WGD: Game 60: Red Wings vs. Flyers

This feels like deja-vu. The Wings and Flyers will face off at 6:00 P.M. this afternoon for the second half of their back-to-back and home-at-home. Yesterday didn’t end so well for the Red Wings as late game comeback was stifled in overtime. Here is the full post-game report:

Postgame: Wings can’t complete the comeback, lose 6-5 in overtime.

With both teams waiving their morning skates in favor of rest, don’t expect to see confirmed lines until the warm-up. I doubt there will be many changes though, so here are the lines.

Tyler Bertuzzi is back in a big way after contributing a goal in his first game back yesterday. He’ll stick on the top line with Larkin for sure.

The only other change is that Blashill has said Filip Hronek is going to play. It’s still to be determined who is going to come out to make that happen.

BETWEEN THE PIPES

Jonathan Bernier vs. Cam Talbot

It’s likely going to be the battle of the back-ups today. Cam Talbot will get his first start as a Flyer and Jonathan Bernier is following up on his shutout against the Ottawa Senators.

HOW TO WATCH

It’s a weird 6:00 P.M. ET start time today and the game will be broadcast on Fox Sports Detroit.
