Murray in the net!

Play by Play

3rd Period
0:00 - The horn sounds to end the game and the Flyers come out with the 4-0 win. Terrible game by the Pens. They had a great first period, but fell a part after that.

0:47 - Weise scores. Schenn's first shot goes off the goal post, but he gets the rebound. He fires on net and the puck bounces off the stick of Weise past Murray. 4-0 Flyers

1:25 - Not much to update since the last goal. The Pens haven't been able to create any chances or zone time.

9:11 - The Pens are back to full strength.

9:30 - Sundqvist gets a shorthanded breakaway, but his denied by Mason.

20:00 - We are back for the third period! Time for the Pens to kick things into another gear! Lets Go Pens!

2nd Period
0:00 - That will bring an end to the second period and the Flyers hold the 2-0 lead.

6:12 - Some good puck movement by the Pens, but they haven't been able to set up sustained offensive zone time.

1st Period
