- The Flyers struck first when Vinny Lecavalier came in on a two-on-one and found Wayne Simmonds. Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury stopped the first shot but Brayden Schenn put home the rebound just 2:06 into the game.
- Four and a half minutes later with the Flyers on the power play, Kimmo Timonen's blast from the point was redirected by Wayne Simmonds in front to put the Flyers up 2-0.
- They made it 3-0 seven minutes later on the power play when Simmonds got the puck in front and was originally denied by Fleury but pounded home the rebound.
- Fleury was pulled from the game following the third goal in favor of backup goaltender Jeff Zatkoff.
- With under two and a half minutes remaining in the first period, Brooks Orpik took a slap shot from the point that hit Wayne Simmonds and bounced off the ice and over Steve Mason's shoulder to make it 3-1.
- Pittsburgh cut it to 3-2 when Matt Niskanen's slapshot from the point in the second period beat a screened Mason.
- Six minutes later with the Penguins on the power play, Matt Read carried the puck on a two-on-one and fired a wrist shot over Zatkoff's shoulder for the eventual game-winning goal.
- It was Read's second shorthanded goal of the weekend giving him four on the season which pulls him into a tie for first in the NHL in shorthanded goals.
- Four minutes after Read's goal, Braydon Coburn had the puck get by him as Brian Gibbons skated in on a two-on-one and found Jayson Megna who beat Mason to make it 4-3.
- The last time the Flyers beat the Penguins in a home-and-home was in January 2006.
- The Flyers held Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby without a point this weekend.
- Philadelphia killed off all four Pittsburgh power plays today forcing the Penguins to go 0-for-9 on the power play this weekend.
- The Flyers went 2-for-3 on the man advantage today with Wayne Simmonds scoring both goals, his 10th and 11th power play goals of the season.
- The last time the Flyers won three consecutive games over the Penguins in the same regular season was in 2007-08.
- It was Claude Giroux's 400th NHL game and Andrew MacDonald's 300th.
