* The Blackhawks won their first Stanley Cup Final game since 1973 with a 6-5 victory over the Flyers on Saturday. The 11 combined goals by the two clubs were the most in any Game 1 of the SC Final since the Islanders (6) and the Canucks (5) combined to score 11 times in 1982.
* Teams winning Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final have gone on to win the Cup in 54 of 70 seasons (77.1%) since the best-of-7 format started in 1939.* Including the 2009-10 regular season, the Blackhawks will be playing in their 100th game tonight - tied for most in a single season by any Chicago club all-time (also in 1989-90). Chicago has already won a single-season franchise-record 65 combined games in 2009-10.
* Troy Brower had a career postseason-high three points (2g, 1a) in Game 1. Brower entered the contest with just three points total in his first 13 games of the 2010 playoffs.
* After being held without a point in his previous three contests, Danny Briere recorded his first ever 4-point (1g, 3a) playoff game on Saturday. Briere now leads all Flyers' skaters with 22 points (10g, 12a) during the 2010 postseason
