Flyers Vs. Penguins Score: Pittsburgh Comes Out Hot, Leads 2-1 After One Period

The Pittsburgh Penguins exploded out the gate, scoring two goals in the first five minutes of the game and hold a 2-1 lead over the Philadelphia Flyers after one period.

Pittsburgh broke the scoring open just 1:14 into the game when Steve Sullivan scored his 16th goal of the season with the help of a fine assist from Sidney Crosby.

The Penguins saw their lead grow to 2-0 when James Neal scored his 39th goal of the season shortly after. The goal would not have been possible without a great assist from Evgeni Malkin.

The Flyers would show signs of life and get back into the game when Claude Giroux was able to squeak his 28th goal of the season past Penguin goalie Marc-Andre Fleury late in the first to make it 2-1.

The Penguins have controlled most of the game, holding a 16-8 advantage in shots. The Flyers have made the most of their few opportunities, as a couple of shots have rung off the posts and are very much in this game.
