Flyers Vs. Penguins Final Score: Philadelphia Completes The 4-3 Comeback Overtime Win To Take Game 1

The Pittsburgh Penguins jumped out to a 3-0 lead on the Philadelphia Flyers in the first period of the opening game of the playoff series between the two bitter rivals. The Flyers weren't just going to lay down and die in the first game of the playoff series and slowly battled back, eating at the Penguins lead. The Flyers picked up a goal in the second period and then two more in the third period, including a power play goal that sent the game into overtime.

By then, it was anyone's game and the Flyers had all of the momentum. That momentum carried into the overtime period as Jakub Voracek picked up the game-winning goal, completing the Flyers' come back.

Voracek jetted in from under the net and slapped the rebound into the net for the game-winning goal. The Flyers finished up their rally and now lead the series 1-0. The two teams will face off again on Friday in Game Two of the series.
