Crosby leads Penguins past Flyers for 3-1 lead in playoffs

Crosby leads Penguins past Flyers for 3-1 lead in playoffs”

If the Philadelphia Flyers want to stay alive in this series against the Pittsburgh Penguins and not fall 3-1, they all but have to win tonight in their last game at home before heading back to PPG Paints Arena on Friday. Seeing the star center suffer a lower-body injury in practice of all places after Couturier collided with teammate Radko Gudas was beyond frustrating to see for the Flyers, and watching them lose 5-0 the way they did against the Penguins in Game 4 was the icing on the cake. The Flyers realized the importance of winning at least one of their previous two games at home to avoid heading back to Pittsburgh on the verge of elimination, but they couldn't even accomplish that goal. Crosby and the Penguins followed a 7-0 Game 1 win and a 5-1 Game 3 victory with another dominant outing.

Simply put, the Flyers looked deflated and dejected knowing they would be forced to play without Sean Couturier, who was a game-time decision but officially ruled out 40 minutes before the opening faceoff.

After watching what transpired over the last two games, there's a strong feeling the Flyers played their final game on South Broad Street this season.

"The puck ended up right on my stick", Crosby said. 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. Neuvirth was so baffled that he was looking right, while Crosby was on his left. Couturier was third on the Flyers with 76 points during the regular season.

Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds and Jakub Voracek have combined for zero goals, four assists and are a combined -9 for the series.

Nikita Kucherov was a force in this one, scoring the twice and adding an assist while laying a massive (and controversial) hit on Devils' defenseman Sami Vatanen, which knocked the latter out of the game.

"They came out hard", Andrew MacDonald said. So great, in fact, that the Flyers still go to her now and then (usually when they need a victory as badly as they did in Game 4) by putting her on the video board in a powerful duet with Lauren Hart, who is standing on the ice below. The Devils led until J.T. Miller and Kucherov scored about 3 1/2 minutes apart in the first period.

You felt like if the Penguins could survive it and make some thing happen from there, that it could be a fatal blow not only the game, but the series.
