A third period collapse by the Penguins turned a 3-0 lead into a 4-3 overtime loss and a shift of momentum to the Eastern Pennsylvanians. The Flyers, having survived their first period nightmare are just a little emboldened as they head into game number two.
A pivotal game for the Pens who will want to be on even terms heading east, the prospect of playing in Philly down two games something that no one in Pittsburgh will want to give much trade to.
Game Two-- Philadelphia 8 at Pittsburgh 5
Flyers lead the series 2 games to 0
