CHICAGO (AP) -The Flyers tightened up their defense, got better goaltending and kept the pressure on the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals.
And they still lost, falling 2-1 on Monday night, putting themselves in an 0-2 hole as the series shifts to Philadelphia for Game 3 on Wednesday.
Michael Richards had six goals and 15 assists for the Flyers in the playoffs, prior to the finals. Linemate Jeff Carter has been struggling too. The Flyers generated an incredible amount of prime scoring chances down the stretch, but except for Simon Gagne's power-play goal they came up empty.
