Detroit has lost five straight and is 0-5-2 in its past seven games following a 6-0 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday.

The Flyers are 3-0-1 in their past four games after a 3-2 win at the Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday. Brian Elliott made 28 saves to help Philadelphia win in regulation at Columbus for the first time since Dec. 13, 2005.

Flyers forward Travis Konecny has five assists in his past five games and leads Philadelphia with 24 points (eight goals, 16 assists) in 25 games.
They said it
"It's embarrassing to get beat 6-0 in your own building. I know we are all proud to wear this jersey, but we have to start playing like we are proud. I don't know how much further rock bottom is, but it's got to be pretty close, so we've got to find a way to play a simple game and keep pushing forward." -- Red Wings forward Luke Glendening
"It feels like we haven't won in this building forever. They come out strong, and they're a big, heavy team. I remember a bunch of overtimes against them. We did a good job of closing it down late." -- Flyers forward Scott Laughton on winning in Columbus
