Flyers Clip Red Wings

On a jammed-packed sports day in Philadelphia highlighted by the Eagles-Giants NFC Divisional Round playoff game, the Flyers threw down with the Detroit Red Wings in Detroit.

The Game

Scott Laughton snapped a scoreless tie midway through the third period and paved the way to a 2-1 Flyers win. Noah Cates scored for the Flyers, who are 9-3 in their last 12 games. Carter Hart stopped 30 shots in the winning effort. Detroit forward Lucas Raymond scored the lone Red Wings goal his 15th of the season with 41.6 seconds left in regulation to spoil Hart’s shutout bid.

The victory ended Philadelphia’s three-game losing streak against the Red Wings and pulled the Flyers back to .500 20-20-7.  Laughton scored first at 9:01 of the third period with his 12th goal of the season. Laughton lifted a backhand shot over the glove of Red Wings goalie Ville Husso. Cates added the second Flyers goal at 13:23 of the final period for his sixth of the season.

The Red Wings won all three meetings with the Flyers last season. They’d also won two in a row from Philadelphia on home ice. In the all-time history of the two franchises, the Red Wings have never won four consecutive regular-season games over the Flyers. Philadelphia’s last win over the Red Wings was a 3-0 shutout victory on Feb. 3, 2020, at Detroit. Laughton also scored the game-winner in that victory.
