The puck drops at the United Center on Tuesday, April 26 at 8:00 AM for Chicago Blackhawks versus the Philadelphia Flyers. Four points apart in the entire league, we can anticipate a close game between the two. While it’s definitely not a game everyone will be waiting for, it will definitely be interesting to see. Why? Read on below. 


On the board, the Blackhawks hold the higher ground. 7th in the Central Division, the team has won 26 games and lost 42, earning them 63 points. It is not impressive to say the least but better against the Flyers’ 24-43 record. However, in the 31 times they’ve gone head to head, Chicago has only bested Philadelphia nine times, leaving the Flyers to win the other 22.  


The modern-day Chicago Blackhawks has more than its fair share of issues in the league. Inefficient play in both home games and visiting games, racking up 42 losses, it's difficult to see this team going anything higher than 27th in the tournament rankings. Averaging 2.6 goals and 3.6 goals against per match, it’s a good thing they’re up against a team that’s objectively worse than them in numbers.  


Coming in at 29th place in the NHL, the Philadelphia Flyers team has collected 43 defeats and only a measly 24 victories. Placing a little below Chicago at 29th, their team statistics shows 27 powerplay goals and a 75.3 penalty kill percentage. Then again, as underwhelming as they are, the Philadelphia is somehow still getting wins. They’re a pleasant surprise every now and then.  


With this brief analysis of the game, we’ve managed to pick our bet. With grievances from their most recent loss to the Flyers, the Blackhawks will be making sure they put up a fight this time around. It’ll be a close game for sure, especially with how Philly’s Cam Atkinson and Carter Hart are playing right now; the Blackhawks are already probably sweating. What evens this out is Hart and Atkinson are currently out so that window of opportunity will fuel Chicago’s spirit. The Blackhawks’ main scorers are very much well, and for that, they have the advantage. It’s Chicago for this one, folks, but the sure way to go is to watch the game and see for yourself. 8 AM, April 26. 


8 AM (PST), Tuesday, April 26, 2022. United Center, Chicago, IL.
