Raanta leads Blackhawks past Flyers 4-0
CHICAGO (AP) --- Antti Raanta made 32 saves to earn a shutout in his first
start of the season, and Patrick Kane scored two power-play goals to lead the
Chicago Blackhawks past the Philadelphia Flyers 4-0 on Tuesday night.
Chicago's Brandon Saad and Bryan Bickell scored along with Kane in a 2:06
flurry late in the first period.
Raanta was sharp as he stepped in for Corey Crawford --- Chicago's No. 1 goalie
who is out day-to-day with an upper-body injury --- to record his second career
shutout. Among his saves were two point-blank stops on Philadelphia's Claude
Giroux and one on Matt Read late in the second period.
Besides their first goals this season, Saad and Bickell each had assists as
Chicago's third line, centered by Brad Richards, clicked and the Blackhawks
improved to 4-0-1.
