Before the Blackhawks headed home to begin a last-gasp attempt at catching the Blues in the Central Division, the defending Stanley Cup champions first had to take care of business against the Flyers.
At the scene of perhaps the franchise’s great triumph when it captured the 2010 Cup, the Hawks weren’t able to pick up two valuable points as they fell 3-2 to the Flyers in overtime Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center.
The point moved the Hawks into a tie for second place in the Central, eight points behind the surging Blues with a showdown set between the rivals for Wednesday night at the United Center.
Claude Giroux scored the game-winner for the Flyers with 4.2 seconds remaining in overtime while Scott Hartnell had two goals in regulation.
