PITTSBURGH - In the not-too-distant past, the Flyers used to own the Pittsburgh Penguins. Times have changed. The streaking Penguins continued their domination of the Flyers this season with a 6-2 victory Sunday at the Consol Energy Center. Pittsburgh, which ended an eight-game losing streak in the series earlier this year, has won all three meetings against its bitter rivals this season, outscoring the Flyers, 14-6, and outshooting them, 119-79. "Go home, Flyers!" the fans chanted late in the mismatch.

The Flyers played a clunker at an inopportune time Saturday afternoon. In the latest in a long line of critical games, they lost 4-1 to the arch-rival Pittsburgh Penguins at the Wells Fargo Center. Pittsburgh played stifling defense and got goals from Trevor Daley, Carl Hagelin, Chris Kunitz, and Kris Letang (empty-netter) as it won its fifth straight and moved six points ahead of the Flyers. The Flyers, who were on an 8-1-1 run, did not collect a point for the first time in six games.

The Flyers are oozing with confidence. You can see it in their relentless play. You can feel it in their locker room. An 8-1-1 surge - including a showdown win over the Detroit Red Wings, and difficult victories in Tampa and Chicago - is the reason for the upbeat atmosphere. "It's nice coming to the rink and feeling good about ourselves . . . and seeing smiles on the guys' faces," winger Brayden Schenn said after scoring an important goal in Wednesday's clutch, 3-2 victory over the Blackhawks in Chicago.

Center Claude Giroux, who leads the Flyers with 29 points in 38 games, was named to his fourth NHL All-Star team on Wednesday. "It's a great honor," he said after an optional practice in Voorhees. "We have a lot of good players on this team, and to be the one going, there's a lot of pride and I'm pretty excited to go. " Someone asked Giroux if he had seen the all-star jerseys and told him the colors resemble those of the Flyers' archrivals, the Pittsburgh Penguins. "Oh, that's great," Giroux said sourly, sarcasm dripping The all-star tournament will be held in Nashville, Tenn., on Jan. 31. It will consist of three games played in a three-on-three format.

With four minutes remaining in the Flyers' final game against the rival Pittsburgh Penguins during another unfulfilled season, the Wells Fargo Center crowd started chants of "You can't beat us!" There has been little for Flyers fans to cheer about during the last month, but they found a worthy one Sunday. Even though the Flyers will finish the season this week with one of the NHL's worst records, they will at least have an undefeated mark against the Penguins. The Flyers finalized the four-game season sweep with a 4-1 victory in an Easter Sunday matinee that weakened Pittsburgh's postseason push.

PAUL HOLMGREN remembered the pitch. Sitting at the NHL draft table, scouts occasionally pipe up to management to advocate for a player in their region they feel strongly about who might still be available. It was scout Mark Greig, who primarily covers the Western Hockey League for the Flyers, touting left winger Taylor Leier with the 117th overall pick in the fourth round. Greig's message to Holmgren was clear. "This kid is going to find a way to play in the NHL," Holmgren recalled Greig saying.

PITTSBURGH - Special teams contributed mightily as the Flyers swept a home-and-home weekend series from the Pittsburgh Penguins. Pittsburgh took the league's best power-play (24.8 percent success) into Sunday, but went 0 for 4 with the extra man and allowed a shorthanded goal to Matt Read in the Flyers' 4-3 victory. In Saturday's 4-0 Flyers win, the Penguins were 0 for 5 and also surrendered a shorthanded score to Read. "I think Lappy did a great job of video scouting," said center Sean Couturier, referring to assistant coach Ian Laperriere, "and we were well-prepared.

PITTSBURGH - In the two games over the weekend, the Flyers' power play was 3-for-7 against the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Penguins' power play was 0-for-9 against the Flyers while allowing two shorthanded goals. Which explains a bunch. Wayne Simmonds scored twice on the power play in yesterday's 4-3 win at Consol Energy Center. Matt Read, for the second straight game, had a shorthanded goal. And if this one wasn't as lopsided as Saturday's 4-0 Flyers win in Philadelphia, it was another game when the special teams complemented a balanced effort from a team that believes its balance is its strength.

Glorious weather. Hundreds of adoring fans. A "Who's Who" of former Flyers among those paying tribute as the organization unveiled a statue of the late Fred Shero on Saturday morning outside Xfinity Live. Oh, and Ray Shero, who happens to be the general manager of the Flyers' most bitter enemy, taking some good-natured jabs from a rather influential heckler. Shero, the architect of the Pittsburgh Penguins' powerhouses, walked to the podium and talked about his father's remarkable coaching tenure in Philadelphia.
