Nine days after combining to score 13 goals in a wild game in Nashville, the Philadelphia Flyers and Nashville Predators will slug it out again Thursday night at the Wells Fargo Center. The Predators (3-2-1) scored a pair of power-play goals in the final 1:17 of the Oct. 10 contest to pull out a wild 6-5 victory. The Flyers (4-2-0) rallied back from a 3-0 deficit to take a 5-3 lead, but their failed challenge on Scott Hartnell's game-tying, power-play goal resulted in another penalty and led to Filip Forsberg's game-winner with 35.6 seconds remaining in regulation.
The Toronto Maple Leafs are quickly proving they can win any style of game. The Detroit Red Wings, who did not play Tuesday as they awaited their game against the Maple Leafs on Wednesday at the Air Canada Centre, are impressed by a team that is being driven by a nucleus of good, young players. "These guys have taken their game to the next level," Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall told The Detroit News.
