Afterward, Claude Giroux called it the worst loss in what’s been a disappointing season.

“Yeah, when you’re up 4-1, you gotta find a way to close the game up,” the Flyers captain said.

The Flyers built their big lead in a first period in which they outshot Pittsburgh 18-4, and in the process Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury sure looked rattled letting in a terrible goal before getting yanked.

“We talked after the first period that the Pittsburgh Penguins are not going to sit back and just hand over two points,” Hartnell said. “They were going to come back, and lo and behold, before we know it, it’s 4-4.

“We just can’t do that. It’s embarrassing to the fans. It’s embarrassing to one another and we let another two points slip away.”
