Flyers fall to Penguins

January 13, 2009 6:44:22 PM PST
Evgeni Malkin and Jordan Staal each scored goals, and Sidney Crosby had a pair of assists that sparked the sputtering Pittsburgh Penguins to a needed 4-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night. The Penguins won for only the second time in nine games and scored four straight goals to put an emphatic end to Philadelphia's eight-game home winning streak. They also got goals from Tyler Kennedy and Matt Cooke, and Marc-Andre Fleury nicely rebounded from a first-period blunder to stop 27 shots.

Pittsburgh played the first two periods more like the team that beat the Flyers in last year's Eastern Conference finals than the one that came in stuck in an alarming slump that left them outside a playoff spot.
