NHL GAME OF THE DAY

Penguins win fight-marred game with Flyers, 6-1

Pittsburgh and Philadelphia engage in three fights in 16 seconds in opening period.

December 16, 2009

Pittsburgh — Jordan Staal scored twice and Sidney Crosby's goal and assist early in the first period amid a succession of fights lifted the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 6-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night in a feisty renewal of an intensifying rivalry.

Crosby scored a power-play goal 3 minutes 30 seconds in -- and before a flurry of three fights in 16 seconds -- and set up Bill Guerin's goal about 2 1/2 minutes later, immediately after the first round of pushing, shoving and punching.
