Second verse, same as the first

The Flyers won the second game of their series against the Leafs the same way they did the first game : strong cycling down low and Eshe outplaying Belfour. I guarantee you Belfour wants that Zhamnov goal back.

The Leafs did put up a much better effort in game 2 than in game one and dominated the Flyers in the second period. However, other than a deflection goal by Domi (with all the stars on these teams how were the first 2 goals of the games scored by Domi and Brashear? lol) Esche shut the door. The Leafs had 2 point blank chances to tie the game late but unfortunately for them the puck wasn’t on the tape of any of their skilled players.

I’d also like to throw out some obvious Leaf bias by the league. First off is the incredible amount of time between games one to game two to game three – 3 days between each game. There is one series (involving a team that also went 7 games) that will be playing game 4 when the Flyers/Leafs play game 3! The league obviously wants to help every way they can. The refs also instructed the Flyers repeatedly in game 1 to say away from Eddie as reported during the game. The question is why would they do that? I can see that if it was game 2 on and the Flyers had run Eddie several times, but to put the Flyers on notice before they’d even played one game? Ridiculous. I’d also like to note that the Flyer’s lone goalie interference call today was total Bull. Brashear was not in the paint. Belfour skated to the edge of the paint, pushed off of Brashear and did a heckuva dive. You think the refs would be tired of Leafs making them look like idiots but hey .. Toronto’s the center of the hockey world or so they say. Also, penalties need to be called consistantly both ways, that’s all I have to say.
