ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Jason Pominville and Charlie Coyle scored 57 seconds apart early in the third period, lifting the Minnesota Wild to a 2-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday night.

The Wild and Flyers had combined for only 28 shots when Pominville collected Mikko Koivu's pass in the crease and pushed it past a helpless Ray Emery 3:52 into the third period.

On the ensuing shift, Coyle tapped a rebound off Jared Spurgeon's slap shot into an empty corner at 4:49.

It was an impressive and unexpected flurry in a game that had played out as the statistics predicted. When the puck dropped, the Wild's 17 even-strength goals allowed in 21 games led the NHL; and the Flyers had allowed two or fewer goals in 10 of their past 14 games.

Josh Harding stopped 21 shots to earn his third shutout of the season, robbing Jakub Voracek on a third-period power play.

JETS 5, RANGERS 2

NEW YORK (AP) — Olli Jokinen broke a tie with 7:18 left in the third period and then netted an insurance goal moments later to lead Winnipeg to the win.

Jokinen, a former Rangers player who also assisted on Devin Setoguchi's tying goal in the second period, gathered the puck after a strange carom off the end boards. He then fired a shot past rookie Cam Talbot, who got a surprise second straight start over No. 1 goalie Henrik Lundqvist.

Jokinen then squeezed his sixth of the season between Talbot's pads with 1:54 left, making it 4-2.

John Albert also scored in his NHL debut and Blake Wheeler added an empty-net goal in the final minute for Winnipeg, which got 35 saves from Ondrej Pavelec.

Mats Zuccarello and Ryan Callahan scored for New York. Talbot made 25 saves.

CANADIENS 3, DEVILS 2

MONTREAL (AP) — Alex Galchenyuk scored midway through the third period to help Montreal get the victory.
