In Philadelphia the Montreal Candians showed a better effort in game two out shooting the Flyers 30-23 but still didn't have an answer for Flyer goalie Michael Leighton as he was able to record back to back shut outs in games one and two of the best of seven series.
The last time a Flyer goalie was good for back to back shut outs in the playoffs was 1975, the year Bernie Parnet did it and the Flyers won the Stanley Cup.
The Flyers hot hands with the sick were able to get the team on the board both on the power play. Danny Briere scoring his ninth of the playoffs on the power play in the first period of play as Simon Gagne was also able to connect in the second period also on a power play advantage cashing in on his sixth goal of the playoffs.
The Philadelphia Flyers would get their insurance goal in the third on a snap shot off the stick of Ville Leino that Montreal Canadians goalie Jaroslav Halak wish he could have back as the puck sailed right by him on a shot off the out side of the face off circle on a bad angle with just 9:36 remaining.
The Flyers would shut the door the rest of the way and were able to grab the 2-0 lead in the series. Game three is Thursday night in Montreal where the Canadian crowd will ready to support their team who ousted the first seeded Washington Capitals and defending Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins.
