By The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH (AP) ' Steve Sullivan, Jordan Staal and Tyler Kennedy scored and the Pittsburgh Penguins fended off elimination with a 3-2 comeback victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series.

Marc-Andre Fleury made 24 saves ' including a series of big stops in the third period ' to help Pittsburgh cut Philadelphia's lead to 3-2 in the best-of-seven series.

Game 6 is Sunday in Philadelphia.



Matt Carle and Scott Hartnell scored power-play goals in the first period for Philadelphia, but the Flyers failed to close out Pittsburgh for the second straight game.

Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 20 shots.

Following four wild games that featured a record 45 goals, the teams played something more closely resembling playoff hockey.
