Game 3: Chicago Blackhawks vs. Philadelphia Flyers Live Stream (Free Online Video)
Blackhawks vs. Flyers Game 3 Live Stream: Down 2-0 in this best-of-seven series, the Philadelphia Flyers will play their most important game of the season tonight when they meet the Chicago Blackhawks at Wachovia Center for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
Peter Laviolette’s side overcame a 3-0 series deficit to beat the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference semifinals, but it’s hard to picture the Flyers or their supporters wanting to bet on doing that again. In NHL history, only 2 of the 33 teams that lost the first two games on the road have won the title.
“We’ve got to win some hockey games and we need to get on the board,” Laviolette said. “This is a good place for us. The guys are confident.”
The Hawks are 7-1 on the road in this postseason. They have won seven straight away games, and a victory this evening would set an NHL record for consecutive road playoff wins.
So, do the Flyers still have a chance?
Philadelphia has been good at home lately, but the Hawks are the better team and unless Michael Leighton can outplay Antti Niemi, the Flyers have no chance to win this series.
The match kicks-off at 8:00 p.m. ET.
UPDATE: Right winger Claude Giroux scored 5:59 into overtime to give Philadelphia a 4-3 win over Chicago in Game 3, cutting the Hawks’ series lead to 2-1.
