The Philadelphia Flyers had the Pittsburgh Penguins right where they wanted them. 15 seconds into the hockey game, Sidney Crosby scored a goal to give Pittsburgh a 1-0 lead, and about nine minutes later, Chris Kunitz put the Pens up 2-0. Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette then called time out, and the comeback was on.
Max Talbot scored a shorthanded goal a little over three minutes later, and it seemed like Philadelphia was yet again on their way to another comeback. But with just 18 seconds left in the period, Paul Martin ruined the Flyers' momentum with a goal that gave Pittsburgh their two-goal lead back.
Pittsburgh has the lead and the momentum, but the Flyers are still in a better position than when they entered the second period down 3-0 in Game 1. Hard to predict what's going to happen from here.
