Johnson has go-ahead goal, Lightning beat Penguins 5-4 Tyler Johnson and J.T Miller had third-period goals as the Tampa Bay Lightning stopped a rare two-game skid with a 5-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night. BOX SCORE: LIGHTNING 5, PENGUINS 4 After Johnson got his first goal in 15 games just under five minutes into the period, Miller gave Tampa Bay a 5-3 lead with 5:57 remaining. Tanner Pearson pulled the Penguins within 5-4 shortly after Miller's goal off a steal and pass from behind the net by Sidney Crosby. Crosby played in his 916th game, moving past Mario Lemieux for the most in Penguins history.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Claude Giroux reigned again as Philadelphia's captain in the clutch.

The Flyers and Penguins took one of the NHL's more heated rivalries outdoors and into prime time as part of the Stadium Series showcase. The rink that stretched from 30-yard line to 30-yard line needed a squeegee more than a Zamboni, but nearly 70,000 fans stuck around the home of the Eagles to watch the Flyers play the marquee game on their schedule.

BOX SCORE: FLYERS 4, PENGUINS 3 (OT)

The Flyers gave them a win to remember.

With rain pounding the ice in third period, the Flyers got going. James van Riemsdyk, playing in his record sixth outdoor game, made it 3-2 on a power-play goal with 3:04 left. Jake Voracek tied it at 3-all with 19.7 seconds left, sending what was left of the sellout crowd into a frenzy.

Giroux, the Flyers' All-Star captain, made sure the game didn't last much longer. He slipped the winner past Matt Murray, and the Flyers celebrated in the mist. Giroux said he felt ''goosebumps'' scoring in the clutch in his 800th career game.

Flames snap 4-game skid, beating Penguins 5-4

Flames snap 4-game skid, beating Penguins 5-4 Michael Frolik had the first of four second-period goals for Calgary, and the Flames held on to snap a season-long four-game skid with a 5-4 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday. Frolik, Austin Czarnik, Travis Hamonic and Sam Bennett scored during a mid-game 17-minute span for Calgary, which avenged a 9-1 loss to Pittsburgh in October during the teams' other meeting this season. Back after serving a one-game suspension for swinging his stick at Philadelphia's Michael Raffl, Evgeni Malkin had a pair of third-period power-play goals for the Penguins.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Claude Giroux reigned again as Philadelphia’s captain in the clutch. Giroux ’s shield provided little relief from the heavy rain that turned the ice into such a puddled mess that it needed a squeegee more than a Zamboni.

RELATED: Gritty's entrance

''I was able to get a step on their D and squeak in my goal,'' Giroux said.

Giroux capped a stunning comeback in what has mostly been a season to forget for the Flyers.

Gritty, the Flyers wildly popular rookie mascot, zip lined in a glow-in-the-dark jersey from the top of the Linc to kick off the party, and later was caught streaking as he scurried away from ''security'' in a mad scamper toward the tunnel.

As usual, Gritty was a hit.

Wayne Simmonds delivered perhaps the biggest one at the Linc since Brian Dawkins roamed the Eagles' secondary when he plowed Penguins defenseman Brian Dumoulin into the boards with a shoulder to the head. Dumoulin dropped to the ice while a melee escalated around him and the crowd went wild. Pittsburgh defenseman Kris Letang appeared to get hurt in the dust-up and the Penguins played the last two periods without their top two blue liners.

Surging Flyers beat Red Wings 3-1 for 12th win in 14 games

Surging Flyers beat Red Wings 3-1 for 12th win in 14 games The surging Philadelphia Flyers posted a 3-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night. The Flyers have won 12 of their last 14 games, moving into contention for a wild card in the Eastern Conference playoffs or perhaps for one of the three guaranteed postseason spots available in the Metropolitan Division. BOX SCORE: FLYERS 3, RED WINGS 1 Lindblom scored early in the game and had an empty-net goal with 1:26 left. Rookie Carter Hart finished with 37 saves. Darren Helm tied the game early in the second period and on a night the Red Wings failed to score despite a lot of shots.

Claude Giroux scored twice, including the overtime winner , and Petr Mrazek made 36 saves as the Flyers beat the Bruins, 4 - 3 .

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Claude Giroux scored 1:59 into overtime and the Philadelphia Flyers scored three straight goals in the rain to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4 - 3 on a soggy Saturday night at Lincoln Financial Field. He slipped the winner past Matt Murray, and the Flyers celebrated in the mist.

Sidney Cosby seemingly bailed out a Penguins team that dropped out of the Eastern Conference playoff standings with the loss. Inside, outside, all around the state, Crosby simply torments the Flyers. He gave the Penguins a 1-0 lead with his 26th goal of the season midway through the first period and had an assist on Justin Schultz's goal for a 2-1 lead in the second.

Crosby now has 99 career points in 66 games against the Flyers in venues that stretch from the Civic Arena, PPG Paints Arena, Heinz Field, Wells Fargo Center to the Linc.

Crosby has three Stanley Cups - or, one more than the Flyers have in franchise history - and there was plenty of yellow-and-black scattered throughout Philly. The stadium complex parking lots were fit for an Eagles tailgate and fans camped out for a party since early morning. Flyers fans needed an excuse to cut loose - the season has been a disaster and both the general manager and coach were fired only two months into the season.

Gritty had some serious competition for Flyers rookie of the year when the team called up 20-year-old goalie Carter Hart, who won eight straight games to give the Flyers a brief glimmer of playoff hope. Flyers coach Scott Gordon caused a bit of an uproar when he announced Friday his decision to go with Brian Elliott in net over Hart. How could the Flyers bench their blossoming star in their feature game? By Saturday afternoon, critics had their answer: The Flyers said Hart will miss at least 10 days with an undisclosed injury.

James van Riemsdyk and Jakub Voracek scored to tie the game in the 3 rd, before Claude Giroux tallied the overtime winner in the Stadium Series. Guentzel scores four to lead Penguins to Second Round - Продолжительность: 5:58 NHL 178 186 просмотров.

Without Hart, Elliott struggled to keep pace with the Pens. Elliott gave up a rough one in the third when Evegni Malkin's shot popped up and into the net for a 3-1 lead as rain turned into a downpour.

The Pens could have used an umbrella from the Flyers' scoring barrage the rest of the way.

NOTES: Malkin has five goals in his last five games. ... The crowd of 69,620 was the fifth-largest in NHL history. ... Simmonds is a top candidate to get moved before Monday's trade deadline and could have played his last game with the Flyers. ... The on-ice mics picked up plenty of profanity from the refs and players during a scrum late in the game.
