Outhustled, out of luck; Penguins lose to Flyers, 4-3, in shootout

PITTSBURGH — This story originally appeared on pittsburghhockeynow.com.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have gotten more goals from their No. 1 goaltender than they have from their power play during the past 10 games.

That’s not the only reason they continue to bob along around .500 — they’re 11-10-2 after a 4-3 shootout loss to Philadelphia Saturday night at PPG Paints Arena — but it’s a pretty significant one.

They were 0-for-5 with the extra man against the Flyers, including a chance in the final minute of overtime, running their drought over the past 10 games to 0-for-26.

Even worse, the Flyers erased a 2-1 Penguins lead in the third period by scoring a shorthanded goal.
