From a juicy story standpoint, it would’ve been sexier if Sidney Crosby eviscerated the Philadelphia Flyers in the Pittsburgh Penguins’ 10-3 win. Crosby did fine to spite the Cowardly Lion Photoshoppers with three points, but Pittsburgh’s survival was based on a team effort. Here’s everyone who scored in the rout, in order of total points (goals being the tiebreaker, if you must know).

Jordan Staal: three goals
Evgeni Malkin: two goals, one assist
Crosby: one goal, two assists
Steve Sullivan: one goal, two assists
Matt Niskanen: one goal, one assist
Pascal Dupuis: one goal, one assist
Chris Kunitz: two assists
Matt Cooke: two assists
Tyler Kennedy: two assists
Kris Letang: one goal
Deryk Engelland: one assist
Eric Tangradi: one assist
Richard Park: one assist

Here’s the much-more-select list of players who failed to score a single point: Zbynek Michalek, Brian Strait, Brooks Orpik, Joe Vitale and Simon Despres.

Yup, everyone got in on this game. It also seems like the kind of material for a sassy T-shirt, doesn’t it?

    You left out Fleury’s assist.

    Don’t forget Fleury’s assist on Sullivan’s powerplay goal to make it 7-3

    Flyers fan here. I have nothing. Penguins were incredile last night, Flyers were atrocious. Guess we got what we deserved with that stupid news paper cover and assuming our stuff didn’t stink. Time for us to pull our heads out of our butts and prepare for game 5 with a rejuvenated Pens Squad. This starnge strange series continues so I guess were all lucky. This is the most incredble series I can remember.

    Oh, and let us gingerly touch tips.
