Flyers, Blackhawks Take Lead in Their NHL Conference Finals

May 19 (Bloomberg) -- The Philadelphia Flyers defeated the Montreal Canadiens 3-0 and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the top-seeded San Jose Sharks 4-2 to take 2-0 leads in their National Hockey League Conference finals.

In the Eastern Conference, Danny Briere and Simon Gagne scored power-play goals and Ville Leino capped the scoring midway through the final period last night at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia. The Flyers have outscored the Canadiens 9-0 so far in the series.

The Flyers travel to Montreal for Game 3 in the best-of-seven series tomorrow.

In the Western Conference, Andrew Ladd, Dustin Byfuglien and Jonathan Toews gave Chicago a 3-0 lead midway through the second period at HP Pavilion in San Jose, California, before Patrick Marleau scored the first of his two goals for the Sharks.

Troy Brouwer made it 4-1 to the Blackhawks in the final period before Marleau completed the scoring with 4:28 to play.

The Blackhawks host Game 3 on May 21.
