This has not been the best weekend for the Pittsburgh Penguins. After suffering through a 4-0 drubbing in Philadelphia on Saturday, the Metropolitan division leaders are getting pretty fed up with their lackluster play again on Sunday.
The Flyers got out to a 2-0 lead early in Pittsburgh thanks to some sleepwalking by the Penguins defense. They've been sloppy and a step behind Philly throughout the first period, and star center Evgeni Malkin finally lost his cool when Zac Rinaldo started messing with him in the corner.
Yeah, that's not allowed. It resulted in the second of three power plays for the Flyers in the first period and really just sums up how badly the Penguins have played the last two days. Philadelphia has taken advantage, chasing Marc-Andre Fleury by taking a 3-0 lead in the first period.
