Philadelphia Flyers (12-13-2) @ Detroit Red Wings (14-7-7), 8:00pm, NBCSN After suffering an offensively embarrassing loss on Monday and running into problems the team had earlier in the season, the Philadelphia Flyers hope to return to the win column tonight on the road against the Detroit Red Wings. Philly has won two of their last three, but the last two games haven’t been pretty for the Orange and Black, as they’ve failed to create many scoring chances.
