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

Jake Guentzel's four goals led the Pittsburgh Penguins to victory against the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Pens play the victor of the Capitals/ Blue Jackets series.

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.

In Game 1, they allowed two goals in 4:02 in the first period to turn a 1-0 game into a 3-0 hole, then allowed two goals in 1:11 to fall behind 5-0. "Look at our team last year and look at our team this year", he said. "When the bounces start going your way, you just try and run with it". Couturier scored his second of the game on a handsome 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. How many times do fans need to be told not to throw stuff on the ice, with the exception of hats after a player scores three goals, catfish in Nashville or octopus in Detroit?!?! "They got their chances, they capitalized on them".

The two goals were just 47 seconds apart, but the Flyers did tie the game again late in the first when Provorov teed up a one-time shot for Andrew MacDonald to blast past Matt Murray for 2-2.

'Schoolhouse Rock' composer Bob Dorough, RIP
That concept became the song "Three Is a Magic Number" and the project would become the Grammy-nominated Multiplication Rock . His family told the Associated Press that Dorough died Monday at his home in Mount Bethel, PA , but did not give a cause.

That went for Couturier, too, as he nearly penned a story of overcoming injury that was just as remarkable, or more so, than Provorov's. Guentzel was on his way to scoring an unbelievable four consecutive goals to blow the Flyers away. 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. He missed Game 4 and clearly wasn't at full strength in Game 5, but he's battled and did whatever he could to help his team stave off elimination. If necessary, Game 7 will be played Wednesday night. It gave Giroux only his third point of the series after an MVP-worthy regular season.

So went yet another last Flyers game of a too-early spring, leaving them to experience a familiar kind of pain while admiring the efforts of their respective forward and blue line building blocks of the immediate future, Couturier and Provorov.

"I couldn't move that well, so I just tried to be well-positioned, have good sticks", he said.

"Not specific to those guys, I feel like we were our own worst enemy", Hakstol said.
