A pair of teams trying to gain the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference take the ice in the City of Brotherly Love as the Philadelphia Flyers host the Detroit Red Wings.
Just when the Detroit Red Wings look like they’re going to make a playoff run, they do something totally stupid; Like getting shut out at home to the Toronto Maple Leafs the day after beating the New York Rangers.
The Red Wings need every point they can get, and leaving two easy points on the table against the NHL’s worst team is not the way to go.
Detroit comes into this matchup against a Philadelphia team that is nipping at its heels for the Eastern Conference’s final playoff spot. Unfortunately for the Red Wings, this game is on the road, and it’s not a situation they’ve been particularly good in as of late.
The Wings are just 2-8 in their last 10 road games and they’ve dropped their last seven on the road to Eastern Conference teams.
Detroit is mediocre on offense and defense, and the Wings will have their hands full trying to slow down a very dangerous Flyers team.
The Flyers are within striking distance of a postseason berth and need to win this game against Detroit. Philadelphia is 7-2-1 in its last 10 games and has started to click offensively. The Flyers are 18-9-7 at home and are 5-1 in their last six home games where they’ve averaged 3.66 goals per game in those contests.
It’s unclear whether Steve Mason or Michal Nuevirth will be between the pipes in this matchup. Neuvirth was forced to sit against the Florida Panthers Saturday night while he nursed a stomach ailment. He’s been the better netminder this year posting a 16-8-4 record and a 2.29 GAA.
The pressure will be on the Flyers’ offense to score some goals on Detroit’s Petr Mrazek who has a 2.20 GAA and a .924 save percentage.

Both of these teams are in desperate need of these two points, but I’m going to side with the home team in this one. Detroit has been terrible on the road lately and the Flyers are playing very well at home.
