The Minnesota Wild fell to the Philadelphia Flyers 4-3 in overtime Thursday night at the Xcel Energy Center.

1. Overtime struggles continue

It came down to the final minute of overtime, but again the Wild found themselves on the short end, dropping to a disappointing 1-7 in 3-on-3 overtime.

2. Del Zotto does it

Michael Del Zotto's second goal of the night proved to be the game winner. It was his second goal of the night and his second and third goals of the season.

3. Parise keeps lighting the lamp

Zach Parise continues to be Minnesota's biggest offensive weapon this year. His 15th goal of the season tied the game for Minnesota and allowed the Wild to force overtime.
