Well, that wasn’t good.
After a Phil Kessel power play goal with 1:25 left capped off a choppy first period that saw six minor penalties called, the Philadelphia Flyers took the lead less than six minutes into the second on goals by Jakub Voracek and Travis Konecny to put Philly up 2-1 on the Pittsburgh Penguins on a nationally televised contest at the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night.
The lead, however, was short-lived. Jamie Oleksiak tied the game, and Connor Sheary added a pair of goals to give Pittsburgh a 4-2 lead after 40 minutes.
The Flyers played a mostly non-threatening third period, directing only nine shots on Penguins netminder Tristan Jarry, and Evgeni Malkin tacked on an empty-netter to put the game away and move the Penguins into first place in the Metropolitan division, three points ahead of the third place Flyers.
