Evgeni Malkin added an insurance goal before the end of the second period to give the Penguins the 4-2 lead. Pittsburgh was able to hold off the Flyers rally in the third period and things got a bit chippy as Jody Shelley picked up a 10-minute misconduct penalty just two-minutes into the final period.
