April 26, 1997 -- In Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals in Philadelphia, Rod Brind'Amour's phenomenal accomplishment helped the Flyers eliminate the Penguins 6-3. Brind'Amour netted two SHGs in a span of 54 seconds in the first period ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoQmalkotz0 ) and tied NHL records for most SHGs by a player in one period and in one playoff game; it was the second fastest such feat by a player in NHL PO history (Tom Fitzgerald of the NYI scored twice in 48 seconds against Pittsburgh in 1993). He also set a team record for fastest two goals by a player in a PO game (broken by Eric Lindros about two weeks later). Lindros scored the second fastest PO goal to start a game in team history (Terry Murray at 0:07 in 1981 at Quebec) to put Philly on top 1-0 at the 0:14 mark. Goals by Kevin Hatcher and Mario Lemieux (1-1-2), who announced April 5, 1997 that he would retire upon completion of this season and was given a loud show of appreciation in this his last game (he returned in 2000), gave Pittsburgh a 2-1 lead. Brind'Amour's two goals came with Petr Svoboda in the box in the final 2:22 of the opening period and gave Philly a 3-2 lead. Ron Francis' PPG made it 3-3 in the second period. John LeClair and Trent Klatt gave Philly a two-goal cushion as the Flyers held a 37-11 shots advantage through two periods and 45-18 in the game. Vaclav Prospal scored an ENG. Brind'Amour (2-1-3), Lindros (1-1-2) and Janne Niinimaa (0-2-2) led the offense and Garth Snow made 15 saves. Jaromir Jagr (0-3-3) had three points and Ken Wregget made 39 saves for Pittsburgh. The Penguins went 0-15-1 in their last 16 road games.

  • 2011 -- December 8 -- The Flyers ended the night on top of the Eastern Conference after a 3-2 home win. Danny Briere, who was struggling with the flu, scored in the first period on a goal deflected off two Penguins. Later in the opening period, the Penguins failed to score during a 5-on-3 for 1:10 while two Flyers' defenders played without sticks for part of the play. Wayne Simmonds (1-1-2) and Scott Hartnell added second period goals which gave Philly a 3-0 lead. James Neal and Evgeni Malkin (1-1-2) scored for the Penguins. Andrei Meszaros had a game-high 7 hits and was a +2. Ilya Bryzgalov made 25 saves. The Flyers had a 29-27 shots despite Pittsburgh's 14-7 advantage in the third period. Harry Zolniercyk and Tyler Kennedy fought ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqLFGYOYl4o ). Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0P0mJD8oNA

  • 2011 -- December 29 -- Jaromir Jagr and Max Talbot, two ex-Penguins, scored in the Flyers' 4-2 win at Pittsburgh. Jagr scored the go-ahead goal and Talbot had an ENG. Kimmo Timonen tied the game with his first goal of the season and Matt Read snapped a 9-game drought to make it 3-1. Sergei Bobrovsky, who improved to 4-0 at the Consol Energy Center, made 24 saves and his only allowed goal came 44 seconds into the game. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mADsQXuRywA .

  • 2012 -- February 18 -- Matt Cooke (2-1-3) scored twice and Marc-Andre Fleury made 27 saves in the Penguins' 6-4 win at Philly. Cooke and Jordan Staal (1-1-2) scored SHGs 1:43 apart to give Pittsburgh a 3-2 lead. Cooke's goal came during a 2-man advantage which led to Sergei Bobrovsky (14 saves, 17 shots) replacing Ilya Bryzgalov (10 saves, 13 shots) with 3:03 left in the second period. Less than two minutes later, Eric Wellwood scored his first NHL goal to make it 3-3. Dustin Jeffrey scored the go-ahead goal in the opening minute of the third period, the first of three goals by the Penguins in the opening 9:02 which made it 6-3. Jaromir Jagr (2-0-2) scored twice in 18 seconds to give Philly a 2-1 lead which held through the first period. Nick Grossman played in his first game with the Flyers. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8q735Tuctw

