Flyers Notebook: Jake Guentzel scores four to foil Flyers

Michal Neuvirth gives the Flyers hope against Penguins

Guentzel has had a huge playoff so far skating alongside Sidney Crosby, scoring seven goals and 13 points in six games, and he and the Penguins will now get at least a brief rest before taking on the victor of the Blue jackets-Capitals series. Philadelphia was also taking away a lot of the shooting lanes which is something that not many teams did well against the Penguins power play. "So pretty fortunate to be on the good end of them tonight". Sidney Crosby scored his sixth goal of the playoffs in the first period, and added two assists.

Evgeni Malkin had a good series as well, before he got hurt in game five. Matt Murray made 21 saves but had no chance on Couturier's victor as the puck found its way through a sea of players and into the net. The Penguins have won nine straight playoff series, which ties a franchise record and are the most in the National Hockey League since the Detroit Red Wings also won nine from 1997 to 1999.

"I mean, he doesn't even come hit me or anything", Couturier said. "We're just trying to roll with it as it goes".

The Flyers' season ended with an 8-5 loss in Game 6 to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday in the opening round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. He did all of that while playing with a torn MCL he suffered in practice before game four. In Game 5, he tallied the game-winning goal with 1:15 remaining.

Heading into a do or die situation in Pittsburgh the Flyers rallied to a 4-2 victory to give their fans hope that an unlikely comeback could be on. He scored 30 seconds into the third for the lead off another giveaway, and sealed one more lopsided win over the Flyers with two goals 10 seconds apart late in the period. Couturier scored his second of the game on a lovely breakaway to open the second period and Scott Laughton scored on a long wrister and almost pulled off a Lambeau Leap over the boards in celebration. The Flyers looked unprepared as the series started, and dropped Game One without scoring a single goal.

He was 8 pounds, 7 ounces when Catherine gave birth just after 11 a.m. local time, according to Kensington Palace . All eyes remain on the Lindo Wing as the world awaits the Royal Baby's big debut! "I wish them all the very best".

Colton Sissons almost gave Nashville the early lead in the first period, only to have his goal disallowed when officials ruled Kyle Turris interfered with Hammond. He did score 34 goals and recorded 68 assists during the regular season. A year ago, we spoke about being a team with depth and the ability to not look to one, or two, or three, or four players.

Brian Dumoulin had perhaps his best series as a Penguin as he was sound defensively and also contributed offensively which is a rarity for me. Couturier scored his second of the game on a attractive breakaway to open the second period and Scott Laughton scored on a long wrister and almost pulled off a Lambeau Leap over the boards in celebration. He reaffirmed the respect of his teammates and his importance to the Flyers' future just by playing in Games 5 and 6, let alone by carrying them, and he is still just 25.

Crosby had a hat trick in Game 1 and matched a postseason-high with four points in a Game 3 win in the Philadelphia arena where fans stuck his photo on the inside of urinals.

Claude Giroux picked up his first goal of the series and Matt Read added an empty-netter.

Philadelphia's MacDonald tied the game at 2 when he blasted a one-timer with a terrific screen in front by Wayne Simmonds.
