Red Wings Vs. Flyers: Philadelphia Looks For Bounce-Back Victory In Motor City

The Philadelphia Flyers travel Sunday to face the Western Conference's Detroit Red Wings (7:30 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network).

The Philadelphia Flyers will hit the road Sunday in hopes that a getaway is just what they need to get back on track, as they visit the Detroit Red Wings in a inter-conference match up at the Joe Louis Arena (7:30 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network). The Flyers (31-17-7, 69 points) are just 1-3-1 in their last five games, while the Red Wings (37-17-2, 76 points) are searching for their 20th consecutive victory at home.

On Saturday, the Flyers gave up three unanswered goals in a 5-2 home loss to Atlantic Division rival, the New York Rangers.The was Philly's second loss to the league-leading Rangers in just a six-day span.

It is still unclear if Flyers' starting goaltender, Ilya Bryzgalov, will play because of an illness. If he cannot play, the Flyers will need to turn to Sergei Bobrovsky to help Philadelphia earn just its second victory in Detroit in over 20 seasons.

Meanwhile, Detroit is rolling, especially at home where it has won 19 straight and is looking to tie a NHL record of 20 consecutive victories in its friendly confines. Ironically, the Red Wings would tie the 1975-76 Flyers and 1929-30 Boston Bruins as winners of 20 in a row at home.
