"When the bounces start going your way, you just try and run with it".

The two-time defending Stanley Cup champions Penguins will face either the Washington Capitals or the Columbus Blue Jackets in the next round.

After missing Game 4 with a lower-body injury, Couturier extended his team's season at least two more days by picking up his second goal of the series. "I don't know what their team is like. It's same for both teams". Then, the Flyers Scott Laughton scored his first playoff goal by by receiving a long pass and finishing it off with a slapshot. But he was the only one to score more than one goal against the Penguins.

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 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. The Penguins' power play is 5 for 24 (20.8 percent), while the Flyers' is just 2 for 18 (11.1 percent)...

Asaram had been charged under the POSCO and Sc/ST Atrocities Act. "She stood by her testimony throughout the trial", he told NDTV. The father of the victim said that he had complete faith in the judiciary and was confident that justice would be done.

The Flyers could look to Nolan Patrick, the No. 2 overall pick of the 2017 draft, to play a more pivotal role next season. They were 0-for-13 in their three home games, including 0-for-3 in Game 6.

Claude Giroux picked up his first goal of the series and Matt Read added an empty-netter.

Crosby scored Pittsburgh's first goal at 6:30 of the first period from Kris Letang of Montreal, Quebec and Brian Dumoulin to tie the game at one at the time.

Sexsmith's Carter Rowney and the Pittsburgh Penguins punched their ticket to the 2nd round of the playoffs Sunday afternoon thanks to an 8-5 win over the Philadelphia Flyers. In the second period of Game 5, the Penguins doubled their lead from 2-0 to 4-0 in 2:52.

Couturier, 25, scored the game victor in the Flyers' 4-2 victory in Game 5. "They press you hard, so you have to move the puck fast and support each other, and that's what we did in the first two periods. They got their chances, they capitalized on them". Crosby's third point came on a game winning goal by Guentzel at 12:48 of the third period which put Pittsburgh up 6-4. But Hakstol and Hextall are tight - Hextall's son, Brett, played for Hakstol at North Dakota. That victory pushed the teams back to Philadelphia for Game Six on Sunday. "We didn't do that so we came up short".
