In a brief synopsis, there were 5 quick goals already by the end of the first period, and at the end of 2 periods 10 goals had already been scored, leaving the Hawks with 5 and the Flyers with 5.
The Hawks came back to score the go ahead goal quickly in the 3rd midway through the period for good, giving them the final 6-5 win.
Game 2 is Monday night at 7 pm right back at the United Center, Memorial day, where the unparalleled 'Blackhawks National Anthem' will be heard round the world as a tribute to the soldiers past and present who gave and give their lives for our freedoms
Just like it was the day it started, when I myself was here below at the Chicago Stadium during Christmastime, at the 1991 NHL All Star game, when a salute to all the soldiers off fighting the Gulf War was then 'heard half way around the world' by us and I'm sure will be exceeded on Memorial day.
The first time the Blackhawks have EVER played this late in the season.
God Bless them all, meaning the soldiers, not the Blackhawks. I mean, I'm a fan but I don't bother God with prayers for sporting events I'm afraid..
