Simmonds' goal gives Flyers win over Oilers

(TSX / STATS) -- PHILADELPHIA -- Wayne Simmonds netted his team-high sixth goal of the season with 2:15 remaining in regulation to give the Philadelphia Flyers a 2-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center.

Center Claude Giroux also scored for the Flyers (5-3-0) and goaltender Brian Elliott stopped 23 of 24 shots to pick up his fourth win of the season (4-1-0). The win was the Flyers' third in four games.

Patrick Maroon scored the only goal for the Oilers (2-5-0), who have dropped five of their last six games after starting the season with a win over Calgary. Oilers captain Connor McDavid was held without a point for just the second time in seven games.
