It was the second consecutive whitewashing Detroit has been given and the ninth consecutive defeat.

Philadelphia dominated the entire game but especially the first period but could not hit paydirt.

Finally, Scott Laughton was able to solve Red Wing netminder, Jonathan Bernier at the 9:31 mark of the second period.

Kevin Hayes got some insurance with a short handed breakaway goal at just 2:47 of the final stanza.

Matt Niskanen closed the books on the scoring with yet another short handed goal into the wide open Detroit net.

Elliott now has posted shutouts in 2 of his last three games.

The Flyer netminder stopped 16 shots in the victory…. Tyler Pitlick kept the shutout in tact with a skate save to bail out Elliott who was out of position.

Ford the ‘Wings, Jonathan Bernier kicked aside 26 shots.
