Flyers Vs. Penguins Final Score: Philly Falls, 6-4

Fresh off a 7-2 thrashing of the Buffalo Sabers, the Philadelphia Flyers fell to their cross-state rivals, the Pittsburgh Penguins, by a final score of 6-4 Saturday. The loss drops the Flyers to 32-19-7 on the season and they're now tied for the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference with the Penguins at 71 points a piece. Both teams only trail the second-seed Burins by a point, but are also only a point ahead of six-seed New Jersey.
