Flyers - Penguins Recap Quickie

The Flyers earned a season series split, 2-2, with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the final chapter of this season's "Battle of PA" with a 6-2 win on Sunday night and finish up their four game road trip 2-2. After the Penguins drew first blood the Flyers responded with the next four goals to take a 4-1 lead. The Penguins would cut it to 4-2 midway through the third period before the Flyers iced it with a pair of goals in the final minutes for the 6-2 final. The Flyers keep their extremely slim playoff hops alive by moving within six points of the second wild card with just seven games left, keep the fingers crossed. The Flyers improve to 35-32-8 (35-40), and the Penguins drop to 46-18-11 (46-29).
