Flyers beat Penguins 6-3

Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) โ€” Joel Farabee had a goal and three assists, Michael Raffl, James van Riemsdyk and Nolan Patrick also scored to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 6-3 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday in the first game of the NHL season.

The unconventional opener was decided when Raffl scored from the slot and beat Tristan Jarry 5:37 into the third for a 4-3 lead and the only cheers for the go-ahead goal came from Flyers fans watching at home.

The Flyers pounced from there -- Travis Konecny and Kevin Hayes scored 20 seconds apart to turn this one into a rout.

Mark Jankowski and Sidney Crosby scored for the Penguins.
The two teams will meet again in Philadelphia Friday night. The Pens will play their home opener Sunday vs. Washington.
