Quote:
April 26, 1997 -- Rod Brind'Amour's phenomenal accomplishment helped the Flyers eliminate the Penguins in Game 5, 6-3. Brind'Amour scored two SHGs in a span of 54 seconds in the first period 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).
FLYERS-PENGUINS' 2010-11 SERIES:
  • 2010 -- October 7 -- The Flyers spoiled the debut of Pittsburgh's Consol Energy Center with a 3-2 victory in both teams' season openers. Sergei Bobrovsky, who became the youngest Flyers' goalie to start on opening night at age 22 years and 17 days, made 29 saves and was chosen the game's top star. Danny Briere scored the first goal in the new building 2:51 into the second period and Philly led the remainder of the game. Blair Betts gave the Flyers a 2-0 lead late in the second period. Tyler Kennedy scored Pittsburgh's first goal in the opening minute of the third period. Claude Giroux's nifty SHG gave Philly a 3-1 lead but 19 seconds later Alex Goligowski made it 3-2. Chris Pronger did not play for the Flyers. The game drew an estimated 730,000 viewers on Versus, the most-viewed regular season NHL telecast ever on the network. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzBS3ZnUcjk

  • 2010 -- October 16 -- Brent Johnson made 29 saves and Sidney Crosby (2-1-3) scored consecutive PPGs in an 84-second span to lead Pittsburgh to a 5-1 win at Philly. The Pens scored three special teams' goals in the third period. Mark Letestu scored in the final minute of the second period to make it 2-1 Pens. After the game, an upset Mike Richards said about Matt Cooke I chased him around last year in this building, but he wouldnt have anything to do with it. Obviously in a one goal game at the end of the period he tries to come after me but when Sidney Crosby fights Carcillo maybe Ill fight him." Richards' post-game comments -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmgT1...layer_embedded
  • 2010 -- October 29 -- Claude Giroux (2-0-2) and Mike Richards, the game's top two stars, led the Flyers to a 3-2 win at Pittsburgh. Sergei Bobrovsky made 26 saves. Dan Carcillo, a recent healthy scratch, also scored. On one goal, Giroux said "Richie (Mike Richards) it was all him because he sees the ice so well." Four seconds into the contest, Richards fought Matt Cooke and later the Flyers' captain said The things that were said last game carried over and I was just trying to get the guys going I guess. Im not going to say anything (about Cooke) though. Its after a win. Im going to keep my mouth shut. There were 32 PIMs and 10 penalties called in the opening 3:59 of the game. The Flyers killed all six Pittsburgh PPs. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OXtAc3ck2I
  • 2010 -- December 14 -- Scott Hartnell's (1-1-2) PPG snapped a 2-2 tie midway in the third period and Brian Boucher made 21 saves in the Flyers' 3-2 home win that ended the Penguins' 12-game winning streak. The Flyers' PP was 0-for-5 prior to the goal (finished 1-for-6). Evgeni Malkin, who returned to the lineup after missing the last four games and was in the box during the decisive goal, scored two PPGs. Sidney Crosby had two assists and Marc-Andre Fleury made 34 saves. The Flyers killed a minor to Darroll Powe called with under three minutes remaining. The victory was the 20th for Philly, the 14th time the team reached that figure prior to Christmas, and enabled the Flyers to pass the Penguins as the top team in the NHL. The Penguins had not lost since November 15 and won their last six regular season visits to Philadelphia. It was the most watched regular season game ever on VERSUS and was also the most watched regular season NHL telecast on cable since December 4, 2003 (Detroit/St Louis on ESPN; 758,000 viewers). Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tM9YhUUkyrM

  • 2011 -- March 24 -- Chris Kunitz and Alex Kovalev scored shootout goals (won 2-1 in four rounds) to lift the Penguins to a 2-1 victory at Philly. Marc-Andre Fleury made 19 saves. Mike Richards and Tyler Kennedy scored in regulation. Sergei Bobrovsky made 30 saves and was chosen the game's top performer.
  • 2011 -- March 29 -- Sergei Bobrovsky made 25 saves in the Flyers' 5-2 win at Pittsburgh. The line of Ville Leino (2-1-3), Scott Hartnell (1-1-2) and Danny Briere (0-2-2) combined for seven points. Hartnell and Claude Giroux scored 47 seconds apart to give Philly a 3-2 lead. The Flyers scored the game's last four goals inclouding two by Leino in the third period. With the win, the Flyers opened up a four-point in the Atlantic Division over the Penguins. The Flyers swept the Penguins in Pittsburgh for the first time since the 1983-84 season. The Flyers established a team record with a 25th road victory. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxVKeKJoJ3g

FLYERS-PENGUINS' 2011-12 SERIES:
  • 2011 -- December 8 -- The Flyers skated to a 3-0 lead and held on for a 3-2 home win which bolted them into first place in the Eastern Conference. Danny Briere, struggling with the flu, scored in the first period on a goal deflected off two Penguins. Later in the opening period, the Penguins had a 5-on-3 for 1:10 with two Flyers' defenders playing without sticks for part of the play. Wayne Simmonds and Scott Hartnell added second period goals. Ilya Bryzgalov made 25 saves. The Flyers had a 29-27 shots edge but Pittsburgh held a 14-7 advantage in the third period.
