Banged-up Penguins look to eliminate Flyers

Flyers stay alive with second win

Flyers stay alive with second win

This would be only the third tie all series that the Flyers have not allowed more shots than they put on the opponent's goalie.

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. Murray remained on the ice and continued in goal until the end of practice.

"I don't think a lot of people counted us in for this game", Gostisbehere said. The latter two games were in this conference quarterfinal.

The Flyers had a solid opening period, with a 60.87 CF% at 5-on-5, but were massively outplayed in the second period, as Pittsburgh had a 67.74 CF% at 5-on-5.

And they know they have to be better in goal. a Flyers' postseason desire that goes back in ancient history to when Hextall was a player instead of a tight-lipped GM.

The Penguins also got a scare when one of their stars Evgeni Malkin stayed on the ice after the Flyers' Jori Lehtera fell on his leg. Malkin returned to the game in the second period.

However, Valtteri Filppula scored a goal shorthanded for his second point of the game on a rare rebound off of Matt Murray. Meanwhile, Washington was applying the pressure all night to the Philadelphia defense and Neuvirth.

Brian Elliott (2.80 goals against average and.905 save percentage) has been the main option in goal for Philadelphia. The series was headed back to Philadelphia and it seemed the Flyers had seized momentum behind Neuvirth, trailing 3-2 in the series. 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. They had been outscored 18-6 in the series, including 10-1 on home ice, but Giroux knew they'd be back.

The Flyers found themselves back in the playoffs this year after missing the previous season.

And the San Jose Sharks (-169), the only home team which is favored on Wednesday, are trying to complete a sweep against the Anaheim Ducks (+152). Goalies Brian Elliott and Michal Neuvirth suffered injuries during the regular season which left the Flyers to rely on Alex Lyon and Petr Mrazek from a trade with the Detroit Red Wings for some time.

Do the Philadelphia Flyers have a shot to take the series to a decisive Game 7?

Neuvirth was dressed as the backup for Game 4 coming off a lower body injury that prevented him from dressing since March 28th. The Pittsburgh Penguins have allowed one or less goals in four of their last six games.

The Flyers, easily brushed aside in their two home playoff games against Pittsburgh, showed urgency, character and aggression Friday as they outlasted the Penguins, 4-2, and avoided elimination. He still played over 20 minutes in Game 5, including seven shot attempts and five shots on goal.

Matt Read then closed the victory by hitting an empty net.

Jake Guentzel and Bryan Rust scored for Pittsburgh, the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion.

Both teams battled hard in the third with Pittsburgh continuing to attack Neuvirth, putting scoring chances on the net. Giroux fired the puck over the glove of Matt Murray to give the Flyers a one to nothing lead with two and a half minutes left in the period.

From what we've seen of the Penguins at the Wells Fargo Center this season, it's a given that they will bring their urgency.

Crosby has five goals, nine points, and a plus-9 rating in the Penguins' three victories, and just one point, an assist, and a minus-3 rating in their two losses.

Philadelphia's attempted 31.7 shots per game overall this season (ranked 17th in the NHL), and 29.2 in its last 10 games. "But just like we have all series, I think we're going to put it behind us and focus on the next one".

After Brian Elliott was pulled in Game 4 in favor of Michal Neuvirth, Flyers coach Dave Hakstol chose to go with his backup for Game 5, and he was rewarded.
