Flyers Shutout Pens in First Game of Home and Home This Weekend
Something funny happens when two rivaled franchises. Something is just added to each shift you take on the ice or minutes played on the court.
This is no different for when the Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins play against each other. This weekend the two PA rivals are doing a home and home and today, in case you’ve been under a rock, was the first game and boy did the Flyers come out to play. The Fly Guys blanked the Pens in a 4-0 win in the Wells Fargo Center this afternoon.
Steve Mason faced just 25 shots during the game and turned them all aside. Hartnell broke first blood in the first period on a lazer shot in his happy spot, right in the slot. Lecavalier added a goal himself and Matt Read rounded out the team adding 2 more goals. The captain, Claude Giroux contributed 2 assists on the day.
Sidney Crosby, Philadelphia’s favorite most hated athlete, had no points and was a -3 on the day.
The two teams finish off the home and home tomorrow in Pittsburgh at 12:30pm.
Stay tuned for a more in depth look at the weekend as a whole following tomorrow’s matinee.
