The Detroit Red Wings travel to Philadelphia to face the Flyers in both these teams' first game back after the All-Star break. The Red Wings headed into the break losing 5 of 7 and traded wins and losses in the last four. The Flyers had lost 13 in a row before winning back to back games against the Kings and the Jets.
Detroit Red Wings
The Red Wings are in a bit of a funk, losing 9 of their last 13. They've managed to score goals, averaging 3 per game in their last 10, but they've given up 35 goals in that stretch. They're now 6-12-3 on the road.
The Flyers were in a truly terrible situation before their last two games, losing 13 straight, but managed to pull off two home wins, a 4-3 win in OT against the Los Angeles Kings and a 3-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets. They play slightly better at home, going 8-10-4.
For me, this comes down to how these two teams play each other. The Flyers have dominated the last three games, going 3-0 and outscoring the Red Wings 4.00 to 0.67, scoring 12 and giving up only 2 in those three games. They've won 8 of the last 10 vs the Red Wings, going 8-0-2. The Flyers came into the All-Star break with a glimmer of hope, winning their last two, and I expect them to take this one as well.
