Maybe Game 2 will be better

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.

Interesting stats:

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.

Let’s hope.

    Good riddance, wouldn’t hurt to start deleting the accounts of some of the people here sticking up for his nonsense.
