Pittsburgh Penguins at Philadelphia Flyers

Pittsburgh Penguins Preview

The Pittsburgh Penguins aim for their seventh win in eight outings on Tuesday when they visit the Philadelphia Flyers. Sidney Crosby and company flustered the Flyers in their first encounter this season, with the superstar captain scoring a goal and setting up two others in a 7-1 romp on Oct. 29. That’s just business as usual for Crosby, who has recorded a staggering 102 points (42 goals, 60 assists) in 68 career meetings with Philadelphia.

The 32-year-old veteran has picked up where he left off following a 28-game absence caused by a core muscle injury, boosting his point total to eight (three goals, five assists) in four games after setting up a pair of tallies in Pittsburgh’s 4-3 comeback win over Boston on Sunday afternoon.

Philadelphia Flyers Preview

The Philadelphia Flyers look to avenge a porous early-season performance against their Keystone State rivals on Tuesday when they host the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Flyers surrendered four first-period goals en route to dropping a 7-1 decision to the Penguins on Oct. 29, a result that Sean Couturier aptly labeled as “embarrassing.”

Philadelphia has won four of its past six games, highlighted by victories over top-tier teams Washington, Boston and St. Louis before breezing to a convincing 4-1 victory over Los Angeles on Saturday. Travis Konecny boosted his team-leading goal total to 17 by scoring twice against the Kings as the Flyers improved to 16-4-4 at home.
