Flyers at Penguins
Weds. 8pm
     Watching the Flyers right now is very unsatisfying.  And with the Penguins, Red Wings and Stanley Cup Champion LA Kings coming at them in the next week, its shaping up as a tough month.
     Tuesday night  the Blackhawks got 3 goals in about 2 minutes to forge a 3-0 lead .  After a scoreless second, the Hawks added an early power play goal to make it 4-0.  
     Blackhawks back-up goalie Aanti Raanta started as starter Corey Crawford is out injured.  Coburn, Lecavalier and Jason Akeson were all scratched.
      Steve Mason is now 0-7-1 lifetime against the Hawks.  Ex-Flyers Dan Carcillo was in the line-up, returning to the team he won a Stanley Cup with.
