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

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
