Covers Preview - The Detroit Red Wings' potent power play is a significant reason for the team's strong play over the last nine contests (5-2-2). The Red Wings look to keep their good fortune going on Wednesday when they host the skidding Philadelphia Flyers. Detroit collected two goals with the man advantage for the fifth time in that stretch en route to a 4-3 victory over Ottawa on Monday.
