National Hockey League playoffs 2018: Flyers' Sean Couturier played with torn MCL

Provorov played Game 6 despite an injury to his left shoulder that limited his effectiveness.

Couturier was the hero for the Flyers in Game 5 following the freak accident in practice led to a knee injury that forced him to miss Game 4.

Ivan Provorov got the puck at the top of the left circle and passed across to Andrew MacDonald, who unleashed a slap shot that beat Murray to tie the game with 4:12 remaining in the first period. The Capitals can clinch a series victory Monday night in Game 6, with Game 7 scheduled for Wednesday if necessary. Now Philadelphia has to do it again at home, a place where the Penguins outscored the Flyers 10-1 while rolling in Games 3 and 4. Couturier took the next step this season and was phenomenal, and kept it going in the playoffs. The forward deked the puck around Murray to put the Flyers ahead again, 3-2.

After falling to the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 in their best-of-seven first-round Stanley Cup playoff series, the Flyers responded Friday with a big 4-2 win in Game 5 in Pittsburgh, keeping the series alive.

Earlier on Tuesday, Syrian state media falsely reported that members of the world's chemical weapons watchdog had entered Douma. Saudi Arabia is also a member of the USA -led coalition battling IS militants.

Claude Giroux, who was second in the National Hockey League during the regular season with 102 points (34 goals, 68 assists), had three points (one goal, two assists) in the series. Philadelphia fans have been clamoring for offense from the 8th overall pick in the 2011 entry draft, and Couturier finally answered. Three goaltenders dressed for the Flyers and they all had a below.860 save percentage. "Lucky bounce, but we'll take them".

It remains to be seen how much the Flyers will be able to close what is still a fairly sizable gap on upper-echelon teams like the Penguins.

Couturier, 25, logged 31 goals and 45 assists in 82 games during the regular season and will look to build on the breakout season in 2018-19.

The total has gone over in 11 of the Penguins' last 13 road games. "I guess that's why they're the two-time defending champions". "They got their chances, they capitalized on them". "It's too bad we didn't come away with the result we wanted". "We were thrilled that it was going in the net for him". And it's not like Couturier was playing timidly out there, he was battling to do anything in his power to force a Game 7. "We'll learn from it and come stronger next year".
