The Two O’Clock Number: 9

Al Bello

The Flyers have had some pretty decent success over Chicago at the Wells Fargo Center.

9 – The number of consecutive regular season home wins the Flyers have over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Despite the fact that the Blackhawks have been dominant in recent years (see: 2010 Stanley Cup Finals), the Flyers have handled them pretty well at the Wells Fargo Center.

You have to go all the way back to November 9, 1996 to see a regular season Blackhawks win in Philadelphia. That game was a pretty strong outing for Chicago, who won 4-1 despite being pretty heavily outshot. John LeClair had the lone goal for the Flyers, getting an assist from Dale Hawerchuk. Current terrible general manager for the New York Islanders Garth Snow got the start in net, but was pulled in favor of Ron Hextall after letting in 3 goals on 19 shots.

Since then, the Flyers have gone 15-3-0-1 against the Hawks, which is a pretty good record against any team, let alone the current dominant force in the NHL. Of course, the last time those two met, things got a little ugly for the Flyers. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen again.

A win tonight would bump that number up to 10, which would be awesome.
