ST. PAUL, Minn., Feb. 7 (UPI) -- Anton Khudobin, in his first NHL start Saturday, made 38 saves, leading the Minnesota Wild to a 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.
The only goal he yielded in 39 shots was Daniel Carcillo's eighth this season at 15:53 of the first period.
Minnesota's Cal Clutterbuck scored his 11th (unassisted) at 15:37 of the first, while Owen Nolan's 14th at 11:48 of the third was the game-winner for the Wild, who rose to 8-0-1 in their last nine home contests.
They have not lost at home in regulation since a 5-3 setback Jan. 2 against the New Jersey Devils.
Michael Leighton, playing in place of the injured Ray Emery (hip), yielded two goals on 30 shots for the Flyers, who ended a three-game road trip with their second straight loss.
