Lineup vs Flyers

winged_wheelWell, little Tomas Tatar will be trying to make to two for two in goals per game played in his NHL career as the Wings play host to the Philadelphia Flyers this afternoon.  According to Khan(!), Patrick Eaves is still nursing an infected elbow and will sit out today.  The Flyers are coming off of a 5-2 loss to the Ducks on New Year’s Eve.

Here are the lines that will face them:

Franzen-Zetterberg-Holmstrom
Hudler-Filppula-Bertuzzi
Draper-Helm-Tatar
Miller-Abdelkader-Mursak

Lidstrom-Stuart
Ericsson-Rafalski
Kronwall-Salei

Howard (starting)
Osgood

Historically speaking, the Wings have dominated the Flyers at home.  The Flyers are also without Captain Neanderthal Chris Pronger…so expect a tough game, because history doesn’t mean crap (in terms of predicting games).
