The Philadelphia Flyers tried to stop a 23-year streak of futility in Detroit. The Flyers have not beaten the Red Wings on the road since November 1988.

This matchup would stay scoreless until the first minute of the second period. The Flyers' James van Riemsdyk fired a shot on goal. He got it past Jimmy Howard and into the net. Philadelphia took a 1-0 lead in Detroit.

Five minutes later, the Red Wings looked like they'd survived a mad scramble in front of the goal. But Philly's Andrej Meszaros had other ideas. Dan Carcillos redirected for the score 2-0 Flyers.

Then the Flyers grabbed their third goal of the night. Sean O'Donnell chipped it down to Scott Hartnell for a top shelf snapper over Howard. Philly led it 3-0.

The Red Wings came back strong in the final period. They scored twice and threatened to keep the Flyers winless streak going. It was a one-goal nail-biter at the end, but Philadelphia's defense was tough enough. Brian Boucher made 25 saves in all, and Philadelphia grabbed the long-awaited victory in Detroit.
