*Analysis and Locker Room Reactions from Bylsma, Crosby, Staal, Lovejoy, Adams, Malkin, Jagr, Couturier, Giroux & Laviolette*
PITTSBURGH -- The Philadelphia Flyers were able to do something the Penguins haven't been able to do through two games; close out a game when holding a lead.
After Jaromir Jagr put the Flyers up 6-5 with 10:47 remaining in the game, the Flyers locked down defensively, making things difficult on the Penguins to mount a comeback and force overtime.
"They stacked three across the blueline there real effectively and made it tough to get through with the puck, " head coach Dan Bylsma said.
"They trap well, " center Jordan Staal said. "we had tough time getting through neutral zone, and around the net they did a good job boxing us out, " he said.
Frustrations once again were in the Penguins locker room regarding the failure to play with a lead.
