Pens dominated for the first 10 minutes. Flyers got their legs under them after the timeout and Fleury made a couple really huge saves. Then Penguins get a backbreaking goal with 30 seconds left. What a period.

Is Ilya done?

Great hitting and physical play by the Pens. Timely arrogance also.

Yes. Some great skating and relentless puck pressure. There was a little lull for about 5mins after the 2-0 lead, but the Pens kicked it right back up as the period was winding down and the flyers looked a little overmatched. The speed of the 1st period isn't anything like how the flyers want to play this series.

It's a treat to watch Staal play physical. When he wants he can be such a physical force....

Wouldn't be surprised to see Babrovsky in to start the 2nd...
