Jakub Voracek scores on OT, Flyers beat Red Wings 4-3

"It wasn't a ideal 60 minutes, but I thought we had enough good stuff out there to win", Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg said.

Finally, we'll have to end on a note of uncertainty: Late in the second period, Schenn jumped and his elbow ended up making head contact with Red Wings defenseman Brendan Smith, who left the game for the remainder of the period before coming back for the third. It took him 11 games, but he's finally on the board in 2016-17.

But since then, it's been a lot of losses.

"If it would have been no goal on the ice it probably would have stayed no goal", Zetterberg said. "And I thought we were above but not tight to people". Zetterberg has just five points so far this season.

Now, granted, the length of the streak is a bit misleading.

Come on now, you didn't really think that the Chicago Cubs could win the World Series and the Detroit Red Wings could win in Philadelphia on the same night, did you?

The Flyers need a big victory to kind of stop the bleeding a bit, and the Red Wings seem to be the right team to do that against given Detroit's struggles on the road dating back to last season.

The Flyers have outscored the Wings 48-20 in those 11 games. Weve spent more time in our D-zone than in our O-zone. "I don't know what it is". So many good teams and good players in this league now, you turn pucks over they're going to make you pay.

"If we focus on our game, we'll do good things and good things will happen and we can win there for sure". The Flyers are 0-4 in their last 4 games following a win and 5-1 in their last 6 Wednesday games. With another game in Philadelphia next Tuesday, the Red Wings get two quick chances to end the odd, lengthy streak.

“We know what it is, we havent won there in a while, ” Henrik Zetterberg said. "But we can't focus on that, we have to focus on what we do". We havent been at our best the last two games and we want to get back to that.”. “Weve got to simplify a little more and grind teams a little more.

The Hurricanes claimed Frk on waivers from Detroit on October 9.

Frk scored 27 goals (44 points) in Grand Rapids last season. Possession is when you have the puck on your stick and sometimes you don't get any shots, but you hold on to it, you hold on to it, you hold on to it, and that is a very good defense, just by holding on to it. "Ultimately he has to be a top-six guy (in the NHL)". "By the time he got control of it, he felt the goalie was there".

In overtime, Detroit's Darren Helm had the puck on his stick in an excellent scoring position but passed it.

Blashill said he'll decide on any lineup changes after Tuesday's morning skate.

"We didn't manage the puck early, so we gave them momentum". Their team or our team? So weve got to get better at having more O-zone time.

Notable: The Flyers have allowed more goals (38) than any team in the National Hockey League.
