STANLEY CUP PLAYOFFS UPDATE: Games 1, 2, 3; Chicago up 2-1

compiled from staff and wire reports


The Chicago Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers had a wild opening game to the Stanley Cup playoffs. The winning goal came from an unlikely hero.

Tomas Kopecky, scratched in the previous five games and playing because of an injury to Andrew Ladd, took a great pass from Kris Versteeg in the third period and scored from a tough, acute angle past Backup goalie Brian Boucher to give Chicago a 6-5 victory on Saturday night.


Chicago goalie Antii Niemi back in his native Finland used to make a few extra bucks driving a Zamboni at the hockey arena. He’s now clearing pucks in the NHL for more than a few extra bucks.

Niemi made 14 of his 32 saves in the third period and Chicago beat the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 Monday night to take a 2-0 series lead.

Niemi held his poise as the Flyers put on the extra attacker the last 1:44 of the game, but couldn’t score.


Claude Giroux scored 5:59 into the overtime period to give the Philadelphia Flyers a 4-3 win over the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals Wednesday night, cutting  the Blackhawks lead in the series to 2-1.

Minutes after the Flyers thought they scored the winner only to have a video review uphold the on-ice call of no goal, Giroux redirected Matt Carle’s pass past Antii Niemi to end the third straight one-goal game in the series.

Giroux was picked four years ago in the NHL Draft by then-general manager Bobby Clarke who forgot his name up on the podium.

Clarke, who led the Flyers to their only two championships in 1974 and 1975, couldn’t recall Giroux’s name after Philadelphia chose him with the 22nd overall pick in the 2006 NHL entry draft. It was Clarke who scored Philadelphia’s last overtime goal in the finals against Boston in Game 2 of the 1974 series.
