Luke Kunin scored twice, while Zach Parise and Jared Spurgeon added goals for the Wild, who fell to 1-4-2 since the All-Star break.

Numbers: Wild forward Joel Eriksson Ek has scored two goals on 10 shots in the past three games. Devan Dubnyk stopped 21 of 26 shots for Minnesota.

"As a coach, there's different wins or games that you have during the course of the season that are real gut checks and how your team responds".

Minnesota had taken a 4-3 lead early in the third period on a goal by Spurgeon that was awarded after a video review. Teammate Sean Couturier's goal tied the score 3-3 at 13:57 of the second.

"It's happened all year".

Malkin received a match penalty, which put Philly on the power play for the final five minutes of the game. "I find it mind-boggling".

Bjugstad made it 2-0 7:04 into the second with a wrist shot from a sharp angle, an uncharacteristically soft goal for Hart. On replay, it showed that the puck had actually clipped Stolarz's mask, went under the bar and back out, resulting in a goal to make it 4-3. Catching the Wild in a line change, Jake Voracek dropped a pass to Claude Giroux, who fired a slap shot high over Dubnyk to even things up again, 4-4.

Stolarz kept the Wild in check with a sprawling save of a point-blank shot by Jordan Greenway in the second period. The Penguins scored just over halfway through the first and just survived wave after wave of Flyers offense, until Philadelphia lost steam late in the game.

"We play like that, we won't have to worry about anything", interim coach Scott Gordon said.

Pittsburgh's win was a big one, snapping a four-game losing streak that had us here at PHT wondering if the Penguins were in danger missing the playoffs.

Five Flyers finished with two points - van Riemsdyk with the two goals, Couturier and Giroux with a goal and an assist and Gostisbehere and Sanheim with two assists each.

NOTES: The Wild honored recently retired Twins star Joe Mauer in a pregame ceremony. The Flyers loaned goalie Brian Elliot to Lehigh Valley (AHL) for a conditioning stint on Tuesday. He hasn't played for the Flyers since November 15 and was placed on injured reserve with a lower-body injury.
