SMJ Cup Playoffs


Philly's Revenge



5 2


Philadelphia Leads 2-0

The Philadelphia Flyers have stolen the first two games of the SMJ Cup series with two dominating victories.  After their Game #1 6-1 win, they backed it up with a 5-2 victory in Game #2 and take a 2-0 series lead. Detroit was never really in this one, either.  Eric Lindros started the scoring midway through the opening period and by the midway point of the 3rd period, it was 5-0 and all but over.  Detroit scored their meaningless goals in the final 2 minutes of the game, only spoiling Tom Barasso's shut out bid by doing so.  Denis Savard and Alexander Mogilny scored those two goals.  Lindros finished with 2 goals for the Flyers and Doug Brown led all scorers with a goal and 2 assists. Ken Linseman and Rod Brind'Amour scored the other Philly goals.  So, the series now shifts to Philadelphia and the Detroit Red Wings face a must-win situation.  They have to find a way to turn this around or they could find this series over really quickly.
