The Red Wings (22-21-6) swept a home-and-home set from the Flyers (15-24-8) coming out of the All-Star break.
Seider was a force in both games.
“I like to temper everything, because I think it’s really important to understand that every player needs to grow and certainly young players continue to grow, but if we’re being honest, his impact has been huge,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “That’s just the reality of it and I’m not going to pretend like it’s not the case.
“Do I think Moritz can continue to get better? Absolutely. I think he has gotten better. It’s still a balance of knowing how much he can bite off. I think as the season’s wore on, he’s had a bigger and bigger impact because of opportunity.”
Seider gave his team a 3-1 lead at 9:05 of the third period with his fifth goal of the season. It was critical because the Flyers cut the deficit just 44 seconds later when Scott Laughton scored.
Seider leads the Red Wings with 14 power-play points and 27 assists and is tied for third among NHL rookies with 32 points. His impact as a defender and puck-mover has been greater.
