet from his own goal, Versteeg got whistled for interference. Have to be smarter than that.
Quenneville got the Jonathan Toews line against the Flyers' fourth line a couple times, but the unit couldn't find much open ice or control the puck with their cycling game.
Then again, the chunky United Center ice made it difficult for anyone to control the puck, which slowed the Hawks' attempt at playing puck possession. They might be better off looking to shoot and crash the net because Flyers goalie Michael Throwback NBA Jerseys, Cheap Retro Jerseys & Wholesale Vintage Jerseys Leighton will give up rebounds.
wholesale red baseball uniforms There were 33 hits combined in the first period. Get tough or get out.
The Hawks finally got a couple power plays near the end of the first period, but managed only a couple chances and now are 4 32 on the power play at home in the postseason.
But hey, at least the Hawks didn't give up a goal in the last minute. Not sure you care, but the bosses apparently do, so here you go:
