Wild Lose on the Road to Flyers
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Brayden Schenn scored the tiebreaking goal at 8:43 of the third period, lifting the Philadelphia Flyers to a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night.
Brandon Manning and Michael Del Zotto also scored to help the Flyers snap a three-game skid. Michael Neuvirth started and stopped six of seven shots before leaving after the first period due to an apparent injury. Steve Mason replaced him and finished with 19 saves, including a left pad save on Eric Staal in the closing seconds.
Nino Niederreiter and Mikael Granlund scored for the Wild, who lost for the third time in four games. Devan Dubnyk had 33 saves.
On the go-ahead score, Wayne Simmonds put a between-the-legs pass from behind the net onto Schenn's stick and Schenn waited for Dubnyk to go down before firing the puck over him for his third of the season — all on the power play.
