The Flyers are 0-2 in shootouts this season, but at least now they're finally getting points.
The Flyers squandered a late game-tying goal by Jakub Voracek with their second straight shootout loss, this time to the Anaheim Ducks 4-3 at home on Tuesday. It's their fourth straight loss, bringing their record to 0-2-2.
The Chicago Blackhawks (30-8-11, 1st in Central) haven't always "played sixty" this season. Much of the time, their talent and offensive skills have carried them through to wins - or at least points.
However, the Blackhawks are just 4-1-5 in their past 10 games, and they are coming off Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss versus the Avalanche. Friday, they will be facing the high-flying Ducks (36-8-5, 1st in league), who are on a 7-game winning streak -- and who absolutely obliterated the Canucks 9-1 on Anaheim ice Wednesday night.
There's no kind words to describe what happened in Anaheim last night. The only players not to record points were Cam Fowler...
