INJURY TO WATCH
Philadelphia defenseman Johnny Oduya (lower body) is questionable to play tonight. Left winger Michael Raffl (upper body) and goalie Michal Neuvirth (lower body) are both out until early April. Goaltender Brian Elliott (abdominal) is out until late March.
The Red Wings are in a freefall, which will help them in the sweepstakes for the No. 1 pick in the NHL Draft. Detroit is currently on a 10-game losing skid, the latest defeat being a 5-1 loss at the Avalanche two nights ago. Nine of the 10 contests were on the road. The Flyers have won two in a row, defeating the visiting Capitals 6-3 on Sunday night. The Flyers have won both games in the series this season and with Detroit totally checked out, look for the visitors to make it three in a row tonight on national television.
