The Detroit Red Wings suffered a rough 3-1 loss against the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday, extending their current losing streak to six games – their longest this season. Despite being outscored 27-9 during their slump, they won seven of their previous eight matches.

Ville Husso, who has a 23-16-6 record with a 2.93 GAA and.904 save percentage this season, made 34 saves in the game. Magnus Hellberg, who has a 3-6-1 record with a 3.11 GAA and a.895 save percentage, has never faced the Blackhawks but holds a 1-0-0 career record against Chicago with a 1.00 GAA and a.938 save percentage. The Red Wings are currently scoring the 11th fewest goals per game (2.95) and conceding the 13th most goals on defense (3.25). Their penalty kill ranks 19th (77.7%) and their power play ranks 21st (20.0%).
