First period wrap: Hawks 0, Flyers 0

The Chicago Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers are scoreless after the first period at the United Center.

For the second consecutive day the Hawks had the edge in scoring chances in the opening 20 minutes but Sergei Bobrovsky was up to the challenge in net for the Flyers. His best save came when he stuck his right pad out to stop Patrick Sharp on the doorstep.

The Hawks played well on defense not allowing a Philadelphia forecheck much opportunity to cause damage.

Both teams had a power play chance but could not score. Bryan Bickell and Scott Hartnell had a short fight early in the game.
