Nikolay Zherdev scores in 4-1 victory over Chicago, Flyers take over NHL lead
The Philadelphia Flyers made a strong statement with a strong effort.
Jeff Carter had two goals and an assist, and rookie Sergei Bobrovsky made 30 saves in Philadelphia’s 4-1 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday.
Nikolay Zherdev and Scott Hartnell added goals, and Claude Giroux had four assists for the Flyers in the only regular-season rematch of last year’s Stanley Cup finals.
Philadelphia was in charge most of the game against the defending champion Blackhawks, who defeated the Flyers in six games in the finals.
