Flyers vs. Penguins, Game 1: Third period discussion thread

Jeff Zelevansky

Claude Giroux is back. Flyers hockey is back. What a solid second period. The first was weak all around and the Pens were skating circles around the Flyers, but the second period was just beautiful. Winning battles along the board, finding passing lanes, creating chances.

It's still 2-1 Pittsburgh, but the Flyers are very much in this game. Need to keep it up in the third and not let the Penguins' push back too hard. Then again, if they keep leaving the Best Player In The World™ wide open behind the defense like this, we'll be in good shape.
