The Pittsburgh Penguins-Philadelphia Flyers game today doesn’t have a whole lot on the line – at least from a playoff standpoint. There’s plenty of hate and a little bit of history to go around, though.
(Something tells me he might have to answer the bell again, but we shall see.)
As far as history goes, a Penguins player did something big, yet it wasn’t one you might expect. Pascal Dupuis collected a point in his NHL season-high 17th consecutive game. Liam McHugh points out that Dupuis became the third Pittsburgh player (Sidney Crosby and Mario Lemieux) to score 17 in a row in the last 20 years.
Oh, and just moments ago, Evgeni Malkin scored his 50th goal of the season (a first for the Russian star).This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
