They played into overtime six nights earlier in Chicago with the Blackhawks winning 2-1. The Predators earned points in their seventh straight game before a sellout crowd, continuing their best start since the 2010-11 season when they got points in each of their first eight. For Neal, it was the fifth hat trick of his career. Acquired in a trade with Pittsburgh in June, Neal has five goals in four games. Filip Forsberg had two assists. Ben Smith and Andrew Shaw scored for Chicago. With Chicago trailing 3-1, Shaw tipped a rebound past goalie Pekka Rinne at 12:36 of the third. That gave Chicago fans making the trip down for the game a reason to get loud again. The Blackhawks pulled goalie Antti Raanta for the extra attacker. Rinne gloved the puck out of the air with 1:18 left with Shaw trying to score. Chicago coach Joel Quenneville took his timeout, but the Blackhawks couldn’t beat Rinne despite outshooting Nashville 32-27. source:–nhl.html

Philadelphia Flyers vs. Chicago Blackhawks – Preview – October 21, 2014 – ESPN

“I don’t think it’s about the initial shot. It’s more about the second effort, having traffic at the net,” Toews said. “We (need) some ugly goals, get some offense going.” Antti Raanta , though, will get his first start of the season after the Blackhawks announced Tuesday that Crawford will miss this game due to an upper-body injury. The Finn went 1-0-1 versus the Flyers as a rookie last season, getting the win in a 7-2 rout at the United Center on Dec. 11. Chicago has five wins in its last six home games against the Flyers, including three in the 2010 Stanley Cup finals, but it’s 3-15-1 with one tie in the last 20 overall regular-season meetings. Philadelphia rallied from an early two-goal deficit for a 3-2 overtime victory in the latest meeting March 18. Giroux scored the winner to give him one goal and eight assists in his last four matchups. The Flyers captain has two goals and five assists in his last four games. Having to play on consecutive nights, Philadelphia might opt to give Ray Emery the start against his former team. Steve Mason is 0-6-1 with a 4.04 GAA in his last eight appearances against Chicago. source:

If we can get our game going five-on-five and draw some penalties on them, then we can go to work on the power play, said Wayne Simmonds , per CSN Philly . Philadelphia is off to a hot start with the man advantage, capitalizing on 31.8% of its opportunities. At the same time, the Flyers have been one of the worst teams in the league when it comes to killing penalties, so theyll need to play a disciplined game. Thats something they havent been known for traditionally, but this year might be different as theyve been charged with the least minor penalties in the league thus far (12). source:
