Covers Preview - The Pittsburgh Penguins attempt to cap a three-game homestand with a winning mark when they face the Keystone State-rival Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday. The Penguins suffered their lone loss of the young season with a last-second setback to Dallas on Thursday before rebounding with a 3-1 triumph over the New York Islanders two nights later. Pittsburgh's potent power play continued to pay dividends with two goals versus the Islanders to improve to 8-for-17 in four games this season.
