Hawks Up 2-0 On Flyers
Jerry Lai/US Presswire
While the first game between the Flyers and Hawks was a fast paced, high scoring game (6-5), game two was more slowed down, and ended in a 2-1 win for the Hawks.
Both goaltenders were great, but the history of Antii Neimi is interesting, considering he is a rookie, was not drafted, is from Finland, and never played in the NHL or in any American or Canadian lower league (or any college in America). His experience is primarily Finnish. He's 26, which is not necessarily young by hockey standards (unless of course, you are Chris Chelios LOL-48 years old, and still playing).
I am rooting for Chicago to win it, so let's see how game three goes tomorrow.
