Connor Murphy scored for the Blackhawks.

Couturier upped his team-leading total to 10 goals by finishing Giroux's pass from close range four minutes into the second period to give Philadelphia a 3-0 lead.

Chicago got on the board with 3:47 remaining in the second when Murphy scored on a rebound.

That was the only goal the Blackhawks could muster despite coach Joel Quenneville reuniting the top line of Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp in hopes of kick-starting Chicago's offense which has three goals in its past three games.

Chicago's Corey Crawford stopped 28 shots.
