All-Star Scott Hartnell tallied twice - with the latter coming 4:59 into overtime - as the Philadelphia Flyers overcame a two-goal deficit to snap visiting Pittsburgh's season-high 11-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory.

Defenseman Kimmo Timonen netted a power-play goal and fellow All-Star Claude Giroux notched a pair of assists for the Flyers, who improved to 8-1-1 in their last 10 games and moved to within two points of the Penguins and three of the first-place New York Rangers.

Ilya Bryzgalov turned aside 38 shots to give Philadelphia its third win in four meetings against Pittsburgh.

All-Star Evgeni Malkin netted his 41st goal, Craig Adams also tallied and defenseman Kris Letang notched a pair of assists for the Penguins, who failed to protect a third-period lead for the first time in 28 opportunities (25-1-2).

After joining the play on a late line change, Hartnell accepted a feed from Danny Briere and wired a shot from the slot which beat Marc-Andre Fleury for his career-best 35th goal.

After Malkin gave Pittsburgh a 2-0 edge with 53 seconds left in the second period following a brilliant individual effort, Philadelphia began its comeback shortly after the third began.

Timonen trimmed the deficit just 31 seconds into the session after his blast from the point beat a screened Fleury.

Hartnell leveled the contest after the Flyers took advantage of Malkin's giveaway. Giroux secured his NHL-leading 58th assist after finding Hartnell, who wired a sharp-angle shot just under the crossbar.
