EDMONTON, Alberta -- Alberta was good to the Philadelphia Flyers.
After breaking a 10-game losing skid with a win over the Flames in Calgary on Monday, the Flyers continued their turnaround with a 4-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday.
Wayne Simmonds had a goal and an assist, and Jordan Weal, Dale Weise and Michael Raffl also scored for Philadelphia, which snapped a 10-game losing streak (0-5-5) on Monday. Goalie Brian Elliott made 24 saves for the Flyers (10-11-7).
Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins got the goals for the Oilers (11-15-2). Edmonton goalie Laurent Brossoit, who gave up five goals -- including four in the third period -- in his most recent start, stopped 29 shots.
The Oilers opened the scoring at 3:41 of the second period. With Edmonton short-handed, Connor McDavid and Draisaitl stormed up the ice on a two-on-one break. McDavid slipped a backhand pass to Draisaitl, and the German got the puck past Elliott before the goalie could get his pad across to stop the shot.
Philadelphia responded on its fourth power-play of the game, scoring on its 22nd shot on Brossoit. Jordan Weal was on the doorstep to tip home a pass from Sean Couturier at 8:53 of the middle period.
The Flyers then scored on shot No. 24. Weise's 25-footer trickled through Brossoit's legs at 14:45 of the second.
Just 10 seconds into the third period, the Oilers stormed into the Flyers' zone, and defenseman Darnell Nurse clanged a shot off the crossbar.
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.
Nugent-Hopkins made it close with 6:40 left on the clock, banging home a rebound from a Patrick Maroon shot. McDavid had a great chance to tie the game with two minutes left, but Elliott made a save after the Oilers star dashed around two Flyers.
Simmonds got an empty-netter to seal the game.
