Flyers Vs Wild: Disciplined Flyers Use Special Teams To Blast Wild, 5-1

The Philadelphia Flyers look to continue their home success Tuesday, as they host the struggling Minnesota Wild in a inter-conference contest at the Wells Fargo Center (7 p.m. on COMCAST). The Flyers (26-13-4, 56 points) are trying earn their season high-tying three game win streak at home, while the Wild (22-16-7, 51 points) are trying to avoid their longest road-losing streak since 2007.

On Saturday, Philadelphia ended its four-game road trip with a 4-2 loss at the Nashville Predators. However, the Flyers were able to collect four points during the trek. In the next 15 games, Philadelphia plays its next 11 at the Fargo Center.

Meanwhile, the Wild will be without their leading scorer Mikko Koivu will miss the contest with an upper-body injury that he appeared to have suffered in Minnesota's 3-2 loss Saturday at the St. Louis Blues. Koivu is expected to be sidelined for at least the next two weeks.
