Flyers' Couturier played with torn knee in Games 5, 6

- Sean Couturier did what he could to deal with the pain in his left leg, then hopped over the boards and let the adrenaline that comes with playoff hockey take care of the rest.

The Philadelphia Flyers are making it a series.

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers will square off Sunday afternoon in Game Six of the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. They were always looking for the next play it seemed instead of just shooting the puck.

The Flyers certainly need them. Couturier did everything he could to extend this series one more game, but he didn't get enough support from his teammates.

Only 30 seconds into the third period, Phil Kessel stole the puck from defenseman Ivan Provorov at the blue line and fed Guentzel for a goal to give the Penguins a 5-4 lead. Claude Giroux, Valtteri Filppula and Matt Read also scored for the Flyers.

"I mean, he doesn't even come hit me or anything", Couturier said.

Nobody alive remembers Newsy, but we won't soon forget Jake turning this fierce in-state rivalry into his personal Guentzelvania.

"You make one, two, three mistakes and usually they end up in the back of your net", said winger Wayne Simmonds .

Pittsburgh would not go quietly, scoring a goal just 1:21 later.

Yet, the Penguins resilience hadn't run out, when Pactric Hornqvist buried a quick, sharp pass from Jake Guentzel past goaltender Brian Elliot, cutting the score to 4-3.

The Penguins will move on to play the victor of the series between Washington and Columbus.

"Like I said before, a lot of his records aren't going to be touched", Crosby told reporters. "It was a road game". We can be found at Sons of Penn and The Orange Update. In terms of injuries, the status of Penguins' center Evgeni Malkin is unknown due to a lower body/leg injury.
