First off. HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY! We need Shanny and McCarty to play tonight, but Shanny's a Devil and DMC is Grand Rapids.
Philadelphia outlook: Philly currently represents the 4 seed in the East but have streaking Pittsburgh fast approaching in the points column. Last time the Flyers won in Detroit? 1988. Biron will likely get the start for the Flyers as they look to make a big statement on nationwide television following the loss to the Rangers on Sunday on NBC.
Detroit outlook: The Red Wings come into tonight's game hoping to increase their point total and head for the top seed in the West. The league's highest scoring team looks to also improve upon their stellar home record. Hopefully Hossa and Holmstrom will continue their recovery and will soon have the Wings firing on all cylinders.
Who to watch:
Philly: Simon Gagne, Jeff Carter, and Mike Richards
Detroit: Johan Franzen, Henrik Zetterberg, and Nick Lidstrom
Puck drops at 7:30 PM ET (or 11:30 Dublin time) and can be seen on Versus.
