Philadelphia Flyers have hope after all against Pittsburgh Penguins

May JohnsonApr 23, 2018

He's hurting, but it's the playoffs.

If Malkin can't go, look for Derick Brassard and Riley Sheahan to assume the second and third-line center spots with Carter Rowney - yes, that Carter Rowney - drawing back into the lineup.

Not only did Couturier do a solid job under the circumstances, he scored the biggest goal of the season. Multiple scrums in front of the net with Hammond in the center have ended with the puck miraculously getting cleared, and this game has the distinct feeling of first-goal-wins as we head into the third period. "Get bumped a little bit, and hopefully it'll keep going well today and I can play tomorrow".

The ultimate insult, of course, would be seeing the Penguins clinch the series on the Flyers' ice. Rust attempted a wrap around on the Flyers net and beat Michael Neuvirth who was slow to react to tie the game at one goal each. "Our focus has to get back to one game".

Giroux opened the scoring for the Flyers in Game 5, paving the road to victory.

In addition to the Penguins hosting the Flyers, the New Jersey Devils are hosting the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 4 of that first-round series, and the Devils are trying to square the series.

Everyone, that is, expect Ivan Provorov. Crosby is still the most risky player in the league, Malkin has game-changing moves and shooting ability, while Kessel remains one of the top snipers in the game. Let's say that again.

Hey, Dave Hakstol has realized that Robert Hagg is still around. Also scoring in the win was Claude Giroux, which was his 35th of the year, Valtteri Filppula, which was his 12th of the year and Matt Read, which was his 2nd of the year.

The Preds and Winnipeg Jets will engage in a memorable second-round series, with Nashville surviving in seven games. Everything was going Pittsburgh's way. The President's Trophy-winning Nashville Predators are one victory over the Avalanche away from moving on to the second round of the 2018 bracket.The Avs, despite playing tough and preventing Nashville from sealing a sweep thanks to a Game 3 "W", face long odds to upset the Predators, who are 2-0 all-time when they're up 3-1.

Brady Planning To Work Out With Patriots Teammates Ahead Of OTAs
Another star Patriots player, tight end Rob Gronkowski , also hasn't indicated positively whether he'll return. Whether or not Brady returns, the Patriots will likely look at quarterbacks in the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft .

So what side should you back?

"I'm just going to go out there and do what I did my whole season and we'll see how it goes".

If the Penguins score on that power play, it might have just been the series.

After missing Game 4 with a lower-body injury, Couturier extended his team's season at least two more days by picking up his second goal of the series.

That's what makes the play, made by Filppula off a shot by Jori Lehtera, so gutsy. Instead of an impending two-goal deficit, the Flyers went into the second intermission tied with 20 minutes to try to win the game.

Bergeron a game-day decision • Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron was back on the ice on the team's off-day, and coach Bruce Cassidy said it will be a game-day decision whether he plays in Game 5 against Toronto on Saturday night. Can Philadelphia manage another win this afternoon on their home ice to force a Game 7?

The Flyers are 2-0 in the series when they score first, 0-3 when they don't. There was certainly no guarantee that the Flyers would get this opportunity. Philadelphia is 0-4 in its last four home games versus Pittsburgh. He has three points in the first five games. There was physicality. There were plenty of extra-curriculars. In Neuvirth's first start in the series, he made 30 saves and would seem the likely starter Sunday. Game 6 will be at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on Sunday. The puck drops for Game 5 at 7 p.m. Friday at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh. Elliott was chased out of the game again after allowing three goals in two periods and in entered Neuvirth.

Hammond relieved Bernier to start the third period and turned aside all eight shots he faced in his first post-season appearance since April 17, 2015, while a member of the Ottawa Senators.

The Flyers gave the Penguins five power plays Friday and killed them all.
