The Penguins are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Philadelphia, 7-2 in the last 9 meetings and the road team is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. Updates with new lead, quotes. The Flyers are 4-1 in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest, 5-2 in their last 7 home games and 2-5 in their last 7 games following a win.

In franchise history, the Flyers are 8-11 in Game 6 when they are facing a 3-2 series deficit. "The emotions, the adrenaline kind of takes over".

With the Flyers and Penguins meeting again in the playoffs, the Battle of PA is being recharged after a few stale years between the teams. "It's. when you win, they're the best". Listening to some of the Flyers speak after Friday's game, it sounds like all things considered, they'd rather not be in Philadelphia. After Valtteri Filppula mishandled the puck in front of the Penguins net a scrum ensued behind the goal.

An unlikely hero developed to get the go-ahead goal when Sean Coutuier who was a doubtful starter after being injured in practice, showed he is a true scorer as he tallied this goal at 18:45 to give his team the lead for the first time in the game.

Bettors have to weigh recency against sample sizes with the Nashville Predators (-165), who are deep into minus money against the Colorado Avalanche (+149), even though Colorado won in Game 3 of the series on Monday. "We did that. Now we have to win the next one".

"We know it's tough to end someone's season", said Penguins winger Jake Guentzel, whose team has outscored the Flyers by a 20-4 margin at the Wells Fargo Center this season. "You start overthinking it, trying to do to much, and yeah, I forgot to celebrate. (A) lucky bounce, but we'll take 'em".

Mistakes that injected some actual tension into a series devoid of it coming in.

It took the Flyers 17:29 of grinding, but they finally got on the board in the first period on a wicked one-timer wrist shot from Claude Giroux for his first goal of the series. But in the end, he came up clutch to keep the Flyers in the series, and that's why he got the start.Jets dominate Wild to advanceThe Minnesota Wild were facing a do-or-die Game 5 in Winnipeg and, boy, things did not go their way, with the Wild losing 5-0 after never recovering from a four-goal onslaught in the first period.The Jets poured it on early, starting with a goal from Jacob Trouba just 31 seconds into the game, and that would have been the game victor on its own, but it didn't stop there.

In one of the most iconic (and longest) games in National Hockey League history, the Penguins and Flyers battled for eight periods in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals. After the game, when asked about Malkin's status, Sullivan said he was "fine".

The Penguins lead the best-of-seven series 3-2. Neuvirth wasn't flawless, allowing two rather soft goals in the game, but he also made 30 saves, including several from point-blank range earlier in the game and an absolutely tremendous glove save on Sidney Crosby at the side of the net in the final minute. Bryan Rust beat Neuvirth with a wrap around 12 minutes into the second for his ninth career goal in a potential elimination game. It already had the Flyers a bit handicapped going into Game 4, though the presence of Couturier probably wouldn't have made much of a difference in the outcome. Just like two seasons ago, Neuvirth is giving the Flyers the best chance to win in the clutch, in the big games. However, Tampa Bay is only 5-5 in its last 10 games as a road favorite and two core players, right wing Ryan Callahan (shoulder) and left wing Tyler Johnson (held out of practice Tuesday) are question marks.

The Flyers were going to get a power play later in the second on a delayed penalty, but veteran Andrew MacDonald made a rookie mistake as was called for roughing Zach-Aston Reese.
