The Philadelphia Flyers defeated the Minnesota Wild via shootout, 5-4 (1-0), at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday evening. James van Riemsdyk tallied the lone shootout goal for either team to give Philly its second shootout win of the season.

Scott Laughton (17th goal of the season) opened the scoring at 12:58 of the first period. Oskar Sundqvist (10th) answered with a deflection goal at 16:35.

At 7:26 of the second period, Joel Farabee (13th) restored a 2-1 lead on a deflection goal off a Cam York shot. Minnesota scored the next two goal to go from a 2-1 deficit to a 3-2 lead as Matt Boldy (24th) and Marcus Foligno (7th) tallied from distance. A Rasmus Ristolainen power play goal (3rd) at 19:37 sent the game to the third period deadlocked at 3-3.

In the third period, Minnesota took a short-lived 4-3 lead on a Boldy rebound goal (second of the game, 25th of the season) at 13:32. Philly got it right back at 14:16 on a tally by Tyson Foerster (2nd).

Carter Hart stopped 20 of 24 shots during the hockey game and went 3-for-3 in the shootout. Marc-Andre Fleury denied 30 of 34 shots in regulation and OT before going 2-for-3 in the shootout.

The Flyers went 1-for-1 on the power play. The Wild were 0-for-3.

Nicolas Deslauriers was a late scratch after warmups due to an upper-body injury. Kieffer Bellows stepped into the starting lineup in his place.
