The Red Wings are coming off of a 2-1 shootout win against the Ducks Friday night at home. On the other hand, the Flyers (31-17-7) are coming off of a 5-2 loss to the New York Rangers yesterday at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers have lost five of their last seven games.
Jake Voracek will not play for the Flyers tonight; Eric Wellwood was called up from Adirondack and will take his place in the lineup. Sergei Bobrovsky will be between the pipes for the Flyers tonight. Ilya Bryzgalov is still weak from his illness but will back up Bobrovsky. Detroit Red Wings backup goaltender Joey MacDonald will be in net tonight as well.
The puck drops at 7:30 pm tonight. The game can be seen on the NBC Sports Network (formerly Versus) and can be heard on 94.1 WIP.
