Flyers 5 - Penguins 4: Crosby's Christmas Three not Enough

Sidney Crosby's last game before the Christmas break was a good one, but the Penguinos still lost to the evil Flyers by a 5-4 score.

Sir Sid had 2 goals and 1 assist, +3, 6 shots on goal, and won a respectable 12 of 25 faceoffs in 20:55 of ice time.

Maybe Santa will bring the Penguins some real wins in the new year?

The Pittsburgh Penguins overcame a 3-0 deficit, but the Philadelphia Flyers pulled out a 5-4 win Friday night at Mellon Arena.

The Penguins (8-19-7) scored four-straight goals late in the second period and early in the third, but the Flyers (21-8-5) responded with two tallies 1:09 apart.

“We were right there. The first period, we didn’t give ourselves the chance to really compete,” Penguins rookie Sidney Crosby said. “The second two [periods], we were right there and I thought we carried most of the play. We can’t afford to have lapses like that or make mistakes like that. We’ve said it before, we have to play 60 minutes and play more sound. We made a couple of mistakes and they buried them.”

Have a happy and safe whatever-the-heck-you-celebrate!
