Penguins 6, Flyers 2: Lehigh Valley’s best can’t put a stop to a streaking Pittsburgh team

First period: Despite an early power play for the Flyers, the first period scoring opened with a Penguins goal from Bryan Rust, who put away a goal-line angle shot off a pass from Kris Letang. Things only got worse from there. A covered puck dug loose from Tristan Jarry by Scott Laughton was jammed home post-whistle, leading to some vintage Flyers-Penguins action in front of the net and penalties for both aforementioned players — slashing on Jarry and roughing on Laughton.
