  • Penguins and Flyers Square Off Sunday in Game Six

He was injured in practice on Tuesday, and missed Game 4 on Wednesday night, but fought through the pain and played in Game 5 and Game 6 with an undisclosed injury.

Provorov played Game 6 despite an injury to his left shoulder that limited his effectiveness. Sean Couturier was the Flyers best player as he had a hat trick and two assists in their game six loss and also had the game-winning goal in game five just to get it to game six. And again with under a minute left in the second, when a pair of disgusting Radko Gudas turnovers in Pittsburgh's offensive zone led to a Guentzel score and a 4-4 tie. His growth was the brightest ray of light out of a season that saw the Flyers struggle to make the playoffs, then spend much of this series showing how overmatched they really were against the Penguins. In a series where every first-goal scoring team has won, a ferocious start by Philly led to several scoring tries early. Guentzel has had a huge playoff so far skating alongside Sidney Crosby, scoring seven goals and 13 points in six games, and he and the Penguins will now get at least a brief rest before taking on the victor of the Blue jackets-Capitals series.

Couturier had a career season for the Flyers this year.

However, they are still looking for their first win of the series at the Wells Fargo Center after losing Game 3 and Game 4 in Philadelphia.

If nothing else, Sunday afternoon's tilt between the Penguins and Flyers was a damn good hockey game. for 50 minutes at least. In the postseason, however, the club's down to an average of 31.2 shots on goal (and down to 4.0 goals per game). They were always looking for the next play it seemed instead of just shooting the puck.

Sean Couturier's five-point game is even more impressive now, despite being in a losing effort.

Philadelphia did not get the type of offence from their blue line in this series that they did during the regular season.

Goalies_Pittsburgh, Murray 4-2 (26 shots-21 saves). We've got to pick up our game, too.' That's him, though.

Brian Elliott has denied 25.5 shots per game as the top selection in goal for the Flyers.

Not only did Couturier play, but he also scored the game victor with 1:15 left. "We didn't do that so we came up short". The Penguins came in 8-5 in potential close-out games since Sullivan took over in December 2015, including a 5-2 mark at home. "We were thrilled that it was going in the net for him".
