Midway through the 1st, though, the Penguins countered that pressure and capitalized on a lucky break with a goal up the other way from Phil Kessel, for his first of the series.

Sidney Crosby became the Pittsburgh Penguins' all-time leader in playoff points while helping them take a three-games-to-one lead in their first-round series. Behind a well-rounded performance by almost the entire roster, the Penguins drubbed their Keystone rivals 5-0 to build a 3-1 lead in this first-round best-of-seven series.

Game 5 of the series is set for Friday night in Pittsburgh at 7pm, if they Flyers win the series would return to Philly on Sunday.

So, Crosby should celebrate the assist on the Penguins' first-period power-play goal that served as Crosby's 172nd career playoff point, for it tied him with Lemieux for most in franchise history.

After a 7-0 Penguins rout in Game 1, it was tough to imagine how things could get worse for the Orange and Black.

Couturier suffered a lower-body injury in practice Tuesday after a collision with teammate Radko Gudas.

Game 4 started where Game 3 left off - with the Flyers (Matt Read) committing a penalty and the PK unit unable to stop the Penguins top-ranked power play offense. The Kris Letang goal (assisted by Jake Guentzel) brought Michal Neuvirth into his first playoff game of the year as Philadelphia tried to find a way to fight their way out of a very deep hole.

They still control the northwestern province of Idlib, near Turkey, and a southern region around Deraa, on the border with Jordan. Russia's envoy Nebenzia called on the United States , France and Britain "not to bring the world to such a unsafe threshold".

The Flyers had consecutive dominating shifts later in the period, swarming the net, keeping the puck in the Pittsburgh end, and firing shots at Murray. Couturier was third on the Flyers with 76 points during the regular season.

"Somehow, we need to get our confidence back and go from there", team captain Claude Giroux said.

Giroux, who scored 102 points during the season, has not scored a posteason goal since 2014.

Philadelphia coach Dave Hakstol dismissed it as nothing unusual, but it shows that the Penguins' dominance over the Flyers this season hasn't been limited to their stars.

At the time the Penguins had a 2-0 lead and cutting it to one could have swayed the momentum going forward, but Murray came up big - as he tends to do in the post season.

Another moment of finality in this game was with the Penguins leading 1-0 thanks to an early power play goal by Malkin. Be sure to check back the day after every game for a look Through the Lens of the team's latest game.

Riley Sheahan scored late in the third just to rub the Flyers nose in the dirt, ensuring a 5-0 Pittsburgh victory. He was stopped by Matt Murray, and they could have sent everybody home right there and then ...
