Today's the day. Can Detroit tie the all-time record for most consecutive victories at home? If they want to do this, they're going to have to beat the last organization to have done it (36 years ago), the Philadelphia Flyers.

This is a team coming off an aggravating home loss to the New York Rangers (against whom they are 0-5 this season). The Flyer's allowed three power play goals to the Eastern-leading Rangers and Kimmo Timonen was none too happy about the effort level from the Orange Shirts.

Expect a much better effort level out of Philadelphia tonight. This one's going to be tough, but tough is what the Red Wings do.

Comment away and let's go Red Wings.
