Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Philadelphia Flyers 4/22/18, Prediction & Odds

Flyers stay alive with second win

Two minutes later, the Flyers responded with a shorthanded goal by Valtteri Fippula sending the game tied at two going into the third. Can Philadelphia manage another win this afternoon on their home ice to force a Game 7?

An apology might not be necessary, but the bottom line is that Toronto Maple Leafs fans likely expect a lot from Kadri - not to mention star center Auston Matthews - as this team tries to fight back from down 3-1 in their series against the Boston Bruins.

Earlier in the game, it took the Flyers 17:29 of grinding, but they finally got on the board in the first period on a wicked one-timer wrist shot from Claude Giroux for his first goal of the series.

Peters quits as Hurricanes coach • Bill Peters has not been able to lead Carolina back to the National Hockey League playoffs and after coming up short following his fourth season with the club, announced his resignation Friday. The puck was batted away from the pile by Brian Dumoulin but intercepted by Jakub Voracek.

In Game 6, the goaltending of Michal Neuvirth was just as impressive as it was in his first two appearances of the series. Giroux fired the puck over the glove of Matt Murray to give the Flyers a one to nothing lead with two and a half minutes left in the period.

Both of the Flyers' wins in the series have come in Pittsburgh.

The Flyers almost took a 2-0 lead a little over a minute into the second period.

The ultimate insult, of course, would be seeing the Penguins clinch the series on the Flyers' ice. They had been outscored 18-6 in the series, including 10-1 on home ice, but Giroux knew they'd be back.

As for whether they can continue playing this well on Sunday in another must-win game, only time will tell for Philadelphia. At the twelve-minute mark, Bryan Rust won a battle against Matt Read and skated behind the Flyers goal.

Overall, it was a credible Flyers performance, but as coach Dave Hakstol said, "I think we can all raise the level a little bit, and honestly, we're going to have to do that here tomorrow night to push it to a seventh game".

After a two-month-long radiation treatment, Mario Lemieux returned to the Penguins for their late-season matchup with the hated Flyers fans.

As it is, the Penguins are still sitting pretty heading for Game 6.

It takes monumental efforts from multiple players to stave off elimination from the playoffs when you're facing the two-time defending champion Penguins. The Flyers are fighting for all they're worth, and the gravity of this game is apparent after two periods tied 2-2. With the Penguins having all the momentum they seemed to catch a few breaks as well. The momentum change within PPG Paints Arena was palpable and it looked like the Flyers were in trouble down 2-1, and a penalty did nothing to assuage those concerns.

He entered the zone then set up in the slot. Matt Murray was able to make the save on Lethera's shot but could not control the rebound in front of him. But Filppula changed that before the end of the period. The Pittsburgh Penguins have allowed one or less goals in four of their last six games. "He's obviously a really important player for us". The only shenanigans came when Jared Bednar tried to sub an entire line after an icing, but that's just opportunistic coaching.Rinne has more than lived up to his Vezina Trophy finalist nomination, picking up 17 saves through two, and Hammond is keeping up with him, covering up second-chance opportunity after second-chance opportunity and snagging 24 saves of his own. This was the second straight phantom penalty called against the Flyers in the game and the Flyers players were starting to wonder how they only were given one power play back in the middle of the first period. "Just do what we did last game". The Penguins had dominated the period at that point, outshooting the Flyers, 9-1, in the first 12 minutes of the second.
