Tuesday, December 18th brings you an exciting NHL matchup as the Detroit Red Wings travel Philadelphia to take on the Flyers live from the Wells Fargo Center. Both teams were losers on Saturday night, as the Red Wings lost on the road to the Islanders 4-3, and the Flyers got beat up in Vancouver 5-1.
Detroit Red Wings
This will be the second game of the Red Wings current three game road trip that will end in Carolina on Thursday night. The Wings are 6-7-2 on the road this year, so no game is a gimme for this team. They come into Tuesday with a three game losing streak, with this game being the best chance for them to end it before they head back home to play Florida on Saturday.

Detroit is averaging 2.8 goals per game this year, which could explain their record, especially since they are giving up an average of 3.26 goals per game. Dylan Larkin comes into Tuesday as the Wings leading scorer with 14 goals and 18 assists. Projected starting goalie Jimmy Howard has a 10-7-4 record with a 2.69 GAA and a .922 save percentage.
Injury Report: LW Darren Helm, RW Anthony Mantha and Ds Mike Green and Danny DeKeyser are all listed as “out” for Tuesday’s game.
The Flyers come into this game losers of their last four games, and they’ve let their opponents score more than four goals in each of them, while they only managed to score more than one goal once during that span: 5 goals against Calgary in OT on Wednesday. It doesn’t matter where this team plays, lately they have just been awful.
It’s hard to win games when you give up an average of nearly four goals a game, but that is where this team stands. They’ve had their fare share of injuries at the goalie position, but still, you can’t win in this league if you can’t stop the puck. Claude Giroux is the Flyers leading scorer with 11 goals and 28 assists. Projected starting goalie Alex Lyon has an 0-1-0 record with a 5.07 GAA and a .806 save percentage.
Injury Report: Gs Anthony Stolarz, Michal Neuvirth and Brian Elliot are all listed as “questionable” for Tuesday, while Cs Corban Knight and Pascal Laberge, as well as D Samuel Morin are all listed as “out.”

Free Detroit Red Wings vs. Philadelphia Flyers NHL Prediction:
With all of the problems the Flyers are having with their goaltending position at this point in the season, you have to give Detroit the benefit of the doubt and pick them as the favorite in this game. Not that Detroit is a fearsome scoring machine, but the Flyers have been giving up goals like they’re Christmas presents from a mall Santa lately.
Take Detroit to win this game on the road on Tuesday, and given the circumstances, I think this will be a high scoring affair.
