The Flyers return from the All-Star break started with a successful weekend, earning three out of a possible four points against the Penguins and Avalanche.

For several weeks, the Flyers have been playing the league's best teams on a consistent basis. The next two games present an opportunity to earn some points against some of the league's worst teams.

It starts on Monday night with a game in Detroit against the last-place Red Wings.

Game time is 7:30 p.m.

Tyler Bertuzzi leads the Red Wings with 17 goals this season and was their only All-Star. He's due to break out of a slump soon with no points in six of his last seven games.
