The Philadelphia Flyer have finally eliminated the Pittsburgh Penguins today in game 6. Claude Giroux started the game with a thundering hit on Sidney Crosby and they he went on to score the first goal just 32 second into the game. Scott Hartnell, Erik Gustafsson, Danny Briere and Brayden Schenn scored the other goals for the Flyers. Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin scored Pittsburgh’s only goal of the game. The Flyers won 5-1.
Marc-Andre Fleury had seemed to finally find his groove in the last two games but today he was shaking from the beginning and he gave up a weak goal to Danny Briere which sucked the momentum right out of the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins got a late goal but it was disallowed because Ilya Bryzgalov was pushed into his net. Crosby was very quiet after receiving that thunderous hit by Giroux at the beginning of the game.
As the last minute of play counted down the Flyers fans continued their chants “YOU CAN”T BEAT US!” and I guess they were right! The Flyers won the series 4-2.
