The Black Hawks came out with fire in their skates on Sunday night, looking like a different team than the one that lost Game 4 in Philadelphia. They were physical without catching a lot of dumb penalties. They were aggressive, quick to the puck, their passing was crisp and their defense was tough.
They didn't keep it up the entire game. There were a few defensive lapses and the Flyers adjusted and played a lot better in the second and third periods, but the damage had been done in that first period. The three goals they scored unanswered in that first period proved to be the margin of victory. Final score: 7-4. Series score: Hawks 3, Flyers 2.
Let's end this in Philly on Wednesday night!
