Penguins vs. Flyers: Game 6 Prediction, NHL Playoffs
Couturier suffered the injury when he collided with teammate Radko Gudas during practice on Tuesday.
But Couturier would return for the final two games of the series, fighting through the injury to post six points (four goals, two assists) in those games including a hat trick in the finale. He scored 30 seconds into the third for the lead off another giveaway, and sealed one more lopsided win over the Flyers with two goals 10 seconds apart later in the period. The Philadelphia Flyers end another season without a championship. The opening face-off is at 3 p.m. ET on Sunday, April 22, and you'll be able to watch the game live on NBC. He was the best player in the series for either side and the Flyers had no match for him.
Six years into his National Hockey League career, Couturier had never scored more than 15 goals in a season, had never provided conclusive evidence that he could be more than a third-line center and penalty-killer. Murray has allowed just one goal combined on 77 shots in Pittsburgh's three wins in this series but has been noticeably worse in the losses.
After falling to the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 in their best-of-seven first-round Stanley Cup playoff series, the Flyers responded Friday with a big 4-2 win in Game 5 in Pittsburgh, keeping the series alive. 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). Sean Couturier crashed the net and was able to knock it in to give the Flyers the lead 2:15 into the game.
If Guentzel built the foundation for a reputation as a playoff performer with 13 goals and 21 points in 25 games past year, he has cemented it. "They got their chances, they capitalized on them".
The Flyers could look to Nolan Patrick, the No. 2 overall pick of the 2017 draft, to play a more pivotal role next season. The winning team has scored four goals or more in all nine meetings between these teams dating back to the regular season. "It's too bad we didn't come away with the result we wanted". If necessary, Game 7 will be played Wednesday night. 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. "... There's been a lot of talk, we're tight to play at home, we're this, we're that".
