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.

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).
