Chris Kunitz scored his second goal just 18 seconds into the third period to cap a four-goal rally and lift the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 5-4 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.
Pascal Dupuis, James Neal and Tyler Kennedy also scored goals for the Atlantic Division-leading Penguins, who won their third straight game.
Jakub Voracek had two power-play goals, Zac Rinaldo and Kimmo Timonen also scored for the Flyers, who blew a 4-1 lead after the first period.
Both starting goalies -- Philadelphia's Ilya Bryzgalov and Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury -- were pulled after allowing four goals.
Scott Hartnell had his tying goal disallowed near the midpoint of the third period because his stick was above the crossbar when he deflected Timonen's shot into the net.
The Flyers fell to 11-13-1 and remain on the outside of the playoff race with 23 games remaining.

And for a little comic relief, after the break check out the "Duper Cam" where Pascal Dupuis commandeers the camera for a while. Continue reading "Penguins Hold Annual “Skates and Plates” Charity Gala"
As always, Mike Colligan delivers an elite performance on a big topic. From the Hockey Writers:
The Penguins will — and do — have interest in Jarome Iginla.
What playoff team wouldn’t want Jarome Iginla?
Come to think of it, what organization can’t call themselves a possible playoff team at this point?
Approximately halfway through the season, the last...
from Michael Arace of he Columbus Dispatch,
Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review connected the dots and came up with some quality speculation. The Penguins are looking for backline help. Defenseman Simon Despres, 21, a former first-round pick, is said to be available in trade and might be enough bait to get Jack Johnson.
Johnson might pair nicely with Kris Letang...
If you’re going to wear a “Sidney Crosby is a whiny little ******** shirt to a Flyers-Penguins game and sit behind the bench, try to pick the game when Sids doesn’t drop three assists on your ass. It’s not a good look. Pens fans beat me up for even posting it on Twitter.
It also doesn’t help when the Flyers had a 4-1 lead. Still, it’s good to see Philly fans being assholes...
The Pittsburgh Penguins got one of their best players back in their previous game, and the effect was undeniable.
They could be in line for another boost with the possible return of defenseman Paul Martin on Thursday night against the Flyers in Philadelphia.

Really early "Gameday" post today. The Pittsburgh Penguins enter the second half of the season with a game against the Maple Leafs. The Pens always seem to have trouble with the Maple Leafs.
There are wins. Then there are big wins. This game: ******* huge win. Maybe Dan Bylsma flipped out after the first period; maybe he didn't say anything. Whatever he did, it was the right move. The Pens now leave Philly knowing they can beat this Flyers team, and the importance of that can't be put into words.
It took the Penguins about 14 games over two...
