Flyers' Couturier Game-Time Decision After Injury In Practice

Pittsburgh will look to close the series out at home Friday night.

In what has become a recurring theme in the series (Games 1, 3 and 4), the Flyers had some golden 1st period scoring opportunities - a Michael Raffl chance from the doorstep and a Travis Konecny breakaway exiting the penalty box being the most notable - that did not result in goals. With Michal Neuvirth in goal, Sidney Crosby welcomed him almost three minutes later with a stealthy wraparound goal and a commanding 4-0 lead. And in scoring, Crosby also reached another milestone.

In the second, Kris Letang and Sidney Crosby tallied in quick succession, the latter being an milestone for the Penguins captain. Crosby then surpassed Mario Lemieux with his 173rd career playoff point, a sleight-of-hand wraparound goal after Michal Neuvirth lost track of the puck on a tangle behind the net.

For as much as Hornqvist's absence on the power play was a major storyline for the Penguins, the Flyers suffered a greater loss when Sean Couturier was injured in practice.

Couturier (lower body) won't be in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 4 against the Penguins, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.

Failing to score a single goal in two of the four meetings this series is just one of many examples behind the struggles of this Philadelphia team, and it doesn't look like it's going to get any better heading into Game 5. Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel scored goals in the opening period and Matt Murray stopped all 26 Philadelphia shots on goal for the win. They had stolen momentum.

No, it was the visitors who dictated terms to the Flyers right from the start Wednesday night at Wells Fargo Center, putting the defending champs on the verge of a ninth straight series victory. The Philly boo birds came out during what would be a shot-less Flyers power play in the second period. This is also just the third series in National Hockey League playoff history in which the first four games have each been decided by four or more goals. Neuvirth was so baffled that he was looking right, while Crosby was on his left.
