That changed Wednesday in Game 3, when the power play went 0-for-3 and the penalty killers allowed two goals on three chances during the Blackhawks' 4-3 overtime loss at the Wachovia Center. For the series, the Blackhawks are 0-for-6 on the power play and have allowed the Flyers to score four times in 10 chances with the extra man."
Jerseys with star players names like Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane have been selling well, as well as T-shirts and hats, Laxamana said. The store is also selling Blackhawks decals, magnets, flags and other items."
(Funny story about this store: a few months ago went in there and asked if they had Seabrook shirts. The guys working said they don't make Seabrook shirts anywhere. No Seabrook shirts? Yeah, okay. Went to another store and they had a ton.)
"Byfuglien inherited the name from his mother, who is Norwegian. In his hometown, the tiny northwest Minnesota burg of Roseau, locals say “Bye-FOOG-lie-in.” On TV and among hockey fans, however, it’s “Bufflin.” He’s a large guy — listed at 257 pounds — so sometimes it’s “Big Buff.”"
"We've been to Chicago. There are lots of places of worship. Obviously, the only prayer the Blackhawks have now is to have all members of the clergy in both cities engage in a holy war, hopefully with magic wands like the wizard fights in Harry Potter."
"The Flyers' 4-3 overtime victory over the Blackhawks on Versus on Wednesday night earned a 3.1 rating and averaged 3.6 million viewers. It was the highest-rated and most-watched telecast in network history."

"I didn't want Quenneville to blur the biggest big-picture issue emerging from the Blackhawks' 4-3 overtime loss to the Flyers with an overly complex description of how a careless mistake changing lines contributed to Claude Giroux's winning goal.
I just wanted a better grasp of how, at such a critical time, with at least two Hawks running off the ice at the end of their shift, the Flyers took advantage of a de facto power-play opportunity and Giroux scored on a redirection at the 5:59 mark of overtime."
