Penguins put on clinic, Flyers a no-show
Put the rivalry and the hatred for the Pittsburgh Penguins aside for a moment and recognize what was just the truth on Saturday. The Pittsburgh Penguins played a brilliant game. They put on a clinic.
There was meaning to this game for both sides. Pittsburgh was looking to further establish a place in the playoffs. The Flyers were looking to get the edge back in the wildcard race -- a win would put them back into the final spot over the Red Wings.
The Flyers flat out failed to show up.
That made for a huge setback for the Flyers, who dropped their first game in regulation in over two weeks with a 4-1 loss to the Penguins.
