Stanley Cup Finals Game #5
Philadelphia Flyers @ Montreal Canadiens
As in the previous game neither side has won a game five during the playoffs, and not for the first time in the series the Montreal Canadiens have the upper hand in the first period and this time they manage to take full advantage with a 3-1 lead after twenty minutes. Cournoyer (7) scored his first of the SCF before Rochefort (11) scored his fourth of the series 2:25 later. The Habs' lead was restored when Beliveau (11) scored his first goal since game two, and then Rousseau (6) finished Beliveau's dandy move on the powerplay.
Rousseau (7) did it again on the man advantage early in the second period for 4-1 and the Canadiens were on their way to their first game five victory this season. The Flyers were offensively limited for the second game running, but this time Worsley was big in goal for Montreal, condemning Philadelphia to a third game five defeat in the playoffs.
