A Stanley Cup final third period – preceded by 40 minutes of October hockey.
Tomas Kopecky scored the winner, becoming one of nine Blackhawks on the scoresheet … none of them named Toews, Kane or Byfuglien.
Mike Richards, Simon Gagné and Jeff Carter were shut out for the Flyers.
But the name to remember – or maybe forget – is Michael Leighton.
Thre shutouts against the Canadiens.
Five goals on 20 shots in 35 minutes against Chicago.
The erstwhile Broad Street Bullies took ZERO penalties.
Toews 18-6 on draws … and won his first 13.
Chris Pronger played 32:21
The Toews line: collectively minus-9.
Again, not a classic.
Troy Brouwer said the teams had “settled down” and predicted we’d be seeing better hockey.
