Penguins Vs. Flyers Score: Philly Storms Back, Ties Game

This all seems too familiar, though with a bit of a twist. On Wednesday night, the Pittsburgh Penguins raced out to a 3-0 lead, then saw it evaporate as the Philadelphia Flyers came back to win 4-3. It's a similar story on Friday night: Pittsburgh took a 3-1 lead into the second period, and now we're tied at four headed into the third.

Claude Giroux was the hero of the period for the Flyers, scoring two goals in six minutes to knot the score at three midway through the second. Pittsburgh took the lead just six seconds later, though, as Chris Kunitz scored on the power play -- Giroux's goal had come short-handed.

Finally, with just 2.8 seconds left in the period, Philly answered once again. Sean Couturier found the back of the net with superb timing, and it's a whole new ballgame heading into the third period.
