Keith Falls, Flyers Jump: Leino Feeds Briere To Give Flyers 2-1 Lead

Just as I finished the segment below, Duncan Keith fell on his backside at the Chicago blueline. Ville Leino was right there with the puck, he broke in on goal, and fed it to Danny Briere who put it in the back of the net to give Philly the 2-1 lead.

Wachovia Center = loud. Wow.

The pace here is so crazy that it's tough to type. Both teams are getting chances deep in the other teams end, but the Flyers seem to be the team controlling play a bit more than Chicago so far here in the second.

We're seven minutes in now, and after a gigantic, momentum-building penalty kill, the Flyers really started to generate a lot of pressure in the Blackhawks end. The line of Scott Hartnell, Ville Leino and Danny Briere is absolutely on fire for Philly, but the 'Hawks defense is doing a solid job of limiting their chances.

Still, the Flyers are getting the cycle game going, and that type of hockey usually wears on a defending team after a while. Mike Richards leveling people along the wall will tire a team, too, of course. We'll see if they can keep the pace.
