Blackhawks on the brink of a Stanley Cup; defeat Flyers 7-4

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Chicago Blackhawks had everything going their way on Sunday night,  balance scoring, home ice advantage and mixing up the scoring lines which put them one win away from a Stanley Cup.

Dustin Byfuglien and Patrick Kane both were moved out of the number 1 scoring line, but they had two goals and two assists to lead Chicago to a 7-4 win over Philadelphia, allowing them to take a 3-2 series lead.

Byfuglien, who at 257-pounds looks like a defenseman intead of a winger, had eight goals in the first three rounds of the plyoffs but none in the first four games against the  tough Flyers defense, scored a power-play goal in the second period and added an empty net goal in the closing seconds of the third period.

The scoring line of Jonathan Toews, Byfuglien and Kane that was effective earlier in the playoffs, was split up, and the strategy worked to perfection. They had a combined 1 goal and four assists in the first four games against the Flyers.

Brent Seabrook added a power-play goal, Dave Bolland, Kris Versteeg and Patrick Sharp also scored for the Blackhawks.

Chicago can capture their first Stanley Cup since 1961 with a win in Philadelphia on Wednesday.

The Philadelphia Flyers took control of Game 4 as Mike Richards, Matt Carle and Claude Giroux all scored first-period goals and the Philadelphia Flyers hung on to beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-3 Friday night in Philadelphia to even up the Stanley Cup Playoffs at 2-2.

Ville Leino and Jeff Carter also scored for Philadelphia.

Leading 4-1 early in the third period, Chicago’s Dave Bolland and Brian Campbell scored late goals to slice the deficit to one.

The Flyers became the first team in the series to win a game by more than one goal. Philadelphia is trying to win their first Cup since 1975.

The home team has won all four games in the series.

The Chicago Blackhawks are within one win of the Stanley Cup finals for the first time in 18 years.

Dave Bolland’s pass from behind the net found Byfuglien in stride as he skated fast and hard into the slot Friday night. That goal had a 3-2 win over the San Jose Sharks and a 3-0 series lead in the Western Conference finals.

Two assists from Jonathan Toews, and 44 saves from Antti Niemi put the Blackhawks on the brink of their first appearance in the finals since 1992. They will have the chance to wrap up the series sweep at home on Sunday.

Toews’ two assists gave him a point in 12 straight playoff games, breaking a club record he had shared with Hall of Famer Stan Mikita, who had an 11-game streak in 1962. Toews has 25 points in the 2010 playoffs.

No revenge as Blue Jackets beat Chicago for the second time in 4 days

compiled from staff, wire and internet reports

After the Blue Jackets demolished the Chicago Blackhawks this past Thursday at Nationwide Arena, 8-3, most of the Blackhawks players including head coach Joel Quenneville couldn’t wait until Sunday to get the Jackets on their home ice for a payback. After all, Chicago had 3 days of practice to get ready, while the Jackets had to play on Saturday night at home and lost in overtime to the New York Islanders and had to travel late Saturday night to the Windy City for back-to-back games. All scenarios led to the rested Blackhawks ready to have a blow out of their own? Not at all!

Steve Mason, Jakub Voracek, Andrew Murray, Mike Commodore, Derick Brassard and R.J. Umberger led the way for a 4-2 Columbus win over Chicago on Sunday night.

Steve Mason seems to be finally rounding into the form that everybody saw last season as the NHL’s Rookie of the Year, as he made 33 saves and allowed only 1 goal. The other Chicago goal was knocked into the net by a Columbus player by accident.

Jakub Voracek scored two goals and had an assist in the win over the reeling Chicago Blackhawks who are 2-4-2 in the last eight games.

Andrew Murray and Mike Commodore also scored for Columbus. Derick Brassard and R.J. Umberger each had two assists for the Blue Jackets.

Eventhough Columbus is out of the playoff chase, clinging to 5th place in the Central Division and 14th in the Western Conference, they have played well under interim coach Claude Noel who is 9-5-4 since taking over for the fired Ken Hitchcock on February 3.

Despite all of their recent inconsistent play, the Blackhawks remain seven points ahead of second-place Nashville in the Central Division, but they keep missing opportunities to gain on San Jose in the race for first place in the Western Conference.

Early in the game, Chicago played as if they were out to put the game away early.  Dave Bolland was credited with the goal that opened the scoring at the 8:58 mark of the first period. Steve Mason stopped a Brent Seabrook shot off the right wing, and Bolland failed in his attempt to put in the rebound from the side of the net. Columbus center Antione Vermette  tried to clear the puck out of the crease area but accidentally knocked it past Mason, giving Chicago a 1-0 lead.

Andrew Murray brought the Jackets back into a 1-1 tie just shy of two minutes later during a delayed penalty call when he knocked in a loose puck from a scramble in the crease area.

Columbus basically put the game away in the second period by scoring twice for a 3-1 lead. Jakub Voracek knocked in a loose puck into a wide-open net with 6:35 left in the second  period for a 2-1 lead. After Chicago goalie Antii Niemi blocked Derick Brassard’s shot from the right circle and dropped to the ice and Voracek pounced on the rebound from the left side of the crease.

Mike Commodore pushed the lead out to 3-1, scoring on a shot from the point with 6.3 seconds left in the second period while his teammate Jakub Voracek was screening Niemi’s vision.

Patrick Sharp cut the deficit to 3-2 in the third period with 3:13 left when he scored on a short-handed breakaway. The goal gave Chicago late momentum, but Voracek scored on an empty net goal with 8 seconds remaining to seal the win.
