Chicago vs. Philadelphia,

Score: 3 - 4
Total: -110/+6½ Under
Scoring was not Chicago's problem last season, but the Blackhawks allowed the second most goals in the NHL, but their defensive play was an issue that is being addressed . The arrival of G Lehner from the Islanders as well as a more pronounced defensive attitude should improve those numbers dramatically. Tonight Im betting that the Blackhawks will have problems penetrating the back of the net vs G Carter Hart, who posted a 2.83 goals-against average and .917 save percentage during his rookie season, and for the Flyers to not find alot of room on the ice vs a group that says its dedicated to playing much better D.
The last 4 meetings in this series have stayed under the total.
