Flyers Vs. Penguins, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 6: Philadelphia Holds 4-1 Lead After Two Periods

The Philadelphia Flyers appear to have finally put a stranglehold on the Pittsburgh Penguins, as they now hold a 4-1 lead after two periods in Game 6.

The Flyers, who led 2-0 after one period, saw their lead grow to 3-0 with another early goal when Erik Gustafsson ripped a shot past Marc-Andre Fleury at the 5:25 mark of the period.

The Penguins finally had an answer when Evgeni Malkin scored a crucial power play goal at the 8:34 mark.

But just as they have all series, the Flyers had a quick answer, as this Danny Briere goal just 1:26 later gave the Flyers the momentum back, and a 4-1 lead.

The Penguins, on the brink of elimination, have looked lost in the defensive end all afternoon. Although the Flyers have outshot the Penguins by only a slim margin of 20-19, the Penguins have never been able to get into a rhythm in the attacking zone.
