Carter Rowney and Patric Hornqvist each score as Penguins take a three-point lead of second place in the Eastern Conference standings with just three games remaining.

Jakub Voracek and Dale Weise sparked Philadelphia's four-goal third period and the Flyers finished a four-game road trip with a 6-2 win against the rival Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday night.

John Tavares and Anthony Beauvillier scored in the shootout to lead the New York Islanders over the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 in the NHL on Friday night.

Though sometimes they don’t always win.
