The Ground Hog’s Day of failing to win at the Spectrum, which had been the Pittsburgh Penguins’ ordeal for 15 years, ends. The Penguins win a road game in Philadelphia for the first time since January 20, 1974, defeating the Flyers 5-3. Over the 15 years, the Penguins went winless in 42 games at the Spectrum, losing 39 with three ties. Pittsburgh gets goals from five different players, with Marion Lemieux having a pair of assists.
