The Flyers continued their turnaround Wednesday night in a place where they have surprisingly achieved their share of success.

Brayden Schenn scored twice for the Flyers as they pulled out a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins at the CONSOL Energy Center.

Since the arena was built, the Flyers are 7-1-1 there.

Slowly, the Flyers (7-10-1) are creeping back to respectability, having won three in a row for the first time this season. The Pens, meanwhile, are 11-7 and remain a Stanley Cup contender in everyone's minds.

Pittsburgh had a goal disallowed after a video review just 19 seconds into the game. It was ruled that Chris Kunitz had kicked the puck into the net while following his own rebound. According to Rule 49.2, "a goal can't be scored by an attacking player who uses a distinct kicking motion to propel the puck into the net."

Pittsburgh kept applying early pressure and defenseman Robert Bortuzzo hit the post on a slap shot before the game was three minutes old. Flyers goalie Ray Emery (30 saves) never saw the shot.

For the early part of the first period, Pittsburgh had the Flyers on their heels, but slowly the Flyers settled down.

The Flyers took a 1-0 lead on a shot from the left circle by Schenn with 3 minutes, 58 seconds left in the first period.

Wayne Simmonds went into the corner and stole the puck from Bortuzzo. Simmonds then fed Schenn, who deposited his fifth goal of the season.

""I came off the bench and Simmer went hard on the forecheck and won his battle," Schenn said. "I went to the slot and he made a nice pass to me and it was fortunate enough to go in."

Schenn felt the Flyers were lucky to bounce back from a rocky start, especially that first Penguins shift that included the disallowed goal.

"We had a tough start to the period. We got lucky on the very first shift," Schenn said.

Despite being outshot, 16-8, and outplayed, the Flyers led by 1-0 after the first period.

The Penguins tied the score on a power-play goal when Sidney Crosby tapped in a cross-ice pass from Evgeni Malkin with 11:31 left in the second period.

It was the ninth goal for Crosby, who later in the period was stoned by Emery on a breakaway.
