Video: Wild strike quick to run over Flyers

Dec 2, 2013, 11:01 PM EST

It didn’t take long for the Philadelphia Flyers to suddenly find themselves in a hole against the Minnesota Wild on Monday.

The Wild scored twice in the span of 57 seconds in the early stages of the third period, on goals by Jason Pominville and Charlie Coyle, to record a 2-0 win over the Flyers.

And just like that, the Flyers were down. Finding any kind of scoring attack after falling behind proved difficult – too difficult in this case.

The Flyers had 11 shots in the third period – one more than they had in the first two periods – but couldn’t beat Wild goalie Josh Harding, who made 21 saves for his third shutout of the season.

The Wild only managed six shots in the final 20 minutes, but managed to beat Ray Emery twice.

    We were raised
    With the stick
    And a pair of blades
    On the ice we cut our teeth
    We took our knocks
    In the penalty box
    Our mother was the referee

    This sport was here
    Before we came
    It will be here when we’re gone
    The game’s in our blood
    And our blood’s in the game
    Lay us down under
    A frozen pond

    We will fight to the end
    We will stand and defend
    Our flag flying high and free
    We were born the child
    Of the strong and Wild
    In the State, the State of Hockey

    A big blue line runs around our state
    A line that can’t be crossed
    The day they try to take this game
    Is the day the gloves come off

    We will fight to the end
    We will stand and defend
    Our flag flying high and free
    We were born the child
    Of the strong and Wild
    In the State, the State of Hockey.

      Seriously, that could be the dumbest/lamest song in the history of sports.

        Scott Stapp would beg to differ.

        We were born the child

    I am very happy for the Wild win, but the Flyers are bottom feeders so we should have won!

    minnesota rocks musically…greatest export, bob dylan:

    a worried man with a worried mind
    no one in front of me and nothing behind

    there’s a woman on my lap and she’s drinking champagne
    got white skin, got assassin’s eyes

    i’m looking up into the sapphire-tinted skies
    i’m well dressed, waiting on the last train

    standing on the gallows with my head in a noose
    any minute now I’m expecting all hell to break loose

    people are crazy and times are strange
    i’m locked in tight, I’m out of range

    i used to care, but things have changed…

    where are all the Flyer fans? Talking about how there team has turned the corner?

    • ruthlessandtoothless - Dec 3, 2013 at 11:34 AM

      Their*

      And I’d say losing off of 57 seconds of poor play and to one of the hottest goalies in the league right now really isn’t the best way to try to discredit everything the flyers have done in the last month. Try again.

        No, but two shut outs in a row is.

      They did turn the corner. They’ll make the playoffs and you’ll still be a loser living in mommy’s basement.
