Pens fall to the Flyers 3-2 in OT
The Penguins and Flyers are bitter rivals for many reasons.
And Scott Hartnell’s goal with just 0.9 seconds left in overtime to give Philadelphia a 3-2 win at Wells Fargo Center on Sunday is surely near the top of that list from Pittsburgh’s perspective.
“With 0.9 seconds left, for them to get a goal was tough,” goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury said.
The Flyers ended the Penguins’ win streak at 11 games, which stands as the NHL’s longest this season. This is the second year in a row Philadelphia has played the role of spoiler, as they halted Pittsburgh’s 12-game winning streak in the 2010-11 campaign.
Despite the loss, the Penguins are technically unbeaten through their last 12 with the overtime loss. And they still came away with a point to climb within just one point of the Eastern Conference-leading New York Rangers for first place in the Atlantic Division.
The Penguins finished their tough three-game divisional road trip that also visited the Rangers and the Devils with five out of six possible points.
