The Flyers travel to Pittsburgh to play the Penguins in the final game of Philadelphia’ssix-game road trip in a matchup of two Atlantic division rivals.
The Flyers (7-9-1) come into Wednesday’s contest fresh off of a humbling, 7-0 victoryover the New York Islanders on Monday, a game that saw the team in complete control from start to finish. The Islanders only managed to make nineteen shots on Ilya Bryzgalov, who stop every single one for his first shutout of the season.
Flyers Captain Claude Giroux was among those to break out in a big way after the Center delivered a pre-game speech to his players that demanded more from everyone, including himself, in light of the team’s poor play as of late. Giroux scored two goals and added an assist for his first three-point game of the season.
RW Jakub Voracek had four assists in the game, and C Danny Briere scored two thirdperiod goals for the Flye
