ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Wayne Simmonds scored the go-ahead goal late in the second period, lifting the Philadelphia Flyers to a 5-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night for their third straight win.

Vincent Lecavalier, Claude Giroux, Sean Couturier and Michael Raffl also scored for the Flyers, who have won the first three games of an eight-game road trip that spans 15 days.

Marco Scandella and Charlie Coyle scored for Minnesota, losers of four in a row.

Simmonds broke a 2-all tie with his team-leading 15th goal of the season at 15:22 of the second period, beating goalie Darcy Kuemper high after teammate Brayden Schenn battled along the boards to secure the puck.
