WATCH LIVE: Chicago Blackhawks at Philadelphia Flyers

NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Chicago Blackhawks Reuters

You could argue that the Chicago Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers might collectively be as strong as they’ve been since Chris Pronger was practicing puck banditry. One undeniable thing is that both teams are currently in playoff position in their respective conferences, so Tuesday’s NBCSN game is for positioning; you can stream the action by clicking on the link below:

The Philadelphia Flyers are on a two-game winning streak and are 7-2-1 in their last 10 games. They currently hold a one-point lead over two Metropolitan Division foes (Columbus and the New York Rangers) and just a three-point margin over Washington, although they do have tiebreaker advantages over all of them. Still, the margin of error is pretty small for Philly.

Meanwhile, Chicago doesn’t seem to be in much danger of missing the playoffs or even falling to the wild card level. Instead, they’re battling the Colorado Avalanche for the second spot in the Central Division (and home-ice advantage if that became a first-round series).

Both teams have something to play for, although the Flyers have more on the line. Should be a good show.

    Spring cleaning is coming early for the Flyers this year. They’ve got a season sweep coming their way.

        Not when I realize the Flyers haven’t won a cup since ’75.

        Keep waiting for that Cup.

    Flyers definitely earned that W tonight. Props to them for a real strong game.

    Not too thrilled with the Hawks team defense for the last, oh, 2 months.

    Raanta played well, so I’m happy for him.

    Last year Chicago coasted through the last 3 weeks of the season and didn’t wake up until Detroit pushed them to the edge. The boys had better wake up sooner this year, because they’re not getting the favorable bounces they’re accustomed to. Combine that with being out worked and out hustled almost every game, and we have a recipe for disappointment in the Windy City.
