Flyers' Ivan Provorov, Sean Couturier are warriors if not winners

The 28 goals scored by the Penguins set a new Flyers franchise record for goals against in a six-game series.

Couturier sealed the hat trick with a goal in the third period.

The loss also wasted a superb performance by Couturier, who was forced to miss Game 4 after colliding with Gudas during practice, but returned to score the eventual game-winner in Game 5. "When the bounces start going your way, you just try and run with it". "I turned the puck over a couple of times and they turned into goals, and, um. and we lost the game".

In Game 6, the Penguins scored twice in 47 seconds in the first period to take a 2-1 lead, twice in 1:24 to go from trailing 4-3 late in the second period to leading 5-4 at 30 seconds of the third period, and twice in 10 seconds midway through the third to make it 7-4. They probably get swept without him. The Capitals lead that series three games to two. Couturier scored his second of the game on a attractive 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. However, it wasn't anything the Penguins - playing without star Evgeni Malkin, out with a lower body injury - did to the Flyers more than it was what the Flyers did to themselves.

It was a fast pass from MacDonald across the ice in the Flyers' defensive zone that Provorov didn't control, and it wound up on the stick of Pittsburgh's Phil Kessel, who instantly got it to Jake Guentzel for a go-ahead goal and a 5-4 lead 30 seconds into that final period. Then, the Flyers Scott Laughton scored his first playoff goal by by receiving a long pass and finishing it off with a slapshot. 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. "I know I've said it before, but I have a lot of respect for that guy". The Flyers failed to take a shot on goal until almost 12 minutes into the third period and Couturier capped his three-goal game with 2:53 left to play.

"Not good enough", Giroux said in an accurate self-assessment. That's the reality. Could we have played better as a team?

"It's tough because we lost, obviously", said Couturier, who somehow is still just 25 and has a lot of years ahead. "It's too bad we didn't come away with the result we wanted".
