Flyers Vs. Penguins, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 4: Jordan Staal Picks Up Hat Trick As Pens Take

The Pittsburgh Penguins picked up a 4-3 lead near the end of the first period in a period that was a torrent of goals. The rush of goals didn't end there and continued in the second period. The Penguins added to their lead with a power-play goal by Kris Letang to push the score to 5-3.

The Penguins obviously wanted redemption for their 8-4 loss to the Flyers in Game 3, so they continued to attack and pour on the goals. Jordan Staal picked up his second goal of the game on a power-play goal which was followed up by another power-play goal by Steve Sullivan. With the three goals in the second period, it pushed the Penguins lead to 7-4.

Pittsburgh continued to pour on the goals, adding two more to push the score to 9-4 including Jordan Staal picking up a hat trick with his third goal of the night and the second of the period.

The game has gotten out of hand as the Flyers have 40 penalty minutes so far in the game. The exact number of minutes played thus far.
