from Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

The uncharacteristically meek crowd at Wells Fargo Center saved most of their boos for Sidney Crosby, their favorite NHL player to hate.

But it was the Penguins’ other big guns who blasted them to Thursday’s 6-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers. Bryan Rust buried two more goals. Kris Letang dished out three assists. Jake Guentzel scored twice and has a point in 16 straight. Another strong showing from Tristan Jarry helped their early lead hold up.

The league’s hottest team has won 10 games in a row. This is the just fifth time in franchise history that the Penguins have had a winning streak that long.

“We’re still trying to get better, too,” Brian Boyle, the newcomer, said. “It’s a pretty high standard. … The people driving the bus, the leaders and how hard they work and what they demand of themselves, everybody kind of falls in line.”
