Antti Raanta was all smiles when he was informed that he would be making his season debut against the visiting Philadelphia Flyers. Corey Crawford missed the morning skate with an upper body injury. The Finnish netminder finished with 32 saves for his second career shutout as the Blackhawks pounded the Flyers 4-0.
Patrick Kane had 2 power play goals and Brandon Saad was the spark the third line needed getting his first goal of the year along with an assist. This ended the Hawks 4-game home stand (3-0-1-0) which spanned over eleven days.
