PITTSBURGH (Ticker) -- Sidney Crosby quickly is becoming a thorn in the side of the Philadelphia Flyers.

Crosby looks to continue his success against the Flyers on Saturday when the Pittsburgh Penguins welcome their intrastate rivals to the Mellon Arena.

The 18-year-old Crosby stole the show Wednesday when the Penguins recorded a 3-2 triumph over the Flyers. The rookie sensation scored two goals, including the game-winner on a breakaway with 46 seconds left in overtime, giving him three goals and two assists in two games against Philadelphia.

The Flyers followed that loss with a brutal 6-5 setback vs. Atlanta on Friday. The loss was the season-high third straight for Philadelphia, which led by two with less than two minutes left in regulation before surrendering a pair of tallies and the game-winner to Greg de Vries 3:05 into overtime.

Branko Radivojevic collected two goals and an assist and Simon Gagne added his 18th goal of the season for Philadelphia, which has not dropped four straight games since January 8-13, 2004.

Meanwhile, the Penguins have not played since their victory over the Flyers. Ryan Malone added a goal and an assist for Pittsburgh, which had lost three of its previous four games.
