Stanley Cup Finals Game 3 Tonight @ 8 PM

Filed under: Sports — mikecgannon @ 4:14 PM

The Chicago Blackhawks will facing the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals tonight. Coverage starts at 8 PM. The Blackhawks lead the (best of 7) series 2-0. Earlier in the playoffs, the Flyers came back from a 3-0 series deficit to knock out the Boston Bruins and advance to the Eastern Conference Finals (where they kicked the living snot out of the Montreal Canadiens). Coming back again like that is not impossible, but it is darn unlikely, so the Flyers have to treat this game as an elimination round.

I’ll be rooting for the Flyers for three reasons. One, the Buffalo Sabers got knocked out early, so my dog is not in this fight. Two, the Blackhawks were the number two seed in the Western Conference, while the Flyers were number seven in the East, and I tend to favor the underdog. Three, a win tonight by Chicago would put them one game away from winning Lord Stanley’s Cup, and a short championship series never has been my idea of fun.

Go Flyers!



  1. Blackhawks, because Philly is a dirty city with dirty sports fans… and the Hawks were number two, not one.
