Daily Playoff Rundown - 5/25/10

by chewy 25. May 2010 08:22

Midnight has struck and it's time for Cinderella to give back her pretty dress.  


4 Stars

#1 - Mike Richards (F - PHI) - Richards continues to lead the charge for the Flyers, this time scoring a highlight  goal and two assists in the game 5 victory.  Richards has climbed into 2nd place in playoff scoring and is the leading Conn Smythe candidate for Philly.


#2 - Jeff Carter (F - PHI) - In Carter's 2nd game back, he showed no signs of rust, scoring two goals for the Flyers on 2 shots.


#3 - Michael Leighton (G - PHI) - Leighton stopped 25 of 27 shots he faced for the win, as he continues his amazing run in net for the Flyers.


#4 - Scott Gomez (F - MON) - Gomez gave Canadiens fans some late game hope, as he scored a nice goal in the third period to pull the game within 1.  He also had an assist earlier in the game.


Injury Update:

  • Duncan Keith is probable for game 1 of the finals on Saturday night after losing some teeth
  • Andrew Ladd is doubtful for the opening contest after leaving game 4


Player Notes:

  • Brian Gionta had a goal and an assist, along with 7 shots on net for Montreal
  • Jaroslav Halak ends his amazing playoff run with a 2.55 GAA and .923 save %, but astonishingly enough, had no shutouts.


The Finals begin on Saturday night in Chicago.  Check back tomorrow for our Conn Smythe candidates update and on Thursday for a preview of the finals.
