To have your name mentioned in the same sentence as the great Bernie Parent must mean your doing something right. Micheal Leighton stopped 30 shots last night as the Philadelphia Flyers defeated the Montreal Canadiens 3-0 and took a 2-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference Finals. Leighton is the first Flyers goalie the post back to back shutouts in the playoffs since Bernie Parent in 1975. Danny Briere scored the first goal of the game for the Flyers on the power play 4:16 into the game. It was his team leading 9th goal of the playoffs. Simon Gagne scored his 6th goal in six games since returning to the team from a broken toe. Villie Leino scored in the third period to finish the Canadiens off.
Flyers take 2-0 series lead.
