The Malik Report

Tonight’s Opponent, The Philadelphia Flyers

from Sam Carchidi of Philly.com,

They will get their first look at Detroit’s new digs, Little Caesars Arena, when they face the Red Wings on Tuesday night.

“We’ve got to be ready; it’s a big two points up for grabs,” center Sean Couturier said Sunday after the Flyers outlasted Metro-leading Washington, 2-1, in overtime. The previous day, they defeated New Jersey, 3-1. “What we did these last few games, it won’t matter if we lose.”

The Flyers are soaring, playing with confidence and winning close games.

“Early in the season, that was one of the issues: We just didn’t find a way,” captain Claude Giroux said. “We were playing good hockey, but we just didn’t find ways. Right now we’re finding ways, and we can’t stop here.”

The Flyers have seven victories in their last eight games and have won three straight. They are 15-5-1 since ending their 10-game losing streak and have climbed into the Eastern Conference’s top wild-card spot.

Hicketts may have had baptism by space heater last night.  Tonight will be more like the real thing.

Carchidi tweet a few minutes ago…

Mrazek expected to go for Red Wings. Going for third straight shutout

I haven’t seen any other report about Mrazek including anything from the Wings’ beat writers.
