The Pittsburgh Penguins are coming off a 5-2 win over the New Jersey Devils and make the quick trip to Philadelphia to take on in-state rival the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday afternoon. The Penguins have been making a run at first place in the Eastern Conference without star Sidney Crosby, but Crosby has recently returned to the lineup as the Penguins get ready to continue that push. With a win against the Flyers on Sunday, the Penguins can tie the franchise record for the second-longest winning streak at twelve games in a row.
The Flyers on the other hand will of course look to spoil that streak and welcome Crosby back to the league. The Flyers will also be looking for revenge from the two team's last meeting, which saw the Penguins pick up a 6-4 victory at home as the Penguins look to even up the season series between the two teams from Pennsylvania.
Game Time: Sunday, March 18, 2012, 12:30 p.m. ET
Location: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
