Daily Playoff Rundown - 6/6/10

by chewy 7. June 2010 08:26

4 Stars

#1 - Dustin Byfuglien (F - CHI) - Byfulgien had a huge night for the Hawks.  He scored twice, added two assists, and delivered a classic hit on Chris Pronger. 


#2 - Kris Versteeg (F - CHI) - Versteeg scored late in the first period and added two assists for Chicago.


#3 - Ville Leino (F - PHI) - Leino continues to shine under the radar for the Flyers.  He had 3 assists in the game, giving him 19 point in 18 games in the playoffs.


#4 - Brent Seabrook (D - CHI) - Seabrook kicked off the scoring and added an assist for the Chicago.


Player Notes:

  • Chris Pronger played nearly half the game, and was a miserable -5 on the night with 0 points.
  • On the other side of the puck, Marian Hossa somehow managed to finish the game with 0 points and a -3 rating, despite 7 goals being scored by the Hawks.  Fortunately for Hossa, his teammates have been picking up the slack, otherwise, there would be a firestorm of attention on his poor post-season.
  • Michael Leighton was pulled for the 2nd time in the series after allowing 3 goals on 13 shots.  Brian Boucher didn't fare much better, allowing 3 on 14 shots.  Expect the Flyers to go back to Leighton once more in game 6.
  • Antti Niemi didn't have his best night between the pipes either, as he surrendered 4 goals on 27 shots.


Conn Smythe Trophy Update:

Pronger lost a slight step in the race with a poor showing last night.  Here are the top candidates:

1. Antti Niemi

2. Jonathan Toews

3. Danny Briere
