Feb. 18, 2012 at 4:56 PM

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- Matt Cooke amassed a three-point game with a pair of goals and a key assist Saturday in the Pittsburgh Penguins' 6-4 victory over slumping Philadelphia.

Both of Cooke's goals were unassisted -- including a shorthanded tally -- and he also set up Dustin Jeffrey's go-ahead marker early in the third period as Pittsburgh logged its third win in four contests.

James Neal and Pascal Dupuis also scored in the final frame while Jordan Staal added another shorthanded goal and an assist as Pittsburgh snapped a three-game losing streak against the Flyers.

Marc-Andre Fleury improved to 30-14-3 on the season, making 27 saves.

Philadelphia dropped its sixth game in eight tries despite Jaromir Jagr's two goals in an 18-second span.

Ilya Bryzgalov started in net for the Flyers but exited after yielding three Pittsburgh goals on 13 shots.

Sergei Bobrovsky relieved and posted 14 saves.
