June 3rd, 2010 by Bill Sudell Leave a reply »
The Stanley Cup Final returned to Philadelphia for the first time in 13 years, and it was worth the wait.

On a night when the Wachovia Center crowd was on edge from start to finish, the Flyers outlasted Chicago 4-3 in an overtime thriller.

The mood was festive afterwards, but it seemed most fans were more relieved than anything after Claude Giroux scored on the Flyers only official shot in the extra session.

Philadelphia is back in the series after yet another one-goal game against the Hawks.


Over the first seven periods of the series, Giroux had no points and did not register a shot on goal. He returned to form after the first intermission Wednesday, picking up assists on Scott Hartnell and Ville Leino's goals before tallying his first career playoff overtime score to get the Flyers back in the series.

Giroux now has 10 points in his last 11 games.


Briere picked up a goal and an assist to take over the team lead with 24 points in the playoffs.

He now has picked up multi-point efforts in nine of his last 17 games.
