For just the second time this season, the Flyers have a two-game winning streak. With AP Photos.Wayne Simmonds had a goal and an assist and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-2 for their second straight victory after losing 10 in a row.

Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins got the goals for the Oilers (11-15-2). Goalie Brian Elliott made 23 saves for the Flyers (10-11-7). Elliott denied superstar Connor McDavid from point-blank range with 2:05 to go.

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

"It definitely feels good".

The last time the Flyers won back-to-back road games came almost a full calendar year ago last season in NY. We made some adjustments throughout our neutral zone and really clogging teams up.

McDavid had an assist on a shorthanded goal, but was held in check and managed just one shot.

Philadelphia responded on its fourth power-play of the game, scoring on its 22nd shot on Brossoit.

"We limited his chances throughout the game", Weal said.

"We went through a tough stretch and got a win the other night in Calgary and this one tonight was big to keep us going on the right track", Elliott said. Edmonton goalie Laurent Brossoit, who gave up five goals in his most recent start prior to Wednesday, stopped 29 shots.

At 4:06, Raffl was sent off on a breakaway thanks to a great defense-breaking pass from Jakub Voracek, and he put the puck over Brossoit's glove to make it 3-1.

Wayne Simmonds had a goal and an assist, and Jordan Weal, Dale Weise and Michael Raffl also scored for Philadelphia, which was on an 0-5-5 run before Monday.

Weise said it is nice to be back in the win column.

He did, firing a shot between the legs of defenseman Eric Gryba.

"Our power play was on the ice for four minutes tonight and it got one puck to the goalie's pads", McLellan said. Weal was on the doorstep to tip home a pass from Sean Couturier at 8:53 of the middle period. "It's not been for a lack of hard work and creating chances".

Of note, he came up with a point blank save on Oilers defenseman Darnell Nurse with 5:30 left in the second period. The Flyers' first power-play unit was on the ice too long and appeared winded.

But the Flyers quickly answered. "These aren't our fans out here, we don't have to entertain them", he said.

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".

The Flyers had 28 shot attempts (13 on goal) in the first, while the Oilers had just 12 (seven on goal).

It was bad. In a game between two organizations trying to right their sinking ships, the Oilers spent the evening taking on more water.

The Flyers then scored on shot No. 24. 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.

"It was good. We've been playing some good hockey but we weren't seeing the results". "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 it now".
