Game Thread: Red Wings vs. Flyers

New, comments

A very busy weekend for the Red Wings concludes as they head to the Wachovia Center to take on the Philadelphia Flyers with the possibility of clinching a playoff spot with a victory.

While the Red Wings seven-game winning streak came to an end in the lost to Nashville yesterday, the 12-game point streak does continue, and the Red Wings are two points behind the Predators with four games to play (and two games in hand).

As Casey mentioned, Detroit will give the start in net to Chris Osgood: his first appearance in net since March 3 against Vancouver and first start since January 27 against Minnesota. In fact: Osgood has not won in regulation since November 3 when he shut out the Boston Bruins in Game 13.

For the Flyers, they're in the eighth playoff spot in the Eastern Conferece, but only because of the tiebreaker over the New York Rangers.

The game is a 12:30 p.m. ET start on NBC. Please comment below.
