The Chicago Blackhawks dropped game four of the Stanley Cup playoffs, allowing the Philadelphia Flyers to tie the series 2-2. The 5-3 loss was marked by flubbed defensive moves and a lack of discipline on the part of the Hawks.

The Blackhawks kept good pressure on the Flyers throughout the game but were unable to solve the problem of Mike Leighton, who stopped 28 shots on goal. Jeff Carter and Mike Richards shown, using their few opportunities to score.

It was another game in which the Flyers put a lie to their name as the Broad Street Bullies, only taking eight minutes of penalties, four in the final period after the game was pretty much in the bag for the team. 

In comparison, the Hawks took 14 minutes of penalties. However it was set of Flyers penalties, giving the Hawks a 5:3 advantage that gave the Hawks their best opportunity to win the game. The action happened mid-way through the final frame, allowing the Hawks to come within one goal of the Flyers.

The Flyers, however, used an empty net advantage in the final minute, Jeff Carter lifting the puck from Duncan Keith and racing in to score the finishing goal with seconds remaining on the clock.
