Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Philadelphia Flyers 4/22/18, Prediction & Odds

Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Philadelphia Flyers 4/22/18, Prediction & Odds

Matt Murray was able to make the save on Lethera's shot but could not control the rebound in front of him. It was Courturier's second goal of the series. The Nashville Predators clinched all three of their playoff series a year ago at home a year ago in reaching their first Stanley Cup Final and have a chance to close out Colorado in Game 5 (9:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN).

A 4-2 home loss to the Flyers in Game 5 was admittedly hard to swallow in the locker room.

The Flyers have had a rough time in the second period of every game in the series except for game two.

Rinne was solid early after being pulled from the last game.

The first thing the Penguins had to do to prepare for Game 6 in Philadelphia was get over the disappointment they have to play a Game 6 in the first place.

With time running out Matt Read picked up the empty net goal to give the Flyers a much needed four to two victory. The Philadelphia Flyers have allowed five or more goals in four of their last eight games. "It means a lot just to be a finalist, especially with the two other nominees (perennial candidates/winners Anze Kopitar of the Kings and Patrice Bergeron of the Bruins)".

-Washington defeated Columbus 4-1 last night and have tied their series 2-2. But that does not diminish the effort Michal Neuvirth had in the series, making 103 saves on 105 shots over the course of three games for a.981 save percentage. They got the game tied on a weak goal.

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

This is a time when players step up and turn in memorable performances.

USA says it caught Syrian-German linked to 9/11
Syria and its Russian backers deny that government forces were responsible for the reported attack in the town of Douma. Residents say they worry that Syrian authorities and their Russian allies are whitewashing the history of April 7.

The Flyers scored only three shorthanded goals during the regular season, tied for 30th in the National Hockey League . Managing to overcome this as well as a 10-game losing streak in early December, the Flyers would face their in-state rival Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round.

Watching from the stands or on television, it might have been the most dramatic moment of Game 5. The Sharks' best defenseman, Brent Burns (undisclosed), has an injury situation to monitor, but they are 11-4 in their last 15 home games against Anaheim. 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.

Colorado head coach Jared Bednar hopes "The Hamburglar" can help his team avoid playoff elimination on Friday night.

Dave Hakstol switched up his lines once again Thursday, most notably installing Valtteri Filppula onto the top line with Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek and breaking up the top defense pairing of Ivan Provorov and Shayne Gostisbehere. Neuvirth wasn't ideal, 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.

The Flyers, for the first time since Game 2, responded. The Penguins shellacked the Flyers throughout the third period, but none of that mattered when Couturier fired the puck through a screen and gave the Flyers the late lead. But Pittsburgh was not done and with Murray on the bench and an extra attacker on the ice, the Penguins continued to pepper Neuvirth. Neuvirth finished the game stopping 30 of 32 shots in his first full game since March 28th.

The Penguins figure to get one key player - Patric Hornqvist - back in the lineup for Game 6 against the Flyers Sunday, but now it seems Evgeni Malkin's availability could be up in the air. That preceded a 5-0 win in Game 4 in a game Pittsburgh dominated.

The louder the Flyers fans have shouted insults at Sidney Crosby, the better the Penguins superstar has played.

Neuvirth, making his first start in goal since February 15, stopped 30 of 32 shots and once again showed why he is regarded as one of the best "big-game" goalies in the business.
