Today was Jaromir Jagr’s 117th career two-goal game. His last came on December 2 vs. Anaheim.
Per the Elias Sports Bureau, the last 5-on-3 goal against the Flyers was on March 9, 1993 at NYI when Benoit Hogue scored into an empty net at 19:59 of the third period. The last 5-on-3 goal allowed by the Flyers that was not an empty-net goal was Dec. 28, 1979 at Winnipeg, scored by Jude Drouin at 4:52 of the first period.
Also per Elias, there has only been one other occasion where the Flyers have allowed two shorthanded goals within two minutes of one another: Jan. 30, 1969 vs. Chicago when the Blackhawks scored two shorthanded goals in the span of 1:01 in the first period (Stan Mikita at 2:06, Chico Maki at 3:07). Chicago won the game 12-0. Today’s goals were scored 1:43 apart.
Of the ten goals scored today between the two teams, three of them were unassisted and four more only had one assist credited.

* in Toronto, Burke has been incredibly patient with Columbus regarding Nash, but it may ending as I am hearing very strong rumors Toronto is looking elswhere. Lookin at Getzlaf more seriously than ever before.
The Penguins must like 30-goal scorers because less than 24 hours after James Neal became one, he signed a six-year extension that’ll keep him in Pittsburgh until 2018.
For becoming the first Pen to score 30 goals in a season since 2002 not named Sidney Crosby or Geno Malkin, Neal will get a Real Deal $5 million a year until he’s 30 years old. Not too shabby.
This was a great...

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby skated with his teammates for the first time in more than two months on Friday but remains bothered by concussion-like symptoms.
The Stars traded 27 year old Nicklas Grossman to the Philadelphia Flyers Thursday for a 2nd round pick in 2012 and a 3rd rounder in 2013. Grossman has been a steady defender for the Stars over his career so far, but he’s an impending UFA at the end of the season and it looks like GM Joe just wan’t interested in giving him any type of raise.
It’s not like Grossman couldn’t...
