Pittsburgh Penguins @ Philadelphia Flyers Game #2
The Battle of Pennsylvania continued with Pittsburgh jumping out to a 2-0 lead 3:49 into game two. Price (1) and Dea (3) putting the Pens up before Van Impe of the Flyers drew Price into a fight, swinging momentum towards Philadelphia.
And swing it did with the hosts tied at 2-2 before the end of the period thanks to goals from Hannigan (2) on the breakaway and Rochefort (4). They took over the lead in the middle frame when Sutherland (5) scored the period's only goal, and then Sutherland (6) was on hand again in the third to make it 4-2.
A powerplay goal from Bathgate (1) brought Pittsburgh back within one with over eight minutes still to play, but Kennedy (4) wrapped it up four minutes from time to put the Flyers up in the series 2-0.
