Mark Streit’s backhanded shot from the right circle caromed between Marc-Andre Fleury’s pads 2:10 into overtime as the Flyers beat the Penguins 4-3 on Saturday to assure themselves of a first-round matchup with the Metropolitan Division-rival New York Rangers.

Streit’s 10th goal of the season was the game-winner.

"It was another big game, it’s always a big rivalry," Streit said of the Penguins. "It got heated at the end, a lot of emotions. We wanted that third spot and we got it."

Jakub Voracek scored twice for the Flyers, and Claude Giroux added his team-high 28th goal of the season. Ray Emery made 12 saves after replacing injured starter Steve Mason to begin the third period.

Mason was held out as a precaution after getting bowled over late in the second period when Pittsburgh’s Jayson Megna failed to put on the brakes while streaking to the net.

Flyers coach Craig Berube expects Mason to be fine, though the play turned an atypically sleepy meeting between the two clubs into something decidedly more lively.
