Flyers Get Their Revenge On Blackhawks

Sunday was the only regular-season rematch of last year’s Stanley Cup Finals and the Blackhawks didn’t look like the winners they were last year.

Jeff Carter had two goals and an assist, and rookie Sergei Bobrovsky made 29 saves in the Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-1 win over the the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday.

Nikolay Zherdev and Scott Hartnell added goals, and Claude Giroux had three assists for the Flyers in the the only regular-season rematch of last year’s Stanley Cup Finals.

The 22-year-old Bobrovsky lost a bid for his first career shutout at 6:49 of the third period when Marian Hossa scored on a penalty shot. Philadelphia improved to a league-leading 69 points and is 9-2-0 in its last 11.

Defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago lost in regulation for the first time since Jan. 5 and had been on a 5-0-1 roll.

Chicago rookie Corey Crawford finished with 30 saves.

    Here’s a message for DAN BERNSTEIN of the score Mr. Anti HAWK. You are the biggest hypocrite on the planet your quote the other day about when the Hawks won the Stanley Cup was “that was cute” Bernstein thinks he’s so much better than everybody all he is since I can’t use racial terms but you know where I’m getting at. Do this town a favor save all your nickels and dimes move out of deerfield or highland park and anywhere out west and out to la la land where you belong and get off the chicago airwaves

    Okay we knew the Flyers wer’e out for revenge and it was bound to happen well we all know how tight the conference is and the fact is where one bad slump away from issing the playoffs and once again the guy to blame is GM STAN BOWMAN. Remember this guy has no hockey experience, he inherited the team, his daddy is the legend and he is not the heir apparant. This guy is a ND finance major he’s a guy to call on to do your taxes not dismantle a dynasty like I always said STAN BOWMAN sucks

    Talk about a MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT…WHAT HAPPENED? Thanks to Bowman’s financial SOLUTIONS AT THE BEGINING OF THE SEASON…one should be happy that the team is doing as well as they are! If they keep up like this, they will be lucky to make the play-offs…as if they will make a run…I HOPE AND PRAY THINGS GET TURNED AROUND …SOON!!!
