The Detroit Red Wings host the red-hot Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday, who have won eight straight games. The Red Wings, meanwhile, have lost three of their last five.

Detroit and Philadelphia have split the season series thus far, with both games being played in Philadelphia. For Detroit, this is the second of five straight games at home. They dropped a 4-1 decision against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday.

Special teams will be a huge factor in today’s game, as the Flyers enter the game with the league’s top power play (25 percent). The Red Wings have not allowed a power play goal in seven games (although they did allow a shorthanded goal against Columbus). The Red Wings must stay out of the penalty box and take advantage of power play opportunities, as the Flyers’ penalty kill ranks just 22nd in the league.

Jimmy Howard will get the start in goal for Detroit, his first start since returning from a groin injury. He played in relief of Petr Mrazek Friday night and did not allow a goal on seven shots. Howard enters the game with an impressive .942 save percentage and 1.75 goals against average.

This is a big game for the Red Wings, who currently sit at sixth place in the Atlantic Division and are well out of a playoff spot.
