ST. PAUL, Minn. - After stumbling briefly, Wayne Simmonds and the Philadelphia Flyers found the right combination to extend their success on the road.Simmonds scored the go-ahead goal late in the second period, lifting Philadelphia to a 5-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild for their third straight victory.Vincent Lecavalier, Claude Giroux, Sean Couturier and Michael Raffl also scored for the Flyers, who have won the first three games of an eight-game road trip that spans 15 days.Its always nice to get the first six points on a road trip and well go home and enjoy our families and be ready when we come back, Simmonds said.Marco Scandella and Charlie Coyle scored for Minnesota, losers of four in a row.The Wild went through rough stretches last season as well, but pulled it together to make the playoffs and take Chicago to six games in the second round. But coach Mike Yeo doesnt want to hear about last year.If we keep sitting around waiting for that to reappear without actually doing the things that make that happen, then well continue to be disappointed, he said.Simmonds broke a 2-all tie with his team-leading 15th goal of the season at 15:22 of the second period, beating goalie Darcy Kuemper high after teammate Brayden Schenn battled along the boards to secure the puck.The Flyers are 6-1-3 in their last 10 games.Zach Parise appeared to tie it early in the third, but the goal was overturned following a replay review.Officials ruled that the left post was raised off the ice and the puck slid underneath the net.For a second it was kind of nerve-wracking, but I realized the net was up, and you could see it up, goalie Ray Emery said.Three minutes later, Lecavalier tipped in Andrew MacDonalds slap shot for his third goal in two games to make it 4-2.Raffl added an empty-netter late in the third and left the Wild searching for answers.Were supposed to be a band of brothers that goes out, night in and night out, and lays it on the line for each other, defenceman Matt Cooke said. We found that last year. Just because we had it last year doesnt mean that its here this year. We have to go out and earn the trust in each other.Not falling behind early and chasing the rest of the game is one way to help redevelop that trust. Couturier and Giroux scored before the Wild had a shot in the first period.Minnesota finally registered its first shot at 9:55 of the opening period, then got on the board when Scandella fired a slap shot past Emery 8 seconds later for his third goal in four games.Minnesota tied it 3:43 into the second when Jason Pominvilles misfire deflected off Coyle and went in on the power play. It was Coyles first goal in 26 games.We kind of got off our game a little bit after we got the two-goal lead and started cursing a little bit, Simmonds said.Thanks to another good night from Lacavalier, it didnt take long for the Flyers to pull it together and start rolling again.We played the way we should play on the road, Lecavalier said. We played hard and physical and we helped out the goalies and we helped each other out.Emery stopped 22 shots for his third straight win after dropping four in a row.NOTES: Flyers C Zac Rinaldo (upper body) missed his second straight game. ...

Wholesale Paul George Shoes . -- Albert Pujols is thrilled to have a reason to forget about his first two disappointing seasons with the Los Angeles Angels.LAKE FOREST, Ill. - Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte sees the commitment to the handoff and cant help but come away impressed.The only thing that would be better for him would be if he was talking about his own team instead of this weeks opponent. The Bears will see a squad committed to the run when they host DeMarco Murray and the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday night.Its impressive to see, said Forte, who made it clear Monday he wants more carries.Last week, he had just five for six yards, and the Bears (5-7) ran only eight times in a loss at Detroit that all but guaranteed they will miss the playoffs for the seventh time in eight years.On Thursday night, theyll see a team that committed to the run by upgrading its offensive line in recent years and putting the ball in Murrays hands. He has played in all 12 games after missing time in each of his first three seasons, and the results so far are jaw-dropping. He leads the NFL in yards rushing (1,427) and attempts (288) and is a huge reason why the Cowboys are challenging the Philadelphia Eagles for the NFC East championship.The Bears have been struggling all season in just about every phase, something they did not envision.A team that ranked second in the NFL in scoring last season has taken a big step back in Year 2 under coach Marc Trestman, with the Bears failing to produce more than 28 points in a game.Only three times this season has Forte attempted more than 19 rushes. In four games, he has finished with 13 or fewer. And the five carries against the Lions matched a career low he set against Arizona in 2009 and Kansas City in 2011.Forte said the Bears cant afford a repeat this week.Its of the utmost importance, especially if were playing outside, with the weather and stuff, Forte said. You cant just sit back there and throw 50 passes a game and expect to win. Their front four were pinning their ears back..dddddddddddd. They didnt have anything to do but pass rush. Theyre not respecting the run and then if you play-fake, theyre not going to take the play-fake because you havent been running the ball.The Bears were facing the leagues stingiest run defence last week. Even so, Forte said thats no reason to completely abandon the run, and they need to stick with it to open up the passing game.He and offensive co-ordinator Aaron Kromer said the game plan last week called for Chicago to go with some quick screens early on and then move to the run. But it didnt quite unfold the way the Bears envisioned.Kromer would not say how many run plays the Bears called, only that there were more than what showed on tape.It didnt help that the Bears again fell into an early hole and trailed at halftime for the eighth time this season. They trailed the Detroit 24-14, and for the season, theyve been outscored a whopping 223-117 over the first two quarters.Even so, Kromer said the Bears still could have run the ball down 10 at halftime.And I think in the future, that will happen, he added.Meanwhile, Trestman reiterated that the Bears need more balance. But the struggle to find it continues.As I look back, theres a lot of different things that go into that, he said. The only thing I could say is we didnt run it enough. We would have liked to run it more. It didnt happen that way, and weve got to move forward to Dallas. We could have that discussion forever. We need to run the ball more than we did.NOTES: DT Jeremiah Ratliff practiced on a limited basis after missing the Lions game because of a knee injury, while S Chris Conte sat out after injuring his eye against Detroit. TE Martellus Bennett (foot), WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and CB Tim Jennings (groin) were also among the limited participants.___Online:AP NFL website: and ' ' '
