ST. PAUL, Minn., Nov. 24 (UPI) -- Sergei Bobrovsky had to make just 15 saves Wednesday while receiving plenty of offensive support in Philadelphia's 6-1 decision over Minnesota.

Philadelphia won for the sixth time in eight games, besting Niklas Backstrom a season-high six times on 28 shots.

Danny Briere, Andreas Nodl and Ville Leino all had a goal and an assist for the Flyers.

The only goal against Bobrovsky came from Patrick O'Sullivan early in the third period, briefly trimming the Wild's deficit to 2-1.

Philadelphia scored three times in the third to put the game away.

The Flyers recorded their most one-sided win over Minnesota since the Wild entered the NHL in 2000.
