Simmonds' late goal lifts Flyers over struggling Oilers, 2-1

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Wayne Simmonds expects to lose some teeth in the next few days. On Saturday, he suited up and ensured the Philadelphia Flyers wouldn't lose a game.

Wearing a guard to protect his sore mouth after taking a stick to the face two days earlier, Simmonds scored on a feed from Valtteri Filppula with 2:15 left to break a tie and send the Flyers to a 2-1 victory over the slumping Edmonton Oilers.

"I don't know how many people would want to go through that and then play a hockey game," Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said.
