Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Evgeni Malkin picked up a goal and one
assist as the Pittsburgh Penguins sent the Philadelphia Flyers to a franchise-
worst start to a season by claiming a 4-1 decision on Thursday.
Even playing without top defenseman Kris Letang (knee) and key forward James
Neal (lower-body), four different players lit the lamp, including Sidney
Crosby, who increased his season-commencing point streak to seven games.
Chris Kunitz and Jussi Jokinen also tallied for the Penguins, the Metropolitan
Division leaders who improved to 6-1-0 on the year.
Pascal Dupuis added a pair of assists to back a 24-save effort from Marc-Andre
Steve Mason continued his solid play, making 31 stops for the Flyers, who fell
to 1-7-0 on the year -- one point worse than a 1-6-1 start to the 2006-07
Wayne Simmonds recorded the lone goal for Philadelphia, whose anemic offense
has produced 11 goals in eight contests.
