Sean Couturier plays through torn MCL, posts hat trick in Flyers' loss

Michal Neuvirth gives the Flyers hope against Penguins

The Flyers clearly aren't in the class of the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Penguins.

After missing Game 4 with a lower-body injury, Couturier extended his team's season at least two more days by picking up his second goal of the series. "We got two big wins on the road", Giroux said.

The star center scored the game-winning goal in Game 5 against the Penguins and had a hat trick and two assists in Sunday's Game 6 loss. Couturier did everything he could to extend this series one more game, but he didn't get enough support from his teammates.

"The difference in the series was momentum swings", said winger Scott Laughton . "Lucky bounce, but we'll take them". Get the app and get the game.

"You're just seeing the 2-on-1 go down, and you're just like, 'No way this can happen, ' " Guentzel said. He played almost half of each game in the series.Shayne Gostisbehere had just one goal in six games despite playing with Provorov for most of the series.

It came back to haunt the Flyers when Bryan Rust scored on a wraparound against slow-to-react Neuvirth (30 saves) with eight minutes left in the second, knotting the score at 1-all. Keller was second in points with 23 goals and 42 assists, and Boeser was second among rookies with 29 goals despite appearing in only 62 games.

The Flyers certainly need them. And it's not like Couturier was playing timidly out there, he was battling to do anything in his power to force a Game 7. "Only word I can say is it's frustrating". That means he outproduced Giroux, Voracek and Simmonds combined.

Sean Couturier and his Philadelphia Flyers were eliminated in six games by the Pittsburgh Penguins. That's for general manager Ron Hextall to assemble in the offseason and the years ahead. With center Nolan Patrick, winger Travis Konecny and defensemen Shayne Gostisbehere and Provorov, there is a talented, young core. However, the Flyers have demonstrated an impressive resiliency and won't go down without a fight. Those following his picks all season have more than $5,600 to show for it. That had never happened with the Penguins until now.

The Flyers cut the Penguins' series lead to 3-2 going into Game 6 on Sunday in Philadelphia. The Flyers signed former Calgary goalie Brian Elliott to a $5.5 million, two-year deal and he was a bust in the playoffs.

"I thought the second and third (periods) we were much better", Crosby said. "That shouldn't happen in the playoffs". "We didn't do that so we came up short".
