Pens nip Flyers in OT, win 12th straight

Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Tyler Kennedy's marker with 2:27 remaining in overtime sent the Pittsburgh Penguins to their 12th straight win, courtesy of a 2-1 decision over Philadelphia at CONSOL Energy Center.

Kennedy cranked one home from the left circle, beating a screened Ilya Bryzgalov over his shoulder to the near post for the game winner, capping a rally from a late one-goal deficit.

Sidney Crosby also scored for the Penguins, who hung tough and did not let their in-state rivals play the role of streak buster for the second time in a little more than a year.

Pittsburgh had won 11 in a row until a Mar. 18, 2012 date in Philadelphia, but the Flyers' Scott Hartnell put an end to that run on his tally with less than a second remaining in OT to give the Flyers a 3-2 victory.

Marc-Andre Fleury made 27 saves for the hosts.
