Simmonds has goal and assist, Flyers beat Oilers

Preview: Flyers at Oilers

The Philadelphia Flyers came to Alberta knowing they needed to do whatever was necessary to win. Goalie Brian Elliott made 23 saves for the Flyers (10-11-7). The Oilers finally cranked it up offensively with 10 minutes left, leading to a Ryan Nugent-Hopkins goal with 6:40 left.

Philadelphia took a 2-1 lead on a soft goal with five minutes left in the second period as Weise sent a shot through both the defender's and Brossoit's legs. It was the Oilers' fourth shorthanded goal in the last 11 games. "These aren't our fans out here, we don't have to entertain them", he said.

"You throw on top of that I didn't think we had any type of passing execution, a lot of pucks bouncing in our feet, so we weren't clean at all".

Philadelphia outshot the Oilers 13-7 in the scoreless opening period.

The Oilers struck shorthanded 3:21 into the second. With Edmonton short-handed, Connor McDavid and Draisaitl stormed up the ice on a two-on-one break.

Pouliot, an Estevan, Saskatchewan, native who languished mainly in the minors after the Penguins drafted him eighth overall in 2012, is also producing points - a rare feat for most Canucks defensemen in recent seasons - and preventing goals.

"I thought our penalty kill did a good job, and the one they scored, I've got to get in that stick lane and take that pass away", Benning said.

"That felt good, it's been a long time coming", Weal said.

"Pretty good play by Giroux there".

The Flyers then scored on shot No. 24. "There were a lot of improvements, a couple of things that I wanted to make sure I did tonight, and did. Maybe that second one is eliminated", Brossoit said.

Weise said it is nice to be back in the win column. "Getting contributions from everyone, it's going to be huge if we want to keep stringing some wins together". They will be playing the second of back-to-back road games - as well as their third road game in four nights. Raffl made it 3-1 four minutes into the third period.

Pouliot scored the winning goal for the second straight contest as the Canucks extended their win streak to three games.

Simmonds got an empty-netter with 39 seconds left to seal the game.

The Flyers, who are mired well below the playoff bar in the Eastern Conference, have won two successive games only twice this season. The Flyers beat the Oilers 2-1 in Philadelphia in October. The Flyers recently placed goalie Michal Neuvirth and defenseman Brandon Manning on injured reserve. Also scratched was LW Anton Slepyshev.
