Claude Giroux had two goals and Sergei Bobrovsky added 26 saves as the Flyers beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2. The animosity between the rivals was evident from the start with two fights before the game had even reached the 5 minute mark. It was the Penguins who struck first on a goal from Kris Letang 8 minutes in. The Flyers would equalize in the second period on a shorthanded goal from Claude Giroux and take the lead near the end of the period when Dan Carcillo scored.
Griroux would add his second goal of the night and fourth of the year in the third to give the Flyers a 3-1 lead. The Pens pulled their goalie late in the game and Sidney Crosby fed Tyler Kennedy who scored with about :45 left to make it a one goal game, but the Flyers held on for the final few seconds to get their fifth win of the year.
The Flyers have now won both games they’ve played in Pittsburgh’s new CONSOL Energy Center. The Flyers come back home tomorrow night to face the New York Islanders.
