Game 31 Preview: Philadelphia Flyers @ Chicago Blackhawks

Philadelphia Flyers (13-14-3) @ Chicago Blackhawks (22-6-5), 8:00pm, NBCSN/TSN2 The Philadelphia Flyers will look to end their two-game losing streak tonight, but it’s not going to be an easy task, as they conclude their road trip against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Is It Time to Change the NHL’s Suspension Policy?

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a fan of the Flyers, Canucks, or the Penguins. If you watch hockey on a regular basis, you’ve seen the inconsistency that comes from the NHL’s Department of Player Safety. Run by former player and Hall-of-Famer Brendan Shanahan, veteran of over 1,500 games played and well aware of the violence hockey contains, and formerly Colin Campbell, the department has allowed players like the Flyers’ own Zac Rinaldo, the Sabres’ Patrick Kaleta, Steve Ott and John Scott to run amuck with little fear of consequence.
