Streaking Red Wings visit lowly Flyers

Feb 12, 2007 - 2:38 PM Detroit (36-15-6) at Philadelphia (14-3-8) 7:00 pm EST

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) - The Detroit Red Wings have won six of their last seven games. That is not good news for the worst team in the NHL.

The streaking Red Wings look to continue their stellar play Monday they visit the Philadelphia Flyers.

After having a five-game winning streak stopped in Friday's 1-0 loss to St. Louis, Detroit rebounded with a 7-4 triumph over Calgary on Sunday.

The Red Wings unleashed a season-high 50 shots against Calgary. They built a 3-0 lead after one period and held a 6-1 cushion after 40 minutes.

Henrik Zetterberg registered two goals and two assists in the win over the Flames. The Swede has seven goals and nine assists in his last seven games.

With Dominik Hasek and Chris Osgood battling injuries, Joey MacDonald likely will get the start in goal for the Red Wings. He picked up his first career win Sunday but stopped just 16-of-20 shots.

Detroit is one point behind first-place Nashville in the Central Division.

While the Red Wings are challenging for the Presidents' Trophy, the Flyers have just 36 points. They also are a woeful 4-15-7 at home.

The Flyers snapped a franchise-record 13-game home losing streak with a 4-3 victory over St. Louis on Saturday. Simon Gagne scored 27 seconds into overtime for the Flyers, who improved to 2-1-1 in their last four games overall.

Gagne scored twice against St. Louis and also tallied twice in Philadelphia's 5-4 overtime loss to Pittsburgh on Thursday.
