Preview: Flyers at Wild

“That’s what happens when you get on a line with Eric Staal – good things happen,” a gracious Zucker said following Monday’s practice. “We’ve been trying to play hard and use our speed and use our assets to our advantage. … For me they’ve happened to go in, but the other guys have been a huge part of it as well.” The 25-year-old Zucker leads the team in goals (nine) and points (14) on the heels of last season’s breakout campaign of 22 goals, 47 points and a league-best plus-34 rating. While the Wild have won two in a row in a bid to extract itself from the cellar of the Central Division, the Flyers have seen a fast start slowed with losses in six of their last nine (3-4-2). Brian Elliott has overcome a sluggish start to the season with a 1.00 goals-against average and .970 save percentage in his last two games.<BR><BR><STRONG>TV:</STRONG> 8 p.m. ET, NBCSN Philadelphia-Plus, FSN North (Minnesota)
