The Philadelphia Flyers were lucky to get out of the second period with just a one-goal deficit in Game 5, as the Pittsburgh Penguins took complete control of the game and grabbed a 3-2 lead. Tyler Kennedy's goal at the 9:53 mark of the period gave the Pens their first lead of the game.
Wayne Simmonds screened goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov on the play, and the Flyers netminder didn't have a chance on the perfectly placed shot by Kennedy. Perhaps the Penguin could have been smoother with his celebration, but we doubt he or the CONSOL Energy Center crowd care at this point.
Philly got away from their game in the first period and, if they want to end this series in Game 5, they're going to have to regain control and get some chances on Marc-Andre Fleury's net.
