Flyers overcame early 3-goal deficit to stun Penguins 4-3

PITTSBURGH (AP) Philadelphia Flyers coach Alain Vigneault pointed to his team's three-game set in Pittsburgh as a potential turning point. A chance to figure out just where the Flyers are as the mid-point of a 56-game sprint approaches.

"There's a moment in a season where a team has a gut check," Vigneault said.

One the Flyers passed Thursday night, overcoming an early three-goal deficit to stun the Penguins 4-3. Claude Giroux scored his second goal of the night on a tap-in with 2:08 remaining to cap the comeback as Philadelphia handed Pittsburgh just its second loss at PPG Paints Arena this season.
