The Philadelphia Flyers visit one of their least-favorite places when they go to Joe Louis Arena for this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game against the Detroit Red Wings (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN). The Flyers are 1-16 with two ties in Detroit since the start of the 1989-90 season, not including a pair of losses during the 1997 Stanley Cup Final.

Detroit won the first game between the teams this season, defeating the Flyers 5-2 at home on Oct. 12.

Quote of the Day

You get the right whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
