Pittsburgh Penguins vs Philadelphia Flyers Series Review

Penguins and Flyers Square Off Sunday in Game Six

Penguins vs. Flyers: Game 6 Prediction, NHL Playoffs

Over Pittsburgh's last ten games, eight of them have been decided by two or more goals (the team is 5-3 in those games).

Couturier finished Philadelphia's brief postseason with 9 points (5 goals, 4 assists) in the five games he played.

The Philadelphia Flyers are making it a series.

Do the Philadelphia Flyers have a shot to take the series to a decisive Game 7? While the Flyers' campaign is now over, this certainly was a remarkable series for Couturier and it comes after a breakout regular season where he scored 31 goals and 76 points in 82 games. Couturier took the next step this season and was phenomenal, and kept it going in the playoffs.

The winning goal in Game 5, a remarkable three goals and two assists Sunday in a wild 8-5, season-ending loss in Game 6 - all of it with a torn medical collateral ligament in his right knee, all of it necessary for the Flyers to make this series competitive again.

"He gave us a chance to win that game", said Claude Giroux, who had just one goal and was a minus-10 in the series. There was one instance when the Flyers were buzzing in Game 4 when the Penguins couldn't clear the zone. "I don't think I've ever had a game like this, where they're just going in like that".

At the start of the second period, Sean Couturier scored a nifty backhanded shot against Murray, taking the lead for the Flyers at 3 goals to 2.

Uncharacteristically sloppy play, turnovers and a lack of finish plagued the Penguins in their Game 5 loss. "No people believed in us that we would be here and [would] be able to play good hockey against Pittsburgh, so [I'm] just very proud of this team". Matt Murray made 21 saves but had no chance on Couturier's victor as the puck found its way through a sea of players and into the net. "I guess that's why they're the two-time defending champions".

Philadelphia did not get the type of offence from their blue line in this series that they did during the regular season. But he was the only one to score more than one goal against the Penguins. "It's too bad we didn't come away with the result we wanted".

Not only did Couturier play, but he also scored the game victor with 1:15 left. "We'll learn from it and come stronger next year". "... There's been a lot of talk, we're tight to play at home, we're this, we're that".
