NHL-Highlights of Tuesday’s NHL games – Yahoo Sports

(LM Otero/AP) Travel Deals Sam Carchidi, Inquirer Staff Writer Posted: Tuesday, October 21, 2014, 3:01 AM CHICAGO – The Flyers, of all teams, have committed a league-low 12 minor penalties, and they have averaged the NHL’s fewest penalty minutes per game (seven) in the first five games. It’s a small sample, but it is still eye-opening for a franchise that usually leads the NHL – or is near the top – in both categories. It’s been “way less taxing” on his penalty killers, said coach Craig Berube, whose team plays in Chicago on Tuesday night. “We’ve been good so far, and we have to continue to check properly, because when your sticks are in the air and you’re hooking and tripping and stuff, you’re going to get penalties. . . . Discipline-wise, with the physical play, it’s been good.” Berube was asked if he was a little surprised his team had the fewest penalties in the NHL.

Chicago easily handled the Philadelphia Flyers by a final score of 4-0 . The Flyers, a team with numerous concern s so early in the season, continue to struggle. They have just one win in six games. This was over early. The Blackhawks scored twice in 32 seconds and three times in less than three minutes late in the first period, taking the lead and taking control. They didnt relent. Shots after the opening 20 minutes were 19-9 for Chicago. It didnt better for Philadelphia. When it was all over, the 25-year-old Raanta picked up the second shutout of his NHL career. Why not do a little dance? After games when you play that good that you can get a star you can maybe move like a Finnish dance artist, he told Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune. source: http://prohockeytalk.nbcsports.com/2014/10/22/video-raanta-shuts-out-flat-flyers-in-emergency-start/
