Home Team up 3-0 in Stanley Cup Finals

Game one was a replay of the Wild West, where it seemed like every shot was finding twine.

Since then the teams have shored up their defense, and goaltending has gotten better.

For the first time in this Stanley Cup Finals we have seen OT, and it has benefited the Philadelphia Flyers.

After trading goals throughout regulation, the Flyers went up one goal permanently in overtime, making the series total a more manageable 2-1, instead of a huge 3-0 Chicago lead.

Game 4 is scheduled for Friday night – as the home team Flyers will look to continue to use home ice advantage to even the series.

Every game so far in the Finals has been won by the home team, a trend that will eventually favor the Chicago Blackhawks.  As underdogs, the Flyers will have to win a game in Chicago if they are going to upset and win the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1975.
