National Hockey League playoffs 2018: Flyers' Sean Couturier played with torn MCL

National Hockey League playoffs 2018: Flyers' Sean Couturier played with torn MCL

Guentzel becomes the third player in Penguins playoff history to score four goals in a game.

Connor Hellebuyck made 30 saves for his second shutout of the series, and Mark Scheifele added a goal in the third to help the Jets finish off the Wild in five games.

He gave the Penguins a 5-4 lead when he scored 30 seconds into the third period off a pass from Phil Kessel on a 2-on-1.

The Penguins defeated the Capitals in the second rounds of the 2016 and 2017 playoffs on their way to back-to-back Stanley Cup Championships.

But the Penguins, who were missing star center Evgeni Malkin because of an unspecified injury, didn't get rattled.

If nothing else, Sunday afternoon's tilt between the Penguins and Flyers was a damn good hockey game. for 50 minutes at least.

After successfully killing the game's first power play as the second period began, the playoff coming out party for Couturier continued, as Matt Read forced a turnover in the neutral zone just after the penalty had ended and found Couts streaking toward the net on a breakaway.

The Penguins swept the three playoff games at the Wells Fargo Center. Crosby, naturally, tied the game when he knocked in a rebound off Kris Letang's point shot for his whopping sixth goal of the series.

Andrew MacDonald tied it 2-all on a sizzling shot.

Matt Murray should have stopped the goal - the kind of bad goal usually allowed by the Flyers - and the crowd derisively chanted his name.

He took advantage of a Flyers turnover at the blue line as Crosby fed Jake Guentzel, who set up Hornqvist to make it 4-3 at 13:35.

The series had been more cordial than confrontational but both teams cranked up the nastiness levels in Game 6.

But the Flyers got another break on a penalty that should have gone against them when Travis Konecny held Sheary on top of him by the jersey, then cross-checked Sheary in the back as he skated back to the bench. Flyers coach Dave Hakstol gave the refs an earful while the fans howled as the hits were shown on replay.

The Penguins almost scored on an extended stretch of 6-on-5 play, as the Flyers could not touch up on a delayed penalty call.

Blame an offense that, with the Flyers trailing by just a goal, had no shots in the first 11-plus minutes of the third period. Well let's go through this piece by piece if we can. Bryan Rust scored an empty-net goal to make it 8-5 at 19:29. "Look at our team last year and look at our team this year", he said.

Malkin's knee injury had a ripple effect on the lineup, although the return of Patric Hornqvist somewhat softened the blow.
