Tale of the Tape: Flyers vs. Devils
The Flyers and Devils get together for this week's edition of NBC Sports Network's Wednesday Night Rivalry.

When the Philadelphia Flyers and New Jersey Devils get together for this week's edition of NBC Sports Network's Wednesday Night Rivalry, the hatred and animosity will likely be ramped to even higher levels with so much on the line.

The Devils have won six in a row and eight straight against the Flyers, including Games 2-5 of their 2012 Eastern Conference Semifinal series. That past success goes out the window in the first half of this home-and-home series that Flyers goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov said his team can't lose or they are "done."

The Flyers are in 11th place in the East, three points out of eighth place and four points back of seventh-place New Jersey. Neither team has played well of late -- the Devils have two wins in their last nine games, while the Flyers are 1-3 in their last four games.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.

— Jordan Eberle on taking his game and the Edmonton Oilers to the next level
