Bill Barber scored two goals and an assist and Darryl Sittler had two goals in Philadelphia last night as the Flyers beat the Pittsburgh Penguins, 8-1, to establish a club-record 10 straight victories.
The Flyers had won nine straight during their unprecedented 35-game unbeaten streak in 1979-80.
Barber gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead at 3:07 of the first period when he slipped a rebound under the pads of goalie Roberto Romano, who was just recalled from the Baltimore Skipjacks of the American Hockey League.
Less than three minutes later, at 5:46, Barber passed cross-ice to Sittler, who beat Romano from about eight feet on the glove side.
Barber later scored a second goal for his 801st NHL point, with 387 goals and 414 assists. Sittler's goals brought him within three points of his 1,000th point.
Pittsburgh made it 2-1 at 14:16 of the first period, when Dave Hannan tipped a pass past rookie goaltender Bob Froese.
It was the second victory in two starts for Froese, who was recalled last Friday from the AHL Maine Mariners after Pelle Lindbergh was sidelined with a wrist injury expected to keep him out at least three weeks.
