PITTSBURGH (AP) -Sidney Crosby set up three goals, goalie Marc-Andre Fleury played a strong game after allowing an early soft goal and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the rival Philadelphia Flyers 4-1 on Saturday, the final regular season game in Mellon Arena between the longtime rivals.

Pascal Dupuis, Chris Kunitz, Ruslan Fedotenko and Matt Cooke scored for the Penguins.

Scoring more than three goals for the first time in 10 games, the Stanley Cup champions ended a three-game losing streak and clinched a berth in the Eastern Conference playoffs for the fourth consecutive season.

The Flyers generated little offense after Aaron Asham's attempted pass was misplayed by Fleury into a goal 1:02 into the game, and they lost their fifth in a row and seventh in eight games.

BOSTON (AP) - Dennis Seidenberg, David Krejci and Zdeno Chara scored power-play goals, and Tim Thomas stopped 31 shots for Boston in his first shutout since Dec. 21.

Patrice Bergeron and Mark Recchi also scored for the Bruins. Boston won for just the third time in 15 home games and moved into a tie with Philadelphia for seventh in the East.

Calgary, in ninth place in the West, moved a step closer to playoff elimination, coming into the game six points behind both Colorado and Detroit.
