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

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
