Around the NHL: Simmonds leads Flyers as they double up Oilers

The Flyers rebounded from allowing a shorthanded goal early in the second period to score three goals of their own and ended up with a 4-2 win in Edmonton on Wednesday night.

Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored for the Oilers (11-15-2), who have lost two of their last three.

Simmonds put the game away with an empty-netter with 39 seconds left on the clock.

"It definitely feels good". "I really like the way we've played the last two games". We made some adjustments throughout our neutral zone and really clogging teams up.

"It's been a long time coming", Weal, who scored his first goal in his last 13 games, said. Defensemen Ivan Provorov (eight hits), who played 28:08, and Andrew MacDonald (four blocked shots in 25:14) did a great job containing McDavid and the forwards did not give him a lot of time and space.

Snow and Ice Expected As Weather Warnings Issued
IRISH weather chiefs have issued a new snow-ice warning for the entire country ahead of Storm Caroline blowing in. This means icy roads, particularly in the north and west of the country.

"We can't seem to start two good games in a row", Draisaitl said. "He's going to get a couple here and there, but if you can minimize them and keep the puck in their end as much as we did, you're going to have a good chance to win". A turnover by defenseman Kris Russell put the play in motion, leading to Raffl's second goal in as many games. His goal four minutes into the third period gave the Flyers breathing room with a two-goal lead.

Notes: Oilers defenceman Adam Larsson remained out with an injury for the Oilers.

Through two periods, the Flyers had the advantage in shots, 27-16. The Flyers went on their fourth power play five minutes later and finally made the Oilers play, with Jordan Weal tapping in a cross-crease pass. Dale Weise snuck one through Brossoit's five-hole with 5:15 left in the period to make it 2-1 Philadelphia. "We're playing that good road-style hockey when you have nothing, you've got to get it in deep and live to fight another day, and I think our guys are really buying into that right now".

He did, firing a shot between the legs of defenseman Eric Gryba. Weal tied it five minutes later on a power play. 2, Philadelphia, Weal 3 (Giroux, Couturier), 8:53 (pp). "It's not been for a lack of hard work and creating chances". It's nice when you can get out with special players like that. With Edmonton short-handed, Connor McDavid and Draisaitl stormed up the ice on a two-on-one break.

But the Flyers quickly answered. "These aren't our fans out here, we don't have to entertain them", he said. This time, they didn't let it go to waste on the NHL's worst penalty kill entering Wednesday.

Alison explained: 'Carla is at a stage where she is starting to think about life and family, her secret is making her take stock. Alison left the soap 18 months ago and meant to stay away for two years but was begged to return early by producer Kate Oates.

It opened up a bit in the second, but not in a good way for Edmonton. "You can't turn the puck over or they'll make you pay".

Philadelphia outshot the Oilers 13-7 in the scoreless opening period. Shots were 13-7 Flyers after the first. The Oilers embark on a three-game trip out east, beginning on Saturday in Montreal.

At the end of the first 40 minutes, the Flyers had a 48-29 advantage in shot attempts. Game time is set for 10 p.m. It equaled their second-highest scoring output of the season. They certainly weren't entertaining, but they were effective, winning two in row.

Maple Leafs 2, Flames 1: William Nylander scored the decisive goal in the fourth round of the shootout for host Toronto, which got 47 saves in regulation and overtime from Frederik Andersen.

It's a quick turnaround for the Flyers, who get right back at it on Thursday night against the Vancouver Canucks.
