Blackhawks seeking eighth straight victory

Philadelphia (19-8-7) at Chicago (18-6-7), 8:30 pm EST

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Two of the hottest teams in the NHL clash Friday when the Philadelphia Flyers open a six-game road trip against the Chicago Blackhawks at the United Center.

The Blackhawks are on an 11-2-2 run and will be after their eighth straight victory, while the Flyers come into the contest with an 8-1-2 mark in December.

Chicago's winning streak - its longest since an eight-game run in January 1981 - was extended Saturday as Cristobal Huet made 30 saves in a 3-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks.

The Blackhawks got goals from Patrick Sharp, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, who has five goals and eight assists in his last 10 games. Andrew Ladd registered an assist to extend his points streak to five games.

The Flyers, visiting Chicago for the first time since January 2006, kept rolling Tuesday with a 6-4 win over the Ottawa Senators.

Jeff Carter netted his league-leading 26th goal and has scored at least once in five of his last six contests.

The Flyers have moved within two points of the Atlantic Division-leading New York Rangers (22-12-3), but face a Chicago team that is 10-1-4 at home this season.
