ST. PAUL Bo Horvat Jersey , Minn. (AP) — a two-hour flight and a miserable first period, the Philadelphia Flyers did what they’ve been doing for the last five weeks. They won.James van Riemsdyk scored two goals, including the game-winner late in the third period, as the Flyers beat the Minnesota Wild 5-4 on Tuesday night.Sean Couturier and Claude Giroux each had a goal and an assist and Ivan Provorov also scored for the Flyers, who are 11-2-1 since Jan. 9. One of those losses was on Monday night, a frustrating 4-1 defeat against the Penguins in which the Flyers logged 51 shots on goal.After falling behind 3-1 in the first period, the Flyers regrouped and looked like a different team the last two periods.“A couple of guys were vocal in the locker room in between,” said goalie Anthony Stolarz, who made 35 saves. “This isn’t an easy back-to-back, a two-hour flight last night and having to play. It was tough, but we battled back.”Luke Kunin scored twice, while Zach Parise and Jared Spurgeon added goals for the Wild Youth Brandon Sutter Jersey , who fell to 1-4-2 since the All-Star break.“Maybe we were playing content and happy with the 3-1 lead and stopped working,” Kunin said. “You can’t do that with any team in this league. When you stop working and not playing that full 60, it’s going to cost you.”Van Riemsdyk broke a 4-4 tie on a power play with 4:29 remaining, banking home a rebound off Devan Dubnyk in a scramble near the net. It was the 11th power-play goal allowed by Minnesota in its last 10 games, and it came with Nick Seeler in the penalty box for tripping a Flyer along the side boards.“It’s happened all year. I don’t know if you can count on both hands how many times in the third period it’s been tied and we take a penalty and they score in the last seven minutes, eight minutes,” Minnesota coach Bruce Boudreau said. “I find it mind-boggling.”Minnesota had taken a 4-3 lead early in the third period on a goal by Spurgeon that was awarded after a video review. His shot from a sharp angle appeared to hit off the crossbar, but at the next stoppage the play was reviewed. Video showed the puck hitting the underside of the crossbar and dropping into the net before spinning back out.Philadelphia tied it at 6:30 when the Wild got caught in a line change, leaving Giroux and Jakub Voracek alone on a two-man rush. Voracek left a drop pass for Giroux, who beat Dubnyk with a slap shot from the top of the right circle.“They came off when they shouldn’t have come off,” Boudreau said, explaining the bad line change. “It wasn’t a very good play.”The Flyers struck first, with Provorov scoring less than three minutes into the game on a deflected slap shot.But the Wild recovered quickly Brendan Leipsic Jersey Kids , thanks in part to two quick Flyers penalties that gave Minnesota a two-man advantage for 1:52.Parise tied it during the 5-on-3. He took a pass from Mikael Granlund at the left of the net and banked it off Stolarz for his team-leading 23rd goal of the season.Kunin then scored two quick goals to put Minnesota on top 3-1.Stolarz kept the Wild in check with a sprawling save of a point-blank shot by Jordan Greenway in the second period. The Flyers then tied the game shortly after with two consecutive goals from van Riemsdyk and Couturier.“To find a way to dig ourselves out of a hole, as a coach, that’s a real proud moment to be a part of,” Flyers interim coach Scott Gordon said. “That’s what I told the players — nobody quit, and we just stayed with it. They deserved it.”After weathering an 0-6-2 stretch in late December and early January — which came after coach Dave Hakstol had already been fired — the Flyers are now just six points out of the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference.“We’ve been through a lot this year and when things are not going as well as we like, we find a way to get something positive and take one shift at a time and try to bounce back,” Couturier said. “Tonight that’s kind of the game we played.”NOTES: The Wild honored recently retired Twins star Joe Mauer in a pregame ceremony. The players wore custom Twins-themed jerseys during their pregame skate and Mauer dropped the puck in a ceremonial faceoff. … The Flyers loaned goalie Brian Elliot to Lehigh Valley (AHL) for a conditioning stint on Tuesday. He hasn’t played for Philadelphia since Nov. 15 and was placed on injured reserve with a lower-body injury.UP NEXTFlyers: Host Detroit on Saturday afternoon.Wild: Host New Jersey on Friday. LAS VEGAS (AP) In the heat of a tight playoff race, the Los Angeles Kings turned to a little-known goaltender with one NHL start under his belt.Boy, did Jack Campbell ever come through.Campbell made 41 