The Philadelphia Flyers are looking for any possible edge in Tuesday night’s game against the Detroit Red Wings. Flyers President Paul Holmgren suggests kidnapping one of the opposing team’s players and locking him up somewhere.

Holmgren was joking when he made the comment at a press conference for USA Hockey. Larkin, Detroit’s 19-year-old rookie sensation, leads the Red Wings in goals (20) and has 20 assists.
The Flyers can get within a point of Detroit for the Eastern Conference’s final wild-card spot by handling business at home against the Red Wings.
