Flyers look to avoid elimination again in Game 6

"I guess I tore my MCL", he told reporters, adding an affirmative "yep" when asked to confirm that he played through it during Game 5 and 6 of the Flyers' first-round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Considering Provorov was playing with an injury left shoulder that he admitted forced him to pass more and limited his ability to shoot, placing too much blame on Provorov probably isn't fair.

The star center scored the game-winning goal in game five against the Pittsburgh Penguins and had a hat-trick and two assists in Sunday's game-six loss. 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 later in the period.

In the first period, Flyer's Sean Couturier opened up the scoring by jamming the puck past Murray, and in typical Sidney Crosby fashion, he answered back by sliding home a rebound to make the score 1-1.

Couturier injured his right knee in a practice collision with a teammate Tuesday and missed Game 4 of the series. He was the best player in the series for either side and the Flyers had no match for him.

"The boys stuck together and played for each other all year, and that's why we were here in the playoffs", defenseman Ivan Provorov said. Is Pittsburgh going to close it out in Game 5 with a third straight victory?

Sean Couturier's long shot from the point got past Matt Murray with 1:17 left and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-2 on Friday night to force sixth game in the first-round series. Their only series win was against Boston in 2010, when they actually overcame a three-games-to-none deficit. Philadelphia fans have been clamoring for offense from the 8th overall pick in the 2011 entry draft, and Couturier finally answered. They just chucked stuff while action was unfolding, forcing players to maneuver around it. "But it's only one game and we came here to win a hockey game". We weren't. Our guys couldn't wait to get back here, go out and play a full 60 minutes and push this thing back to a Game 7. "We didn't do that so we came up short. They embrace the challenge", Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. We're going to talk about it. The Flyers and Penguins are often touted as one of the NHL's fiercest rivalries.
