Flyers' Couturier, Neuvirth show up and knock Penguins off their game

Flyers' Couturier, Neuvirth show up and knock Penguins off their game”

The Pittsburgh Penguins didn't look this good during the regular season.

Referencing Crosby, who has seemingly scored and set up goals at will in this series, Hagg said, "I think we can be more physical on him".

It proved to be the right decision. The Pittsburgh Penguins are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 26.2 percent of their power play opportunities.

"I felt good once I got going", he said. Neuvirth did that on Friday, and he'll be relied on to do it again on Sunday. It already had the Flyers a bit handicapped going into Game 4, though the presence of Couturier probably wouldn't have made much of a difference in the outcome.

Everyone, that is, expect Ivan Provorov.

That has been Sullivan's go-to line for most questions regarding player availability in the postseason, but there might be more to it when it comes to Malkin. Let's say that again. While it's certain he's laboring in some way, it would take a lot to keep him out for Game 6 if there is a more serious underlying injury.

Giroux scored after taking a pass from Jake Voracek, who picked up a loose puck behind the goal line.

Hey, Dave Hakstol has realized that Robert Hagg is still around.

Valtteri Filppula's short-handed goal tied it late in the second period shortly after the Penguins had taken the lead and Couturier's second goal of the playoffs was a knuckler that deflected off Pittsburgh defenseman Brian Dumoulin and by a surprised Murray.

Trump wanted a " more robust attack" on Bashar al-Assad's regime, people familiar with the process told the Wall Street Journal . This led to days of confused messaging , and little has been said to clarify where the United States now stands.

Michel Neuvirth's lapse in judgement occurred in the second period of the Penguins' 5-0 trashing of the Flyers Wednesday at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pa.

Malkin, a Hart Trophy contender, has five points, including three goals in the Round 1 series. Everything was going Pittsburgh's way. We're down 3-1 obviously, but our focus has to get back to winning one game, and that's tomorrow.

The Predators tried to make sure they're well-rested by flying back to Tennessee on Thursday, and they will have a chance to advance against Colorado's backup to the backup goalie. Now we just gotta figure out how to play at home... He is also a point man on the Penguins heralded power play. The Flyers had been so morally wounded at times in this series that playing a fairly sound game for almost two periods only to trail by two would have probably been too much to overcome.

With time running out in the second, Jori Lehtera got off a hard shot on Murray. An early goal in the second period by Ryan White was all the Flyers could muster up against Holtby and they finished the game with only 11 shots on goal.

Philadelphia, which is just 4-8 in its last 12 home games as a moneyline underdog of +120 to +150, has issues with two of its key forwards. With that being said, they're giving the Predators everything they can handle as both teams look for the first goal of the game in what's been a stagnant game.Here, we've got you covered with everything you need for tonight's action:Friday's full scheduleLive updatesPredators and Avalanche battle it out for first goalThe Predators and the Avalanche are in the middle of a ground war so far, with the Avalanche's backs against the wall as they try to force a Game 6 in Colorado. They did. Now the series comes home and gives the Flyers a second chance - or third really - to give the home fans a show.

The Penguins are 4-0 in their last 4 road games, 10-3 in their last 13 Conference Quarterfinals games and 5-2 in their last 7 overall. There was certainly no guarantee that the Flyers would get this opportunity. They are 0-2 at home.

Filppula struggled mightily down the stretch and in the first four playoff games. There was physicality. There were plenty of extra-curriculars.

Philadelphia's skaters have been whistled for penalties 3.5 times per game in total this season, and 4.6 per game over their last five road outings. The momentum change within PPG Paints Arena was palpable and it looked like the Flyers were in trouble down 2-1, and a penalty did nothing to assuage those concerns.
