Flyers beat Penguins to force Game 6

Flyers stay alive with second win Flyers beat Penguins to force Game 6

The second is a nod to Crosby's playoff excellence.

Can Flyers Pull Off Comeback to Win Series?

Sean Couturier's long shot from the point got past Matt Murray with 1:17 left and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-2 on Friday night to force a sixth game in the first-round series.

There was no need for change in Pittsburgh, which has developed a killer instinct under coach Mike Sullivan it lacked at times earlier in the Crosby/Evgeni Malkin era. Couturier's shot was a snipe from the blue line the went through the entire defense, and Matt Murray never found it. Michal Neuvirth then made an unbelievable save to maintain the lead for the Flyers, and an empty netter from Matt Read on Valterri Filppula's assist (his third point of the game) at 19:42 sealed the 4-2 win. The Penguins won 5-0. "I thought we did some really good things [Friday] and we have to clean up some other things, but overall, I think we played a decent game".

Sullivan downplays his role in it, preferring to put the emphasis on his star-laden roster. "I think it starts with our core players".

"We got two big wins out on the road here".

Predators 3, at Avalanche 2: Filip Forsberg scored another creative goal, Pekka Rinne rebounded from a rocky performance with 31 saves, and the Nashville Predators withstood a furious rally by the Colorado Avalanche for a 3-2 win in Game 4 on Wednesday night to take a 3-1 lead in the first-round series. The cross-state rivals have engaged in what amounts to an outlier of sorts in the typically taut playoffs. All four games have been decided by at least four goals. ".We're going to go out there, play our game and be back for Game 6".

"It's been weird", Pittsburgh center Derick Brassard said.

There's a chance the Flyers could have Sean Couturier in the lineup. Couturier missed Game 4 after being injured in practice by Radko Gudas, and you could tell how badly the Flyers needed his presence on both ends of the ice.


Philadelphia got a boost from a returning player Friday.

With that in mind, let's look back at this fierce rivalry and remember some of its best games.

These archrivals have gone back and forth with one-sided victories in the first three games of the series. They got a power play shortly after.

Philadelphia handed the Penguins three power-play opportunities but held Pittsburgh scoreless and actually came out of the trio of situations with a goal to tie the score at 2-2.

With Stalock in, the scoring died down for a while-he robbed Scheifele with his blocker on a one-timer in the second-but the Jets alternate got his revenge in the third when he capped off a tic-tac-toe play set up by Blake Wheeler and Paul Statsny 32 seconds into the third. "We want to try and carry that momentum and the way we played into our own building".

The feisty Komarov, who suffered a lower-body injury in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference quarter-final and sat out Monday's Game 3, took to the ice for Thursday's optional morning skate at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Is Pittsburgh going to close it out in Game 5 with a third straight victory?

The Predators are 11-2 in Smashville since the start of the 2017 playoffs, a run that started by finishing off a sweep of Chicago in the first round a year ago.

"Obviously, they can draw on a great experience the last few years", Flyers defenseman Andrew MacDonald said.

"We know it's tough to end someone's season", said Penguins winger Jake Guentzel, whose team has outscored the Flyers by a 20-4 margin at the Wells Fargo Center this season. "Lucky bounce, but we'll take them". Crosby is still the most unsafe player in the league, Malkin has game-changing moves and shooting ability, while Kessel remains one of the top snipers in the game. "I was shocked. It feels good". "Hopefully it gives him a little confidence".
