TV:

The Chicago Blackhawks look to snap their mini skid as they head into Philadelphia to take on the suddenly surging Flyers.

The Blackhawks got back in the win column in their last outing but a 5-5 stretch in their last 10 contests has dropped them out of the top seed in the Western Conference and into fifth place, a single point behind the Colorado Avalanche. Chicago is undoubtedly one of the best teams in the game as they have a ton of offensive firepower, a great blue line and a goaltender in Corey Crawford who has stepped up to the occasion when called upon. Chicago will look to claw their way back up the standings and while a division title and top seed looks unlikely at this point they can reach the three seed if they play their cards right down the stretch. They head into Philadelphia to take on a Flyers team who seems to be hitting their stride and after sweeping a weekend series with the Penguins they have to be playing with a ton of confidence.

The Flyers have gone 7-2-1 in their last 10 contests and are finally starting to play like the team many expected would challenge for the Metropolitan division. While some may argue that their sweep against the Pens was contextual as the teams always play each other tight and Pittsburgh is without some of their top players you still have to go out there and perform. The Flyers look like a team that could pull off an upset or two in the Eastern Conference playoffs as they are getting stable goaltending from Steve Mason and have been playing very well in the offensive zone.  This game is at a pick em price at the moment which is a little upsetting as I would have jumped all over the Flyers had they been a home underdog but now you have to consider that Chicago who is better than Philly by 15 points is getting even money. Take the Blackhawks.
