by Adam Kimelman @NHLAdamK / NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia Flyers forward Michael Raffl admitted there were things off the ice that may have been affecting his play recently, but it certainly didn't look like anything was bothering him Tuesday. 

Raffl scored two goals to help the Flyers to a 4-3 win against the Detroit Red Wings at Wells Fargo Center, moving Philadelphia (33-23-12) within one point of the Red Wings (34-25-11) for the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference. The Flyers are 7-1-1 in their past nine games.
