The Philadelphia Flyers six game winning streak was broken on Monday with a 4-1 loss to the Loss Angeles Kings. Regardless, the team will try and keep it rolling despite the loss as they take on the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday. With the Flyers having won six of their last seven, they'll have quite the matchup against the Wings who are looking to win three straight games for the first time this year. During the Flyers hot streak, Jakub Voracek has really turned it up with 11 points in his past seven games, on the season he leads the NHL with 33 assists. ""We gave ourselves a chance to win [against the Kings], we had some opportunities on power play and some other good chances. That being said, I think we identified some areas we need to get back to the way we were playing during our winning streak. We were doing things really well. It's about finding that commitment and finding what we need to do to be successful."" - Flyers defenseman Andrew MacDonald
