The tide seemed to be turning. The Flyers were swarming, thanks to a thunderous hit from their Captain and a quick strike from Danny Briere. They had the lead, a power play, and all the momentum.
Then, the Blackhawks happened. Duncan Keith, Dave Bolland and Patrick Sharp connected with some nifty passing, and Sharp's weak five-hole shot flubbed through Michael Leighton. The score is tied at 2-2, and suddenly fans at Wachovia Center need a bit of a pick me up. Perhaps a TV timeout will do the trick.
- Tonight's attendance: 20,327. It's the third-straight game where the Flyers have set a record for attendance in team history, in the building's history, and in Pennsylvania hockey history.
