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 - With the Flyers protecting a one-goal lead in the final frantic seconds Sunday afternoon, goalie Steve Mason tried desperately to scramble back into position as Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby came crashing toward the net and put a shot off the right post. "I think that's all I gave him," Mason cracked after the Flyers escaped with a 4-3 victory at the Consol Energy Center, completing a weekend sweep of the injury-ravaged Penguins. Mason kidded that the post was "part of the equipment.

Unlike most Flyers-Penguins games, Saturday afternoon's matchup was devoid of any drama. The Flyers weren't complaining. They dominated from the opening faceoff and coasted to a 4-0 victory over their archrivals in front of a loud, sellout crowd at the Wells Fargo Center. Matt Read scored two goals, Sean Couturier shut down Sidney Crosby, and Steve Mason collected his fourth shutout of the season as the Flyers remained in fourth place in the Metropolitan Division. "Some games, there's ups and downs," Vinny Lecavalier said after notching his 15th goal, "but I felt we played with the momentum for 60 minutes.

Some of Pittsburgh's best players were missing Saturday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center, but eight minutes into the first period, it was the Flyers who were shorthanded after defenseman Andrew MacDonald was sent to the penalty box for cross-checking. The Penguins still were "really dangerous," according to Flyers center Sean Couturier, because Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin were not among the missing, and they are "two of the best players in the league and the world. " Even though it was early in the game, this was a potential turning point in the first half of a weekend showdown between the two Pennsylvania hockey teams that love to hate each other.

At 42, ageless right winger Jaromir Jagr is showing no signs of slowing down. Fact is, he has been the New Jersey Devils' top forward this season. Jagr will face his former Flyers teammates Tuesday in a key Metropolitan Division matchup at the Wells Fargo Center. "He protects the puck really well and you just have to keep him on the outside," Flyers defenseman Mark Streit said after Monday's practice in Voorhees. Older players like Jagr, Streit said, "take care of their bodies and live a good lifestyle, and it makes a difference.

SINCE STEVE DOWNIE landed back in Philadelphia on Halloween in a trade for Max Talbot, he has played in virtually every role the Flyers have to offer. He has skated with Claude Giroux on the first line. He has shuffled through the third and fourth lines. He has played 9 minutes in some games and 18 minutes in others. One game, Downie is asked to play a shutdown role, another as a contributing scoring winger. He has spent 2 nights in a hospital nursing a vicious concussion, and has played through a forearm injury that decreased his productivity.

The night will be remembered for an all-out, first-period brawl that had the fans on their feet and blood dripping off some of the players' jerseys. It should be remembered for another Claude Giroux showstopper. Giroux scored two goals and added an assist as the surging Flyers outlasted Washington, 6-4, at the Wells Fargo Center and registered their seventh win in their last eight games. That gave Giroux consecutive three-point games in wins over the Capitals, including Sunday's 5-4 comeback victory in Washington.

Frustrated, New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist slammed his stick to the ice late in Saturday afternoon's intense, entertaining matchup against the Flyers. Seconds earlier, defenseman Luke Schenn had slammed away the Rangers' comeback hopes, scoring on a rebound with 3 minutes, 45 seconds left to close out the Flyers' 4-2 victory at the sold-out Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers, rebounding from a 7-3 loss to San Jose two nights earlier, notched their fifth win in their last six games.

Despite being in and out of the lineup all season, Flyers defenseman Andrej Meszaros has done a creditable job. Saturday was more of the same. Meszaros played solidly as the Flyers outlasted visiting Calgary, 2-1. He had an assist, blocked three shots, and was plus-2 in 21 minutes, 24 seconds before heading home and packing for Sochi, Russia, where he will compete for Slovakia in the Olympics. "I think he's improved throughout the year," said coach Craig Berube, who had been critical of Meszaros' defensive play a few weeks ago. ". . .

The Flyers, playing with the same sense of urgency they displayed on their successful West Coast trip, won their third straight game Thursday night behind Steve Mason's 38-save performance. Mason continued his outstanding play, and Mark Streit and rookie Michael Raffl scored goals for the second straight game as the Flyers defeated Colorado, 3-1, at the Wells Fargo Center. "The saves he made tonight were pretty impressive, especially at the end there with two minutes left, when he came across and made that save," said Claude Giroux, who iced the victory by depositing an empty-net goal with 19.8 seconds left.
