Flyers play nice, do Pens a big favour

Briere and Crosby relax after a game

Ever the team to uphold the high morals of good sportsmanship, the Flyers won game four of the series, which now allows the Pengiuns to bask in the feel-good moment of winning the series on home ice.

Jeff Carter, Daniel Briere and Joffrey Lupul acted nice and scored first-period goals, hanging on for a 4-2 win Thursday night and forcing a fifth game in the Eastern Conference final. Jordan Staal had two third-period goals as the Penguins made things interesting but still lost for only the second time in the playoffs.
Lupul also added an empty netter while Martin Biron did his share for the Sunday's Pittsburgh ticket holders with a 36-save effort.

Pittsburgh will have another crack at clinching their first Cup berth in 16 years Sunday afternoon in the friendly confines of Mellon Arena, where the Penguins are a perfect 7-0 in the playoffs.
