The Pittsburgh Penguins offense tonight was firing on all cylinders as they chased starting goalie Ilya Bryzgalov en route to a 10-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.  The win keeps the Penguins in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series as they’re now down 3 games to 1.

“I think we got embarrassed in front of our fans,” said Flyers center Claude Giroux told NHL.com, who scored his fifth goal of the series. “I think guys kind of forgot they’ve got two of the best players in the world on the other side. Maybe we thought it would be easy in front of our fans. We’re not happy about it.”

Penguin C Jordan Staal had a hat-trick and a plus/minus of 2. Evgeni Malkin also scored 2 goals for the Pens.

Flyers starting goalie Bryzgalov only played 23 minutes as he gave up 5 goals and put the Flyers into a huge hole, down 5-3 barely into the 2nd Period.

The 10 minute misconduct penalties also continued to mount for both teams in Game 4 as they continue a very chippy, aggressive brand of play.  Flyer Zac Rinaldo was ejected at the 16:43 mark of the 2nd period with a 10 minute Misconduct and a Game Misconduct.  Then four players, two from each team, were given 10 minute Misconduct penalties at the 8:48 mark of the 3rd period.  They were Matt Cooke and Joe Vitale for the Pens and Pavel Kubina and Wayne Simmonds for the Flyers.
