Chris Pronger was called for high-sticking, and it was probably a phantom call. On the power play, Dustin Byfuglien was able to reign free in front of Michael Leighton with the big Pronger in the box. He scored his 11th of the playoffs, and the Blackhawks have a 1-0 lead.
Almost immediately after the power play, in an apparent make-up call, Brent Seabrook was sent to the box for elbowing. Through two power plays, the Flyers can't seem to get anything going. Chicago is blocking shots at will and clogging passing lanes like they're playing for the Stanley Cup. .... oh, right.
And just as I'm ready to hit publish, another penalty is called on Chicago. It's the second interference call on Brent Sopel this period, and the Flyers have capitalized just about right away. Scott Hartnell, positioned in front of the net, banged home a loose rebound to even the score.
What timing, with 20 seconds left and everything. That's the kind of stuff that turns momentun. We'll see when the second period kicks off.
