The Flyers stayed hot at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday by shutting out the Blackhawks, 4-0.

They also did a beautiful job honoring Ray Emery.

The Flyers and Blackhawks wore the No. 29 on their helmets to remember Emery, who died on July 15 at the age of 35.

Emery played for both clubs during his 11-year career and won a Stanley Cup with Chicago in 2013, while helping the Flyers get to the Final in 2010.

"Ray was an outstanding teammate and an extremely gifted goaltender," Flyers president Paul Holmgren said in July. "He had exceptional athleticism, was a fierce competitor and battled in every game he played with the Flyers.

"His performances through the 2009-10 season were a very big part of the team's success in making the playoffs and reaching the Stanley Cup Final. Ray's talent, work ethic and determination helped him enjoy a successful 11-year NHL career."
