Mathieu Perrault (former Calder Cup champion with Hershey for all you 717'ers) scored Winnipeg's only two goals of the game in the first and came close to the hat trick more than once thereafter.
Schultz's goal came in the second. After Ryan White put one on net Petr Straka was there to continuously jab the rebound away from Winnipeg goalie Michael Hutchinson. Schultz, realizing that all three defenders at the puck had their back turned to him, snuck into the melee and shot the puck high past Hutchinson for the goal.
Brayden Schenn added an insurance goal early in the third, rocketing the puck over Hutchinson's shoulder from the middle of the zone, and Sean Couturier found the empty net to make it 5-2.
Steve Mason exceeded expectation tonight, saving 36 of 38 shots faced.
This three game winning streak marks the fourth time this year the Flyers have met that mark. Not yet though, have they been able to turn one of those into a four game winning streak. They'll attempt to make this time different on Saturday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Wells Fargo Center. Puck drop is at 7:00 pm.
