Strange comfort: Flyers win again in Pittsburgh

The Philadelphia Flyers seem to enjoy playing at CONSOL Energy Center.

After falling behind by a pair of goals early, the Flyers responded with five consecutive goals and took a critical 6-4 victory over the Penguins on Sunday.

The Flyers improved to 5-0-0 at the Pens' new home rink since the building opened in October of 2010.

Claude Giroux finished with a goal and two assists, Jakub Voracek had two goals and an assist, former Penguin Max Talbot scored and added a helper, while Wayne Simmonds and Marc-Andre Bourdon also lit the lamp for Philadelphia, which bounced back from a 4-3 shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators on Saturday.

Sergei Bobrovsky posted 43 stops in the win.

With the victory, the Flyers pulled to within one point of the Pens for fourth place -- and home-ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs -- in the Eastern Conference.

Steve Sullivan scored twice, Chris Kunitz had a goal and an assist and James Neal added a tally for the Penguins, who have lost three of their last four.

Marc-Andre Fleury was tagged for five goals on 25 shots in the loss.
