Penguins eliminate Flyers from playoffs

Down three goals and facing an inspired opponent in a hostile building, the Pittsburgh Penguins easily could've settled for going back home to play Game 7. Instead, Sergei Gonchar and Sidney Crosby helped the Penguins stage a remarkable comeback to advance to the next round.

Gonchar scored 2:19 into the third period and the Penguins eliminated the Philadelphia Flyers with a 5-3 victory Saturday in Game 6 of their Eastern Conference first-round series.

The Penguins, who beat the Flyers in the conference finals last year, have to wait to find out who they'll play next.
