Recap: Philadelphia vs. Minnesota

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Jason Zucker scored with 45.4 seconds remaining in the third period to lift the Minnesota Wild to a 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center.

Marco Scandella and Nino Niederreiter both had a goal and one assist for the Wild, who posted a season-high fourth straight win. Darcy Kuemper stopped 37 Flyers shots in just the Wild's third win in 10 all-time trips to Philadelphia.

"I felt good, coming on the road into this building with a real hungry team I felt I was going to have to be good tonight," Kuemper said.

Claude Giroux tied the game on a Philadelphia power play with 3:30 remaining in regulation. Mark Streit also scored and Ray Emery made 26 saves for the Flyers, who have dropped four games in a row.

"Of course it's a tough way to lose," said Giroux. "We played the right way the whole game and gave ourselves a chance to win."

Scandella broke a 1-1 tie with a big blast from the left circle that beat Emery high on the glove side 1:42 into the third.

The Flyers got a late power play opportunity when defenseman Nate Prosser closed his hand on the puck with 3:56 left. It didn't them long to convert, as Giroux one-timed Brayden Schenn's backhand pass in from the left circle.

Zucker was uncovered at the right side of the net, however, and hammered home Ryan Suter's cross-ice pass through the crease for the game-winner.

The Wild were outshot 14-6 in the first period despite having two power plays to the Flyers' none.

Niederreiter opened the scoring on a power play, beating Emery on a one-timer from the left circle at 10:59 of the second period. It was Minnesota's first power-play goal on the road this season, ending an 0-for-32 drought.

Philadelphia pulled even when Streit scored from the slot off a Vincent Lecavalier pass with 5:29 remaining in the second.
