No Offense But the Flyers Have No Offense…

Minnesota Wild (16-12-5) stymie the high powered Philadelphia Flyers (17-10-5) and skate away with 4-1 victory.

The Flyers took the trip to St. Paul, Minnesota for the second of a three-game road trip.

The trip has been not what the doctor ordered as Team Philadelphia has apparently forgotten how to score goals.

Things started well on this night when James VanRiemsdyk converted a Morgan Frost at 1:34 and the Fly Guys jumped to a lead, 1-0.

The lead lasted just over five minutes before Zach Parise put one past Carter Hart to knot it up.

1:40 later, the ageless, Eric Staal connected for his tenth of the season to close the first with a Wild lead, 2-1.

Staal would pick up his 999th career point on the man advantage and the teams went to the final period with Philadelphia once again staring at a deficit, 3-1.

Carson Soucy applied the final nail in the Flyers coffin and closed out the 4-1 Wild victory.

Blue Lines: The Flyers have been getting a decent amount of shots but not on this occasion.

Minnesota outshot Philly, 28-18

As usual, the Orange and Black dominated from the face-off circle, 61-39%.

Philly heads into Winnipeg for a Sunday afternoon contest.
