Thoughts on the Blackhawks

The Flyers won and if you just look at the score they did it handily, defeating the Chicago Blakhawks 3-0 last night. What that score doesn’t tell you is that Chicago is struggling worse than the Flyers to score right now. Robert Esche’s shutout victory over them last night was the third straight shutout for Chicago. What the 3-0 score also doesn’t tell you is that the Flyers still have absolutely no scoring depth. Once again Peter Forsberg and Simon Gagne did the scoring for the Flyers. With Mike Knuble out with a broken finger for roughly two weeks, the Flyers really need some additional scoring outside of their top guys.

Good Things:

  • The Flyers found a way to rebound from the atrocious 8-2 loss to the Penguins on Saturday night
  • Robert Esche played well in net stopping all 26 shots he faced
  • Denis Gauthier laid some big hits.
  • The Flyers set the record for most people at a sportting event wearing wigs

Bad Things:

  • The Flyers have two tough games remaining this week, with Tampa Bay on Thursday and the Washington Capitals on Saturday night. Both teams bring more speed than Chicago showed last night.
  • The Flyers set the record for most people at a sportting event wearing wigs
