After game three had been one by the Flyers, I realized: Wow, this has been nothing short of an exciting Stanley Cup.
All three game shave been one goal games.
Game one had five lead changes.
Game two was a defensive game, and game three was a thriller that needed extra time to decide its winner.
No game has been lacking thrill and excitement. It's something that only playoff games can bring. That feeling where you almost pee yourself, (I admit it) or when it seems like your heart stops for just a second as the other team shots the puck.
Game three had the Philadelphia Flyers come on top. It was defiantly a must win game for the Flyers, but they still have an uphill battle ahead of them.
It was pretty safe to say that the Flyers would get one game at home, but, more importantly, can they win both?
Winning game three made this series more interesting, but Philly winning game four would put all the pressure on the Hawks in game five in Chicago.
It would be interesting how Chicago would react to a game five with the series tied two all.
Will this game three win be an up-lifter for the Flyers?
No doubt it will.
I wouldn't be surprised if Philly wins game four, but they're going to have to play just, if not, harder than they did Wednesday night. After all, the Hawks are still the top contender, and until the Flyers beat them at home, the Hawks have the edge.
That doesn't mean the Hawks should take it easy.
As shown by Wednesday's night game, the Hawks can play extremely well, but the Flyers can easily just play as well.
What the Flyers lack in talent, they make up for it in hard work and dedication. I've realized that watching them over the course of the playoffs.
Props to both teams making this a very exciting Stanley Cup.
I am a Hawks fan, but I love good hockey, and that's exactly what I am seeing in this series.
I couldn't be happier.
