Recap: Minnesota vs. Philadelphia

St. Paul, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - Josh Harding made 21 saves to record his third shutout of the season and backstop the Minnesota Wild to a 2-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers at Xcel Energy Center.

Jason Pominville and Charlie Coyle scored 57 seconds apart in the third period for the Wild, who had closed out November on an 0-3-1 slide.

Ray Emery finished with 19 saves for Philadelphia, which has split its first two stops on a six-game road trip.

"Their game plan is to limit chances against. It's kind of like a New Jersey- type game, where you just got to stay patient with them and not give them anything," Emery said.

Pominville ended the scoreless stalemate 3:52 into the final frame. He was the beneficiary of hard work by Mikko Koivu, collecting the captain's behind-the- net pass and beating Emery from the doorstep.

Coyle scored from almost the exact same spot. Emery kicked out Jared Spurgeon's slap shot right to Coyle and he buried the puck into an open net.

The Flyers were still unable to solve Harding despite two power plays and Emery on the bench for an extra skater for the final three-plus minutes.

"They pressured us hard in the third and (Harding) was the difference," Pominville said.
