NHL.com @NHL

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Brayden Schenn scored twice, Vincent Lecavalier added his first goal in nearly three months, and the Philadelphia Flyers had little trouble with the injury-depleted Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1 on Wednesday night.

Carlo Colaiacovo chipped in a rare goal for the Flyers, who ended a nine-game, road-losing streak. Steve Mason stopped 24 shots for Philadelphia as the Flyers won their seventh straight game in Pittsburgh.

Sidney Crosby scored his 300th career goal for the Penguins and boosted his NHL-leading point total to 80, but Pittsburgh mustered little offence on a night the team played without injured stars Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang.

Marc-Andre Fleury made 27 saves for the Penguins, who remained tied with the New York Islanders for second place in the Metropolitan Division.