  • 2012 -- March 18 -- Scott Hartnell scored the latest OT goal in team history (0.9 seconds left) in the Flyers' 3-2 home victory which snapped the Penguins' 11-game win streak. Hartnell tied the score 2-2 4:47 into the third period. Kimmo Timonen (1-1-2), who celebrated his 37th birthday, got Philly on the board 31 seconds into the third period. Ilya Bryzgalov made 38 saves. The Penguins led 2-0 through two periods and held a 27-10 shots advantage (40-27 in the game). Craig Adams (1-1-2) and Kris Letang (0-2-2) factored into both goals. Hartnell and Chris Kunitz had a confrontation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3B7Qt_bu9E). Zac Rinaldo got five stitches to the mouth from an errant Hartnell stick ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ojd3uftjnR8 ). Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRibW2XYRNw

  • 2012 -- April 1 -- Jakub Voracek (2-1-3) scored twice in the third period and Sergei Bobrovsky made 43 saves in the Flyers' 6-4 win at Pittsburgh. The Flyers improved to 5-0-0 all-time at the Consol Energy Center. Claude Giroux (1-2-3) also had three points. Brayden Coburn was a +4. The Penguins held a 47-26 shots advantage including 30-14 through two periods when the scored was tied 2-2. Wayne Simmonds' PPG 2:35 into the third period made it 3-2 and was part of five straight goals by the Flyers after trailing 2-0 in the opening 4:58. Steve Sullivan (2-0-2) had two Pittsburgh goals. Nicklas Grossmann missed the rest of the regular season after a knee-on-knee hit by Joe Vitale in the first period. Vitale later injured Danny Briere, who also missed the balance of the regular season, on a check with 1:03 to play moments after the Flyers made it 6-3. That play created a chaotic scene which included a shouting match between coaches, the ejections of Peter Laviolette (fined $10,000) and Tony Granato (Penguins' assistant fined $2,500), led to 27 PIMs for the Flyers and 25 PIMs to the Penguins, four unsportsmanlike minors to each side, and fighting majors to Simmonds and Derek Engelland ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPgr2DwWzIk). After the game, Laviolette said "Those guys hadn't been out there in 12 minutes. It's a gutless move by their coach. It's gutless." Penguins' head coach Dan Bylsma said "It's clearly a cheap shot. It's clearly a guy targeting a player that was well after the whistle," regarding Brayden Schenn's cross-check of Sidney Crosby following the Penguins' third goal ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6yYQ-Lwy7g ). Game highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ov4pe...feature=relmfu and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UDsVK...feature=relmfu

  • 2012 -- April 7 -- The Penguins won the regular season finale 4-2 at Pittsburgh. Sidney Crosby's (1-1-2) PPG with 2:06 left in the second period was the go-ahead goal and Evgeni Malkin's 50th (1-1-2) with 12 seconds remaining in the same period gave Pittsburgh a 4-2 lead. Chris Kunitz (1-1-2) also scored and had two points. Marc Andre-Fleury (14 saves, 15 shots) was replaced by Brent Johnson (5 saves, 6 shots) in an otherwise meaningless game with playoff seedings already finalized. Brayden Schenn (1-1-2) and Jaromir Jagr (1-1-2) scored for the Flyers and Sergei Bobrovsky made 19 saves. Harry Zolniercyk and Joe Vitale fought 2:22 into the game ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xh45mMXUwqc ). Zac Rinaldo was tossed in the first period http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWMB2RMGCiY). Game highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLkm6xPDe9U


For the first time in team history, the Flyers had three multiple-goal scorers in a PO game in an explosive 8-4 home win. Danny Briere (2-1-3), who picked up his 100th NHL PO point and was named the game's top star, Matt Read (2-0-2) and Max Talbot (2-0-2) combined for six goals. Second and third stars were Claude Giroux (1-1-2) and Jaromir Jagr (0-3-3). Eight Flyers had multiple-point games. Ilya Bryzgalov made 31 saves. The Flyers' PP was 4-for-7, which tied a team record for PPGs in a PO game, while the Penguins went 1-for-5.

