The Philadelphia Flyers scored three times on their first 11 shots and rode that to a 4-3 victory Sunday.
The Wings, who have lost six straight in Philadelphia dating back to 1997, had their point streak snapped at 12. They hadn’t lost a game in regulation since March 9. Their magic number to clinch a playoff spot remains at two — any combination of two points won by the Wings or lost by Calgary and they are in.
