Wayne Simmonds’ Flyers team may be an ice-cold 0-2 to start the 2014-15 NHL season, but the Philadelphia right winger had his game catch fire Thursday as he scored twice in less than a minute against Cory Schneider and the New Jersey Devils.

Simmonds gets his first of the season by showing some serious patience before wristing the puck past Schneider late in the second period in Philadelphia. And 56 seconds later, he pushes to the front of the Devils’ net and taps in an excellent feed from Vincent Lecavalier to beat the buzzer signalling the end of the period:

The 26-year-old Simmonds is coming off a career-best 29-goal season, and with news the Flyers will be without veteran blueliner Braydon Coburn for some time to come, they’ll need their forwards to help out the defense corps with nights like the one Simmonds had.
