PHILADELPHIA - Wayne Simmonds had two goals and an assist, leading the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-1 win over the Minnesota Wild on Monday night.

Luke Schenn and Claude Giroux also scored for the Flyers, whose record rose above .500 for just the second time this season (17-16-4).

Mikael Grandlund tallied for the Wild, who fell to 2-7-0 all-time at the Wells Fargo Center.

The Flyers' home win streak extended to nine games with the victory. The Wild are now 1-7-1 in their last nine road games.

Both teams are off until Friday.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
