Evgeni Malkin added an empty-net goal in the final seconds.

The Penguins were the latest team to beat the Eastern Conference-worst Flyers. Off to their worst start after eight games, the Flyers are 1-7 and mired in last place in the conference.

The Penguins outplayed them from the opening faceoff, and nearly doubled the Flyers in shots through two periods.

Jokinen and Kunitz both scored in the second, and Marc-Andre Fleury made it stand with 24 saves.

Wayne Simmonds had the lone goal for the Flyers, who have yet to score more than two in a game this season.

Crosby, who has 29 career goals against the Flyers, has a seven-game point streak to start the season.
