#1 - Antti Niemi (G - CHI) - Niemi only faced 3 shots in the first period, but had plenty of work to do through the final two. He finished the game with 32 saves on 33 shots for the game 2 victory.
#2 - Ben Eager (F - CHI) - Eager scored the game winner in the second period on a top shelf shot. It was his first goal of the playoffs.
#3 - Marian Hossa (F - CHI) - Hossa finally ended his goal-scoring draught. He opened the game's scoring in the second period by chipping in a rebound.
#4 - Simon Gagne (F - PHI) - Gagne scored the lone goal for the Flyers in the third period and nearly tied the game up shortly after that.
- Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane were both held off the scoreboard once again for Chicago. It just highlights how deep this deep is to be able to go up 2-0 without their top two stars registering a point.
- Michael Leighton had 1 bad minute in the game, but played very well in the other 59. He finished the game with 24 saves on 26 shots.
Conn Smythe Watch:
No change in the favorites for the Conn Smythe after game 2. Niemi remains the front runner, as Toews has yet to register a point in the series. Here are the top 3 candidates at this point:
1. Antti Niemi
2. Jonathan Toews
3. Chris Pronger
