Cooke scored twice and had an assist, while Staal had a goal and an assist as the Pens beat their intrastate rivals for the first time in three meetings this season.
Jaromir Jagr scored a pair of goals 18 seconds apart in the first period for the Flyers, rookie Eric Wellwood scored his first NHL goal and Wayne Simmonds also had a goal.