The teams combined for 158 PIMs (89 for the Penguins, 69 for the Flyers), 38 penalties and four ejections (three to Pittsburgh). Kimmo Timonen and Kris Letang were both ejected during a brawl 12:02 into the first period brawl which produced 24 PIMs to the Flyers and 22 PIMs to the Penguins including fighting majors to Giroux and Sidney Crosby who later said "I don't like the Flyers. I don't like him (Voracek)" and a sampling included swatting Giroux's fallen glove ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_5_D29bdFg ). Arron Asham was tossed with a match penalty with 5:45 left in the first period for a high crosscheck and then punching a prone and defenseless Brayden Schenn. Two days later, Asham was suspended for four games ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNFuD0fBt50 ). James Neal drilled Sean Couturier with 5:23 left in the game on a play that wasn't penalized ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUcoBa1kOaQ ) but on the same shift, with 4:52 to play, made contact with Giroux in the back and head area. Because of those plays, Neal had separate meetings with the NHL two days later and was issued a one-game suspension for the hit against Giroux. With 4:42 left in the game, Craig Adams was ejected in the third period and suspended one game for instigating a fight in which he pulled Scott Hartnell's hair ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWe_9...feature=relmfu ). Penguins' head coach Dan Bylsma was fined $10,000 since the fight happened in the final five minutes of the game. During that brawl, the Penguins had 43 PIMs to the Flyers 21 PIMs. Zac Rinaldo picked up a double minor and a misconduct with 2:22 left.

The game swung to the wild side after Talbot's SHG made it 1-1, when a scrum ensued immediately following the goal. The Flyers had a PP then eventually a 5-on-3 when Peter Laviolette, for the third straight game, used a timeout in the first period, and the situation climaxed with a Briere PPG which gave Philly a 2-1 lead. Briere scored about three minutes later to make it 3-1. Philly led 4-2 after the first period. Wayne Simmonds' breakaway gave the Flyers a 6-4 lead with 46 seconds left in the second period. Jagr's amazing one-handed pass set up Giroux to make it 7-4 ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zzSWdPM67c ). Marc-Andre Fleury made 22 saves but was replaced after the second period by Brent Johnson (4 saves) who surrendered a goal to Giroux on the first shot he faced. Neal (2-1-3) and Jordan Staal (2-0-2) both scored twice for Pittsburgh. The Flyers totaled 16 goals in the last two games (the most for a team in the POs since Los Angeles had 18 vs. Calgary in 1993) and 20 goals through the first three games, both franchise highs. Through three games, Philly went 6-for-10 on PPs to Pittsburgh's 3-for-12 and the Flyers had 3 SHGs to zero for the Penguins. Giroux became the seventh Flyer (Paul Holmgren did it twice) to have a Gordie Howe Hat Trick in a PO game. Game highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0SPs84Pv8s

Win this one for Coots, G and Schenn.....but mainly Coots and G who were essentially denied justice. Don't let ShanaSCAM's horrid decision become a rallying cry for Pitt who would get Neal back for game 5 if they win tomorrow....

I'm sure the Penguins won't see that.

Should have saved that for after the series.

I hope they put Staal on Malkin's line. Let Couturier shut them down and neither Briere nor Giroux have to worry about Staal (not that he did a good job on G in the last 2 games, but he's still their best defensive forward).

So, what are the chances they go headhunting if they know they can't win?

Considering Crosby's psychopathic comments patting himself and the team on the back for trying to injure people..I would say quite high.

I still think Malkin is going to try and carve Couturier's eyes out with his stick if they are down with no chance to win the game....guy is a big coward.

Yeah. I'm thinking the same thing.

I'm shocked Malkin hasn't tried to break Sean's ankles or wrists yet. If he's got nothing to lose and he's frustrated, though, I'm sure the ogre will come out.

I expect to see a 5 minute PP for one of the teams. Someone's going to do something dumb.
I'm looking at you, Rinaldo.

he's taken his share of runs at our guys, just hasn't connected very much

Wow that's NY Post level right there. Funny how they have the glove sitting there on the ice. Nice touch.

I do not live in Philadelphia, and have no idea what that newspaper is like...
But that cover is ridiculous, embarassing and potentially bulletin board material.

Hate it.

So, are the pens reserving the golf course spots yet?
