Flyers @ Penguins 04/20/12 Game 5 Stanley Cup Playoffs

In a departure from the previous 4 games this was a real defensive battle (so to speak) and again when the Pens give the flyers a PowerPlay they scored...but finally on the 3rd PP chance the stopped them and this seemed to give the Pens a lift. The Flyers didnt make it easy but Fluery flashed some pads in the third and kept the one goal lead.
