The Preds and Winnipeg Jets will engage in a memorable second-round series, with Nashville surviving in seven games. With some close action and hints of the rivalry now injected into the series, Sunday's game should be a hot ticket not that the Flyers have made it a series again. Philadelphia jumped out to a 2-0 lead after the second period, but Washington came roaring into the third period.
The Flyers also Couturier back to center the third line just three days after teammate Radko Gudas accidentally took him out during a drill in practice that forced Couturier to watch Pittsburgh's clinical 5-0 Game 4 romp from the press box. "It's got to be our best game". Filppula was able to pick up the rebound and stuff the puck between Murray's legs to tie the game at two each just before the end of the period.
An empty-netter by Matt Read with 18 seconds to play officially put the game on ice.
The Penguins, who lead 3-1 and aren't acting stuck up about it, are that much better. He just loves the game. Philadelphia had their chances, but their series long struggles on offense continued and they fell to the Capitals 1-0, losing the series 4-2.
The Predators tried to make sure they're well-rested by flying back to Tennessee on Thursday, and they will have a chance to advance against Colorado's backup to the backup goalie.
Anyway, Couturier has plenty to be upbeat about. he's getting a free ticket to the NHL Awards Show in Las Vegas in June.
Rumour: Battlefield V Battle Royale Prototype in Works at DICE
And what will happen to all of them when there will be too many battle royale games around? Battlefield 5 is now in development. If DICE does decide that it's happy with what it has, it won't have it ready in time for the initial release.
This is a time when players step up and turn in memorable performances. 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.
The Flyers couldn't afford to fall behind early on the road.
And lopsided. Flyer fans exited Game 4 chanting for the firing of coach Dave Hakstol, and his grasp on the gig become precarious if his team can't force the Penguins to head back east for Game 6.
Malkin, a Hart Trophy contender, has five points, including three goals in the Round 1 series.
Neuvirth was dressed as the backup for Game 4 coming off a lower body injury that prevented him from dressing since March 28th. Five minutes later Dustin Byfuglien released a high wrister from the right point, and Bryan Little came in from the right wall, reached out and redirected it past a sliding Dubnyk.
The total has also gone over in seven of Anaheim's last 10 playoff games when it was an underdog on the road.

The prospect of a hard Brexit remains, while the issues of the customs union, single market and the Northern Ireland border are yet to be settled.
Claude Giroux said the other day if the Flyers were going down, they would be going down swinging. Murray stopped all 26 shots sent his way in Game 4 for his second shutout of the series against Philly, while in the other win he only surrendered one goal.
Couturier posted a career-high 76 points in the regular season but has just two goals in 21 National Hockey League playoff starts.
Both teams battled hard in the third with Pittsburgh continuing to attack Neuvirth, putting scoring chances on the net.
With 15:13 left in the third period, Giroux and Penguins defenceman Jamie Oleksiak collided, and the Flyers' captain limped off the ice. Neuvirth finished the game stopping 30 of 32 shots in his first full game since March 28th.
The Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers meet Sunday in game six of the NHL Eastern Conference First Round Playoffs at the Wells Fargo Center. The period would end with the Penguins outshooting the Flyers fourteen to eight but the Flyers seemed to gain the edge in confidence with their late short-handed goal.
The Penguins' equalizer came at 12 minutes when when Bryan Rust nudged a wraparound goal past the skate of Neuvirth, who had hung on by the skin of his teeth for the previous five minutes after a slashing penalty from Shayne Gostisbehere put the Penguins on the attack in the power play.
