Flyers stay alive with second win

It was the 2nd time in this series that they were shutout. The over-under for total goals scored is six. "They lead the way for us in so many different ways but certainly our compete level is one of them". Malkin returned at the start of the second and later got into a shoving match with Brandon Manning as both players got their sticks high. He's had seven, which isn't far off from the Penguins' scoring average in Philadelphia. "Go to the Olympic games, if you've got no chance for a medal there's no pressure", Babcock said during Friday's press conference. He was being neither obvious nor obtuse. "You work hard all season to get to this point, and not being able to help your teammates is frustrating, so I'm going to try to do all I can to be back out there and help the team".

The proof came over the course of six periods in Philadelphia in Games 3 and 4, when the Penguins outscored the Flyers 10-1 with Crosby, Malkin, Phil Kessel and goalie Matt Murray doing their part to reclaim momentum after Philadelphia pulled off a 5-1 stunner in Game 2 to briefly - emphasis on briefly - tie the series.

Couturier scored the game victor with a wrist shot from just inside the blue line.

Meanwhile, the Flyers' stars - Claude Giroux, Jakub Voracek and Wayne Simmonds - were once again silenced on the score sheet.

It was such a clutch goal for Couturier, who fought through pain to play in Game 5. Murray remained on the ice and continued in goal until the end of practice.

The Flyers, for the first time since Game 2, responded.

"The crowd plays a big role, especially in the playoffs".

Take-Two Interactive (TTWO) Price Target Lowered to $140.00 at Morgan Stanley
Cambridge Investment Research Advisors Inc. lifted its position in shares of Take-Two Interactive by 60.7% during the 4th quarter. The company reported $0.99 earnings per share for the quarter, topping the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of $0.96 by $0.03.

"A lot of it is mentality", Hextall said. It was a great effort from the whole lineup, but two plays late in the game were crucial to the win. It marked the second time in the series the Flyers had scored first - and they won the other time, 5-1, in Game 2. As luck would have it, the Penguins' overwhelming presence in the period is precisely what Neuvirth said he needed after facing only five opening-period shots in his first start since mid-February.

The Penguins replied with two goals in a 4:45 span in the second for the first lead change of the series.

A deep breath in the form of a short-handed goal by center Valtteri Filppula - channeling his younger days in Detroit - altered what already was going to be the most important third period of the season.

Fast forward two seasons after getting embarrassed by the Capitals in the first round, and the Flyers are still going with Hakstol as their head coach.

Look, there are few rational reasons to suggest a Game 7 in Pittsburgh is probable. The Flyers finished the 2017-18 season with a record of 42 W 26 L and 14 OTL to pick up the third seed in the Metropolitan Division standings. Their best center is on one leg, and Giroux is on the board with only one goal and one assist. The Philadelphia Flyers, Minnesota Wild and Colorado Avalanche are on the verge of elimination.

There's also at least some reason to wonder if Matthews is at least somewhat limited by the injury that cost him 10 games from February 22 until his return to the lineup on March 22.

Even on one good leg, there is an bad lot right about him.
