  • Flyers-Penguins preview: Michal Neuvirth tries to keep Philly alive

Updates with new lead, quotes.

Regardless, they got to a Game 6 where they even held a two-goal lead in the second period before the defense melted down in epic fashion and turned the puck over repeatedly like they were being paid to do so.

Sean Couturier is a prime example of this. There's one season that ultimately is successful, and obviously we didn't accomplish that this year. They use systems of play that they have been planning all season to get the slightest advantage against their opponents.

Center Sidney Crosby has five goals, nine points and a plus-9 rating in the Penguins' three wins, and just one point and a minus-3 rating in their two defeats.

The Flyers allowed the Penguins to score goals in bunches throughout the series. That victory pushed the teams back to Philadelphia for Game Six on Sunday.

The Penguins play the victor of the Washington-Columbus series in the Eastern Conference playoffs. "We came in to win the series".

The two-time defending Stanley Cup champs have won all four games in Philadelphia this season - and scored five goals in each of them.

Mistakes that injected some actual tension into a series devoid of it coming in. Couturier said he played with a torn right MCL suffered in a collision with a teammate at practice last week. Pittsburgh has gotten there by developing a killer instinct under head coach Mike Sullivan that it lacked at times before his arrival in December, 2015. Under third-year coach Dave Hakstol, this season's berth was considered a mild surprise, especially when the team lost 10 straight games in November/December and all seemed lost.

The post-game handshake line is one of the greatest acts of sportsmanship in professional athletics but it was tainted by the trash-chuckers from the stands. Guentzel then took a feed from Crosby and slipped it between Neuvirth's legs to put Pittsburgh in front. Now Philadelphia has to do it again at home, a place where the Penguins outscored the Flyers 10-1 while rolling in Games 3 and 4. "Some of the penalties that we took along the way, to some of the plays that we just didn't make that normally we as a team expect to make".

The total has gone over in 11 of the Penguins' last 13 road games.

KEY PLAYERS: Thanks to the Flyers' stunning 4-2 win in Pittsburgh on Friday, there finally is some drama in this series, one that had blowouts in the first four games.
