Game Three-- Penguins and Flyers, April 15, 2012

Down two games and suffering some serious deficits in Goals Against, the Penguins head into hostile territory to try and claw their way back into their series with the Flyers.

Pittsburgh has struggled to hold leads and provided the Flyers with no shortage of momentum through the first two games, their key assignment for Sunday, turn that theme around and take back one of their home ice losses.

For the Flyers, it would seem that it's more of a case of keeping the pressure on their inter-state rivals, knocking them off their game and off the score sheet.
