WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — A night after getting pulled in a loss at Toronto, Ilya Bryzgalov was solid for the Flyers in a rare road win.

Bryzgalov made 24 saves and Brayden Schenn, Kimmo Timonen and Tye McGinn scored to give Philadelphia a 3-2 victory Tuesday night against Winnipeg and their second road win of the season.

"It's a very important two points for us," said Bryzgalov, who noted they have four more road games ahead in the next few days.

The veteran Russian goalie was benched in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Maple Leafs in Toronto after giving up four goals on 14 shots.

"All of us bounced back today and played very, very well," he said. "Obviously we played last night and we came late (to Winnipeg) and they were rested and . . . came out full of energy, with a supportive defense, and wanted to probably make the result early in the game.

"But we survived the storm."

Jakub Voracek had two assists for the Flyers.

Defenseman Braydon Coburn thought the Flyers came out flat.

"Any time you play back-to-back it's a tough situation but it's something that every team in the league has to deal with," Coburn said.

Andrew Ladd scored both goals for the Jets), the last in the final seconds. Winnipeg was coming off a 1-0 win in Ottawa on Saturday.

"It's a very important two points for us," said Bryzgalov, who noted they have four more road games ahead in the next few days.

The veteran Russian goalie had been pulled from Monday's 5-2 loss to the Maple Leafs in Toronto after giving up four goals on 14 shots.

Al Montoya recorded his first loss as a starter for the Jets. Ondrej Pavelec replaced Montoya in the third after what was reported as a lower-body injury for Montoya.

"Same old 40 minutes that we played well and we did things that we liked and then some inconsistencies in the other parts of our game that cost us," Pavelec said.
