Sidney Crosby scored the home team’s only goal Wednesday night in the Pittsburgh Penguins’ 2-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers (7-10-1).
It marked the third straight loss for Pittsburgh (11-7) and the sixth win in 10 games for the Flyers following Philadelphia’s surprising 1-7 start to the NHL season. Marc-Andre Fleury (10-5) stopped 19 of 21 shots, but took the loss.
Brayden Schenn scored both of Philadelphia’s goals. Winner goaltender Ray Emery (2-3), the Flyers’ backup, made 30 saves.
The Flyers had lost four straight and six of their last eight meetings against Pittsburgh, but are 9-2-1 at Consol Energy Center. The Pens have been held to just a single goal in each of their last three games.
The Penguins will face Nashville (8-8-2) in Pittsburgh at 7:00 PM on Friday. The next Penguins broadcast on 96.3 KQW will be that of Saturday night’s game in New Jersey. Radio broadcast airtime will be 6:30 PM.
