Success in Philly has been rare
Preview: After playing well in back-to-back games at Toronto and Montreal — and beating the Canadiens to end a three-game losing streak — the Wild ends a four-game road trip in a place where it hasn't had much success. It is 3-9 in Philadelphia and has lost five consecutive games to the Flyers, who have won consecutive games only once this season. The Wild hopes to get its power play on track; it has scored only twice in its past 31 attempts.
Players to watch: Wild F Jason Zucker, who scored all five of his team's goals in its past two games, leads the Wild in goals (eight) and points (13). Flyers winger Claude Giroux has 20 points in 16 games, including a goal and two assists in Thursday's 3-1 victory over Chicago. His line, which also includes Jakub Voracek and Sean Couturier, has totaled 23 goals and 60 points this season.
Numbers: The Wild is tied for first in the NHL with four shorthanded goals. All have been scored in the past eight games. … Wild forward Marcus Foligno, who had eight hits Thursday, has a team-high 52 this season.
Injuries: Wild F Zach Parise (back surgery) and F Charlie Coyle (broken fibula) are out. Flyers D Andrew MacDonald (lower body), F Nolan Patrick (concussion) and G Anthony Stolarz (knee) are out.
