Penguins hit double digits against Flyers

Posted:

Pushed to the brink of a sweep, Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Jordan Staal pushed back with a vengeance, helping the Penguins score nine goals in the first two periods in a 10-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers in their opening-round playoff series.

Staal had a hat trick and Malkin scored his first two goals of the series. Crosby added one to help the Penguins cut the series deficit to 3-1. Game 5 is Friday in Pittsburgh.

The Flyers led 3-2 when the Penguins reeled off seven straight goals to win the most lopsided game of the series.

In last night's other playoff series:

-- The Ottawa Senators nipped the New York Rangers 3-2 in overtime. Kyle Turris got the game-winner. That series is tied 2-2.

-- The team that posted the NHL's best regular-season record has finally won a playoff game. Presidents' Trophy winner Vancouver beat the L.A. Kings 3-1 and now trail the series 3-1. Cory Schneider made 43 saves and stopped Dustin Brown's penalty shot in his first career playoff victory. Daniel Sedin  sparked Vancouver's power play in his return from injury for 12 games.
