Play by Play
PENS 6 Flyers 2

3rd Period

0:07 - Another sucessful penalty kill by the Pens!

1:39 - FEHR SCORES A SHORTHANDED EMPTY NET GOAL! Cullen and Fehr get a 2 on 1 chance! Cullen makes the pass over the Fehr who doesn't miss! 6-2 Pens!

2:00 - Flyers have an empty net.

2:07 - Flyers will now get a power play chance as Bonino sits for hooking.

3:47 - Simmonds knocks the puck out of the air with a high stick. It bounces off the back of the net behind the crossbar, off the back of Murray, and into the net. The referee waves it off for the high stick by Simmonds. No goal.

4:42 - The power play for the Pens comes to an end.

6:42 - Gostisbehere will head to the box for holding, sending the Pens onto the power play.

7:47 - Things are starting to get out of hand. Kessel gets a slash on the hands after the play.

9:02 - Simmonds puts his stick under the mask of Murray and no call by the ref. Very dirty play.

10:17 - FEHR SCORES! McDonald is falling as Kuhnhackl is going in for the hit and the puck is coughed up! Cullen makes a pirouette play to get the puck to Fehr in the slot! Fehr puts it past Mason! 5-2 Pens

11:56 - Voracek scores. Voracek gets a stick on a shot in front and deflects it past the shoulder of Murray. 4-2 Pens

15:46 - HAGELIN SCORES! Letang fires from the blue line and Bonino redirects the puck to the side! Hagelin gets a stick on it while on his belly to put it in the open net! Hard work pays off! 4-1 Pens

17:24 - Glad to Letang back on the ice and looking alright after the Simmonds hit.

20:00 - We are back for the third period! The Pens have to keep pressuring and playing smart hockey! Lets Go Pens!

2nd Period
0:00 - Second period ends and the Pens have the 3-1 lead over the Flyers!

0:41 - Simmonds scores. Simmonds toe drags and fires one over the shoulder of Murray. 3-1 Pens

1:21 - Murray makes three unreal saves as the scramble ensues in front. Kessel keeps track and helps out defensively.

3:11 - Letang takes a hard elbow/forearm to the head from Simmonds. No call. He seems to be ok, but he is flexing his jaw on the bench.

4:39 - The Pens are still controlling this one. The defense is doing a solid job of jumping up into plays, but not without someone to cover. Not giving the Flyers any odd man chances.

6:30 - Crosby gets a chance at the side, but his shot goes over of the net. I don't think Mason touched that one.

9:26 - HORNQVIST SCORES! HIS FIRST GOAL AGAINST THE FLYERS! Hornqvist gets the puck back as he pressures the Flyers in their zone! His first shot is blocked at center, but he gets the rebound and rifles one past Mason! 3-0 Pens

11:24 - The puck bounces up in the air and Kessel bats it out of air towards the net. Mason had to makes the save. Great hand-eye coordination.

12:09 - Hornqvist gets back to break up a breakaway chance for Voracek and gets his stick in the way. Murray takes care of the rest.

13:07 - Schultz rifles a shot from the point that finds its way through traffic and Mason makes the pad save.

15:19 - The defense of the Pens does a great job of forcing the Flyers offsides.

17:26 - A Flyer is without a stick and Sheary is able to get the puck to Sundqvist right on the doorstep! Mason just gets a piece of the shot.

20:00 - Time for the second period! The Pens have to keep up the pressure and stay out of the box! Lets Go Pens!

1st Period
0:00 - First period ends with the Pens leading 2-0!

3:14 - BENNETT SCORES! Sheary comes into the zone with two guys covering him! He protects the puck against the back checker, holds, and makes a pass across to Bennett! Bennett finishes the play off! 2-0 Pens

4:22 - CROSBY SCORES ON THE POWER PLAY! Kessel fires a shot that is redirected by Crosby right in front, but Mason makes the save! Crosby gets the rebound and bangs it home as he falls down! 1-0 Pens

4:57 - Now time for a Pens power play as Simmonds heads to the sin bin for hooking.

6:29 - Shots are now 10-4 in favor of the Pens. Not many shots getting to the goalies right now.

8:02 - The Flyers get a cycle going in the offensive zone. Kuhnhackl comes up with two huge blocks and the Pens are able to clear the puck. Kuhnhackl is hunched over the bench though.

11:08 - Nice puck movement by the Pens and they are getting chances, but Mason is doing a good job of controlling things with the glove.

13:57 - Shots are 9-4 in favor of the Pens.

15:39 - Successful kill for the Pens as Cole is set free.

16:21 - Murray does a great job of shutting down two quality chances by the Flyers. Also, the Pens did a solid job of boxing out Flyer players.

17:39 - The first power play of the game will go to the Flyers as Cole is sent off for interference. 

17:51 - Still no shots registered for the Flyers. 

19:36 - Crosby gets a early chance, but Mason lays out to make the save.

20:00 - The puck has been dropped at Consol! Let the battle begin! The Pens have to come out with speed and not let the Flyers control the tempo! Lets Go Pens!

  1. I love the moment you shared with us. But I hate it when they fight. Hockey is my favorite game that's why recently I bought hockey iphone cases so that I can show off this with my friends. Because this case is so unique and got it at a low price.
