The Flyers played tentatively in the early going. Chicago did not. Steve Mason was left high and dry and in a span of 2:06, the game was essentially over. Chicago out-shot Philadelphia, 19-9, in the first period and held a 3-0 lead.
When all was said and done, the Blackhawks came away with a shutout win as the Flyers fell in Chicago, 4-0, on Tuesday night at United Center.
