The Chicago Blackhawks are within two victories of their first Stanley Cup in 49 years after a 2-1 home win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

The win gives the Blackhawks a 2-0 lead in the best of seven series to decide North American ice hockey's top trophy.

The series moves to Philadelphia for games three and four on Thursday and Saturday and the Flyers won't be panicking after rallying from 3-0 down to eliminate the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference semi-finals.
