--D Nicklas Lidstrom played in his 1,550th game, moving past Alex Delvecchio into second place on the Wings' all-time list. He trails Gordie Howe (1,687). Lidstrom has appeared in more games than any player in NHL history who has played for only one club.
--RW Johan Franzen has a knack for scoring big goals. He snapped a 3-3 tie 52 seconds into the third period with his team-leading 22nd goal on Sunday. It was his league-leading 10th game-winning goal. Franzen had one of his better games, playing physical and skating hard to the net.
--C Henrik Zetterberg has struggled offensively most of the season, but got some much-needed relief with a three-point game (goal, two assists). His goal tied the game at 3-3 at 18:21 of the third, just 2:02 after the Flyers had taken the lead. Zetterberg then set up Johan Franzen's winning goal with a nice pass to Nicklas Lidstrom, who redirected the puck to Franzen.
--RW Dan Cleary is out until mid-February with a sore knee.
--G Jimmy Howard is out until mid-February with a broken finger.
--RW Patrick Eaves (fractured jaw on Nov. 26) is out indefinitely.
