Game Story

PITTSBURGH (Ticker) -- The Pittsburgh Penguins' All-Stars excelled. The Philadelphia Flyers' All-Star floundered.

Alexei Kovalev recorded his second hat trick of the season and a career-best five points and fellow All-Star Jaromir Jagr added two goals and two assists as the Penguins chased Roman Cechmanek en route to a 9-4 whipping of the Flyers.

Kovalev had a goal and an assist Sunday in his first All-Star appearance. He carried that momentum into this game, opening the scoring 28 seconds into the first period. Pittsburgh built a 3-0 lead, but Philadelphia tied it before the end of the period.

Kovalev struck again 61 seconds into the second period and Jagr tallied 38 seconds later to send the Penguins on their way. Jagr and All-Star Mario Lemieux added power-play goals 1:46 apart and Martin Straka's breakaway tally capped Pittsburgh's five-goal period.

Kovalev completed his fourth career hat trick with 7:29 to go in the final period, reaching the 30-goal mark for the first time.

"That's what happens when you make the shots," Kovalev said. "You can't pass up those kinds of opportunities. I'm just glad they went into the net."

"Kovalev has always had the talent," added Lemieux. "It's good to see him shooting more and getting results."

Cechmanek, who surrendered six goals in the second period in his All-Star debut, yielded six on 20 shots before he was replaced by Brian Boucher after 27 minutes, 19 seconds.

"In a game like this, you can't blame the goaltender," Flyers coach Bill Barber said. "There were just too many opportunities."

Kent Manderville ended a 122-game goal-scoring drought, but the Flyers lost for the second time in as many nights.

"Ouch," Barber said. "We let them play their game. They had a ton of success against us tonight. I think we tried to play a little their way and we can't compete in games like this. We turned the puck over so many times, I don't think I can count that high. Right now, we have to find a way to regroup by Friday."

Robert Lang and Janne Laukkanen each had three assists for the Penguins, who avenged a 5-1 home loss to Philadelphia on January 31 and have won five of their last six games. Pittsburgh climbed within four points of second-place Philadelphia in the Atlantic Division.

"This is the kind of game that shows us what we can do," said Lemieux, who has 17 goals and 17 assists in 17 games since ending a 3 1/2-year retirement. "It's good to have as much depth as possible."

After Kovalev opened the scoring, Rene Corbet doubled the Penguins' lead 84 seconds later and former Flyer Kevin Stevens made it 3-0 at 3:54.

But Rick Tocchet scored off a rebound against his former team and Manderville and Mark Recchi tallied 87 seconds apart late in the period to forge a 3-3 deadlock.

"I told the team after the first, `Forget the last 10 minutes,'" Pittsburgh coach Ivan Hlinka said. "We came out and played like we did (in the first). It was our best game. We were prepared for a physical game, we just had to play our game."

Kovalev took a drop pass from Straka and beat Cechmanek with a wrist shot from the slot to put the Pens in front for good just over a minute into the second. On the next shift, Jagr chipped his own rebound past Cechmanek for his 30th goal.

Philadelphia rookie Todd Fedoruk was in the penalty box when Cechmanek got his right pad on Lemieux's shot from the left side. Lang pushed the rebound to Jagr, who scored from the right goalpost.

Flyers defenseman Chris McAllister went off for holding at 7:19 and Lemieux's one-timer from the left faceoff circle trickled past Boucher 83 seconds later to make it 7-3.

Less than two minutes later, Pittsburgh enforcer Krzysztof Oliwa tangled with Fedoruk, whose hard hit last month kept Jagr out of the All-Star Game.

"We had to establish ourselves against these guys tonight. They're a team we're going to face in the playoffs," Stevens said. "You had to let them understand what they will face."

Jean-Sebastien Aubin stopped 12 of 13 shots over the final two periods after former Flyer Garth Snow aggravated a groin injury.
