Wednesday NHL Odds: Philadelphia Flyers vs Chicago Blackhawks
Chicago Blackhawks: Relying on Antti Raanta in goal
With starting goalie Corey Crawford out at least three weeks with a lower-body injury suffered on Sunday, Antti Raanta will see the majority of time in net for the Blackhawks. Raanta looked mighty impressive on Tuesday night in a 6-2 blowout of the Dallas Stars. He was also aided by his defensive unit, but he still looked good nonetheless. Raanta should be in goal tonight when the Flyers come to town.
Philadelphia Flyers: Ray Emery returns to Chicago
Flyers goalie Ray Emery played for Chicago last season, winning the Jennings Trophy in conjunction with Crawford for allowing the fewest goals in the NHL. With Chicago, Emery was 17-1-0 with a GAA of 1.94. It is unknown who will start in net tonight for the Flyers, but it could very well be Emery. The Flyers have won the last two meetings against Chicago since losing to the Blackhawks in the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals.
