Penguins look to rebound vs. visiting Flyers

PITTSBURGH -- Ever since the shootout was instituted over a decade ago in the 2005-06 season, the Pittsburgh Penguins have been one of NHL's best teams at gaining the extra point. They are the league's all-time leaders in shootout wins with 72.

This season has been another matter as the Penguins are only 3-5 in shootouts. Their last two contests -- a 2-1 road loss to the Ottawa Senators on Thursday and a 4-3 home defeat to the New York Islanders on Friday -- have seen them fall in the shootout and fail to gain extra points at a time when they're duking it out with the Washington Capitals and Columbus Blue Jackets for first place in the Metropolitan Division as well as the top overall record in the NHL.

"It's always frustrating to lose the shootout," said Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury, third on the NHL's all-time goaltending shootout wins list with 53. "That's the way things are now, they're not going to change anything. Just got to bear with it and get those extra points when we get to overtime and shootout."
