For the Flyers recently, it has been good times against Chicago.
On Thursday night, the Flyers (3-3-1) will look to complete a regular-season sweep of the Blackhawks (2-3-2).
Let's get into the essentials:
• When: 8:30 p.m. ET with Flyers Pregame Live at 8 p.m. ET
• Where: United Center
• Broadcast: NBC Sports Philadelphia
• Live stream: NBCSportsPhiladelphia.com and the NBC Sports MyTeams app
• If the Flyers can pick up a victory over the Blackhawks, they'll have won two straight games for the second time this month. The Flyers haven't won consecutive games twice in the month of October since 2015-16.
That's three seasons in a row without a winning streak of three games or more or a pair of two-game spurts during October.
It just shows you how up and down they've been in the season's opening month. The Flyers are 29-36-7 in October since 2013-14, constantly fighting to find early momentum.
They're trying to change that under a new head coach.
• The Flyers have won their last four meetings with the Blackhawks by a combined score of 14-5.
• Here are the NHL's points per game leaders so far:
1. David Pastrnak — 1.89
2. John Carlson — 1.82
3. Connor McDavid — 1.70
4. Leon Draisaitl — 1.60
5. Mika Zibanejad — 1.57
6. Brad Marchand — 1.56
7. Travis Konecny — 1.43
Konecny is off to the best start in his four-year career with 10 points (four goals, six assists) in seven games. Last season, it took him 20 games to reach 10 points.
• James van Riemsdyk is tied for 13th in the NHL with 35 shots. He is the only NHL player among the top 200 in shots without a point.