saves, Anze Kopitar scored his 27th goal and Los Angeles defeated the Vegas Golden Knights 4-1 on Tuesday night.”It’s always great to win, and it definitely feels great to do it with this group. It just means a lot that it was a big two points,” Campbell said. ”It was a little bit more than another game. I wanted to prove to everybody, but most importantly my teammates , that they can count on me. This was probably the biggest game I’ve played in.”It was the Kings’ second victory over Vegas in two nights. The expansion Golden Knights dropped into a tie with Nashville for the top spot in the Western Conference.The 26-year-old Campbell was making his first NHL start since the 2013-14 season, when he played for the Dallas Stars. He made one appearance for Los Angeles last season and got the nod Tuesday over starter Jonathan Quick, who beat Vegas on Monday.”I remember the day when he came here,” Kings coach John Stevens said. ”His game was not in very good shape. He had been in the East Coast League, and all he wanted to do was work and get better. Terrific year in the minors and became a leader down there. Coming into this game is a tough spot. It’s as tough a spot as there is. I thought Jack was really solid tonight and I couldn’t be any happier for the kid.”Kyle Clifford, Tyler Toffoli and Jeff Carter also scored for the Kings, who rank second in the league with 20 road wins. Tampa Bay has 22.Maxime Lagace stopped 26 shots for the Golden Knights in his first start since Dec. 9, when he won at Dallas. William Karlsson scored the Vegas goal.Vegas is 0-2 since Monday’s trade deadline, when the Golden Knights added slick-skating forward Tomas Tatar and big-bodied Ryan Reaves to the lineup. Reaves played in both games against Los Angeles, while Tatar made his debut Tuesday.Reaves made his presence felt for a team with the third-fewest penalty minutes in the league. He delivered several big hits, including two in the third period that landed him in the penalty box. He took issue with those calls.”Can’t make a call on a reaction on a bench or a big noise, that’s not how this league works,” said the 6-foot-1 , 225-pound winger, who arrived from Pittsburgh in a three-team trade. ”I thought those were panic calls. (Drew) Doughty throws his head back like he got shot – it’s his shoulder pad that hits his chin. Two bad calls in a critical time of the game. It’s hockey. I play hard. It’s what’s kept me in this league. I’m not going to apologize for any one of those penalties. They did cost us the game, but that’s my style of play. And that’s going to continue against every team we play.”In what has become a familiar sequence for the Golden Knights’ top line, Reilly Smith fed Jonathan Marchessault, who fed Karlsson, who gave Vegas a 1-0 lead 5:27 into the game.Karlsson got his 34th goal of the season, while Marchessault and Smith picked up their 41st and 37th assists, respectively.But shortly thereafter, Vegas center Ryan Carpenter committed a costly turnover with a terrible pass in the offensive zone, where Clifford took advantage and beat Lagace to tie it. Midway through the second period, Toffoli skated past Smith and took the puck with him, then beat Lagace to give the Kings a 2-1 advantage.”The mistakes were self-inflicted,” Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant said. ”We made some bad mistakes in the neutral zone and turned the puck over and they capitalized. We had some chances. We created some chances. We just didn’t play hard enough. We didn’t compete hard enough in the blue paint.”Kopitar extended the margin to 3-1 when he skated by Vegas defenseman Luca Sbisa and drew Lagace out of the net before swiftly moving to the side and putting the puck in.Carter finished the scoring on a power-play goal with less than two minutes remaining.”We talked as a team before the game and said if we want to get in the playoffs ,” Stevens said, ”it’s about playing better this time of year, getting better every night, and it was good to see we did that.”NOTES: Campbell and Lagace were teammates in the minors with the Texas Stars and Idaho Steelheads. … After 11 consecutive starts, No. 1 goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was given the night off for Vegas after losing in Los Angeles on Monday. … The crowd of 18,328 was the second-largest for a Golden Knights home game. … Kopitar has points in each of the last three games. … Vegas, which had scored on the power play in 14 of its last 17 games, was 0 for 4 with the man advantage. … The Golden Knights dropped to 14-7 following a loss.UP NEXTKings: Host the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday.Golden Knights: Host the Ottawa Senators on Friday.—
