Chris Kunitz and Beau Bennett notched goals for the Penguins in the second and third respectively to give the Penguins a 2-1 lead. Chris VandeVelde evened it up 2-2 after a no-look redirection of Michael Del Zotto's shot from the top of the zone.
With a little over a minute left in OT and after a Penguins penalty for too many men on the ice, Jakub Voracek got a shot on goal that Greiss tried to control for what seemed like an eternity. After fumbling with it though it fell to the crease where Giroux was able to sneak in a tap it the puck in for the game winner.
Now for those four fights in the second period. Here was your card. Michael Raffl vs. Zach Sill in the special pre-show contest. The midcard matches were Jakub Voracek squashing Rob Scuderi and Luke Schenn earning the decision over former Flyers Steve Downie. The main even though was Pierre Edouard-Bellemare vs. Bobby Farnham. Kudos to Pebbles for joining in on the spirit of the cross-state rivalry and delivering one hell of a right-hand to Farnham's jaw.
According to our friends at hockeyfights.com the Flyers went 3-1 tonight in their fights. Raffl taking the only L, but still throwing some solid punches either way.
So there you have it. Flyers win the game 3-2, the fights 3-1 and still own Pennsylvania. And if any Penguin fans wanna throw it back to the amount of Stanley Cups, just remember we bought that third one for you with our tax dollars.
