Blackhawks-Flyers Stanley Cup Final; TV schedule

Posted by: Michael Russo under Stanley Cup Updated: May 24, 2010 - 9:15 PM

The Flyers are in the Finals. Amazing.  

Remember, the Flyers made the playoffs on the last day of the season by way of a shootout. What if Olli Jokinen scores that goal and sends the shootout to the next round? This is a Flyers team that trailing Boston 3-0.

So now:

Jonathan Toews vs. Mike Richards; Patrick Kane vs. Danny Briere; Antti Niemi vs. Michael Leighton

Dustin Byfuglien going to the net vs. ... Chris Pronger.

This should be fun.

Blackhawks-Flyers begin Saturday in Chicago.

Is three times a charm for Marian Hossa? Can Peter Laviolette's streak of seven straight series' victories be snapped?

The Blackhawks, who haven't won a Stanley Cup since 1961, advance to the Finals for the first time since 1992. The Flyers, who haven't won a Stanley Cup since 1975, advance to the Finals for the first time since 1997.

Here's the schedule:
