GAME RECAP

Alexandre Daigle scored his first goal in 22 games with 57 seconds left in overtime to lift the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins in the finale of their home-and-home series.

After Pittsburgh turned the puck over in the Flyers zone, Rod Brind'Amour sent a lead pass to Daigle, who was heading over the Penguins blue line. Daigle outraced Pittsburgh defenseman Brad Werenka and lifted a wrist shot over goaltender Ken Wregget's stick side as he was falling down in the slot. It was Daigle's eighth goal of the season and first in 16 games with the Flyers, who acquired him from Ottawa.

"We got a good break there, it was a nice pass and I ended up on a breakaway," Daigle said. "I think (Werenka) tried to get the puck and and it was the follow through of his stick. I was close enought to get the shot off. I didn't know it was in, I heard everybody yell and figured that was a good thing. I was very anxious to score that goal, obviously it took 15 games and I had a lot of assists but that's not the same."

"The puck was ahead, I was just trying to come out and put my body in front of it," Wregget said. "How many times do you see a chip shot go up top corner? I would have liked to have done it differently, hindsight being 20/20. But he made a hell of an effort to get the game-winning goal."

The Penguins sent the game into overtime when Jaromir Jagr scored his 29th goal with 15 seconds left in regulation. Wregget headed to the bench for a second time and Ron Francis dumped the puck over the right point into the Flyers zone. Kevin Hatcher sent the puck back around behind the Philadelphia net from the left corner. Francis angled his stick against the boards and deflected the puck to Jagr, who streaked down from the right faceoff circle and jammed it just inside the right goalpost from for his second goal in as many games.

The Flyers had taken a 3-2 lead 46 seconds left, when Shjon Podein, laying face-down in the right side of the crease, swiped in a loose puck.

Pittsburgh lost for just the third time in 17 games (8-3-6), and its league-best record in one-goal games dropped to 10-4.

Penguins defenseman Darius Kasparaitis was the target of several hits and was baited into a fight by Flyers left wing Colin Forbes in the first period. Kasparaitis delivered a body check to Philadelphia All-Star center Eric Lindros in the Penguins 6-4 win on Saturday, leaving the Flyers captain sidelined indefinitely with a grade two concussion.

"We were ready to play a tough, physical game," Kasparaitis said. "We stayed in the game. We got a couple of bad breaks, but we played a pretty solid game. It's too bad we weren't able to get the game. I knew they were going to come after me. I just had to be careful and that's what I did."

The Flyers had a power play 4:31 into the game when Mike Sillinger scored his 14th goal to make it 1-0. Sillinger was in the slot when he took a pass from Rod Brind'Amour and put a wrist shot by Wregget's pad. Pittsburgh had a chance to tie the game with 4:16 left in the first but Hextall made a pad save on Stu Barnes' penalty shot.

Werenka's third goal made it 1-1 at 3:29 of the second. The Penguins had a power play and Werenka beat Hextall with a slap shot from the right point.

John LeClair's 39th goal gave the Flyers a 2-1 edge at 8:11 of the second. Martin Straka's 12th goal tied it just 63 seconds later.
