Gagne and Hartnell score as Flyers beat Penguins 3-1 @NHL

PITTSBURGH - Simon Gagne and Scott Hartnell scored power-play goals, and the Philadelphia Flyers beat Pittsburgh 3-1 on Sunday for the Penguins' first loss in a month.

Philadelphia won its second in a row to open a two-point lead over Pittsburgh in the race for the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference and home-ice advantage in the first round.

Martin Biron made 27 saves, and Darroll Powe added an empty-net goal that Hartnell assisted on for the Flyers, who have three games in hand on the Penguins.

Kris Letang scored for Pittsburgh, which hadn't lost since Feb. 22 at Washington, had been 8-0-2 in its past 10 and lost in regulation for only the second time in 17 games under interim coach Dan Bylsma.
