DETROIT - The Flyers' playoff charge was delayed Wednesday in Detroit, and they will have to regroup if they are going to earn an Eastern Conference playoff spot. Red Wings 3, Flyers 0. In the most important game of the season for both teams, the Flyers started somewhat flat, allowed a bizarre first goal and never recovered before a frenzied crowd at Joe Louis Arena. Jimmy Howard made 30 saves to register his first shutout since opening night against Toronto on Oct 9. "Maybe we could have gotten in his face a little more, tried to take his eyes away, but he made a lot of good saves," defenseman Mark Streit said.

JAKE VORACEK is trying. Really, really trying. He's trying so hard out there that he's picking up penalties, running himself out of position, forcing out passes that create opportunities for the other team. What's the polar opposite of a Gordie Howe hat trick? That's what Voracek had going in Thursday night's debilitating, 4-3 overtime loss to the NHL's worst team, the Toronto Maple Leafs. He was part of blown coverage on the Leafs' first goal, leaving William Nylander alone with half a net to shoot at. Later, a flutter shot into traffic sprung Colin Greening for a breakaway and a 2-0, first-period lead.

A day after Flyers general manager Ron Hextall announced that defenseman Andrew MacDonald would not play Wednesday in a crucial game in Detroit, there could now be a change of heart. MacDonald, who was slammed into the boards during a 6-2 loss at Pittsburgh on Sunday, participated fully during a brief practice Tuesday at the Skate Zone. Even though MacDonald is still listed as day to day with an upper-body injury, he will make the trip to Detroit. "A decision will be made [Wednesday]

PITTSBURGH - In the not-too-distant past, the Flyers used to own the Pittsburgh Penguins. Times have changed. The streaking Penguins continued their domination of the Flyers this season with a 6-2 victory Sunday at the Consol Energy Center. Pittsburgh, which ended an eight-game losing streak in the series earlier this year, has won all three meetings against its bitter rivals this season, outscoring the Flyers, 14-6, and outshooting them, 119-79. "Go home, Flyers!" the fans chanted late in the mismatch.

APPARENTLY, swimming upstream is only exhausting if you're not making headway. In the Flyers' case, they're moving right along. In fact, the further upstream they travel from playoff irrelevance to the playoff fringes, the stronger they get. If they make it to their goal, they can turn round and use the current to push them through the playoffs. "If a team has been in this situation for 20-plus games, like us, where we've have the water right here," said defenseman Mark Streit, his hand at his neck, "it helps.

IT'S NOT a philosophy I buy into, but there is merit in the argument that a team that didn't win a championship has accomplished as much as a team that finished last. That's the argument many Sixers fans have made by saying a team that's in its third straight last-place season is better off than if it were stuck in a cycle of low playoff seeds and early postseason exits. I understand that frustration. Still, no one can convince me that what we've seen from the Sixers is as intriguing as what we've seen from the Flyers.

Do not be fooled by the appearance that the Flyers and Washington Capitals skated on the same ice in the same building Wednesday night. These were two teams in different places focused on the postseason in an entirely different way. The Capitals, with the Presidents' Trophy and home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs already secured, are more than willing to discuss the possibility that their first-round opponent could be the Flyers. Their coach, in fact, informed them before practice Tuesday that there was a 48 percent chance that the Flyers would be in Washington when the playoffs opened in a couple weeks.

The Flyers' road to the playoffs got a little smoother Wednesday night at the electric Wells Fargo Center. They shocked powerful Washington in a shootout, 2-1, and moved two points ahead of idle Detroit in the battle for the Eastern Conference's last wild-card spot. "It's a nice feeling, however there's still lots of work to be done, so we don't want to get too ahead of ourselves," goalie Steve Mason said after making 29 saves and denying the Capitals on two shots in the shootout, including one by shootout artist T.J. Oshie.

The Flyers, hoping a day off the ice Tuesday revives their tired legs, will continue their playoff push Wednesday by hosting the NHL's best team, the Stanley Cup favorite Washington Capitals. Will the Flyers see a Capitals team that displays little urgency because it has already clinched the league's best record and home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs? Or will the Caps bring their 'A' game because they are trying to send a message to a team that could be their first-round playoff opponent?

MIDWAY THROUGH the first period of the Flyers' 3-2 overtime victory Monday night, Winnipeg's 6-5, 260-pound defenseman, Dustin Byfuglien, pounded Brayden Schenn into the corner boards. Schenn crumpled to the ice, wobbled to his feet, and skated slowly to his bench. Two periods later, desperately trying to regain a lead lost, Jake Voracek drove hard to the net and collided with Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba, whose leg violently snapped back the head of his goaltender Ondrej Pavelec, who collapsed forward, holding his head.
