Pavel Datsyuk celebrates with his teammates after scoring in the third period of the Flyers 5-2 loss to the Red Wings.
The Flyers played like the team that wanted it more offensively. They fired 34 shots on Jimmy Howard and the Red Wings.
But the defense and goalie Ray Emery struggled and the offense couldn't finish.
More of what has plagued the Flyers all season continued on Saturday, as the Flyers capped off a weekend with back-to-back losses, falling to Detroit, 5-2, at Joe Lewis Arena.
The Red Wings would strike first, marking the fourth game this season that the opponent has scored first on the Flyers, at 7:13, as Todd Bertuzzi finished off a wrap-around for the opening goal.
Detroit picked up the second goal as well on the power play at 11:08 of the second, as some quick passing resulted in a goal for Niklas Kronwall. Just 34 seconds later, Erik Gustafsson, starting in place of Andrej Meszaros, scored on a long shot from the point to beat Howard and cut the lead to one.
