Players to watch:
CHI- Patrick Kane
Kane returns to Philly for the first time since he scored the Cup-winning goal in June 2010.
PHI- Scott Hartnell
Hartnell has been awfully consistent since the start of December with 16 points in the last 14 games.

Starting goaltenders:

PHI- Ilya Bryzgalov (2011-12 stats: 14-8-3, 3.01 GAA)

Injury report:
CHI- Steve Montador (upper body, out), Marcus Kruger (concussion, out)
PHI- Jaromir Jagr (groin, out), Chris Pronger (concussion, out), Blair Betts (knee, out)

Game thoughts:
For just the second time, the Blackhawks and Flyers meet in a 2010 Stanley Cup rematch. And for the first time, they will meet in Philadelphia. Peter Laviolette’s gang will be looking to rebound from a disappointing loss in the Winter Classic on Monday, while the Blackhawks can regain the Western Conference lead with a win. I would expect to see some fireworks and great action. If Bryzgalov isn’t lost in the woods with a thermos, go with the Flyers…
Prediction: Flyers 3, Blackhawks 2 (SO)

The rest of today’s predictions:
Bruins over Flames
Jets over Maple Leafs
Rangers over Panthers
Lightning over Senators
Blues over Oilers
Stars over Predators
Coyotes over Kings
Sharks over Blue Jackets

Did a Habs Fan Celebrate Lars Eller’s Hat Trick By Throwing a ***** on the Ice?

It sure looks like a ***** in this picture, and I wouldn’t put it past a Montreal Canadiens fan to bring such an item to a game in anticipation of one of the Habs netting a hat trick.  I just hope that it wasn’t in slightly used condition when it made it’s way to the ice. Whether or not the red, phallic-shaped item found amongst the hats strewn on the ice following Montreal...

Did the Canucks Make the Right Decision By Not Starting Roberto Luongo Against the Bruins?

The TD Garden was a house of horrors...

Lightning-Canadiens Preview

Leading the league in goals, the Tampa Bay Lightning's Steven Stamkos remains one of the most potent scoring forwards in the NHL.
