Preview: Penguins at Flyers
Gracenote
Apr 21, 2018

The Philadelphia Flyers extended their Eastern Conference first-round series by defeating the Penguins in Pittsburgh for the second time in three games. The Flyers, who find themselves trailing 3-2 in the series, aim to once again stave off elimination in Game 6 on Sunday afternoon against a Penguins club that has outscored the hosts 20-4 at Wells Fargo Center this season.

"The crowd plays a big role, especially in the playoffs," said Philadelphia center and Selke Trophy finalist Sean Couturier, who returned from a one-game absence due to a lower-body injury to score the go-ahead goal with 1:15 remaining in the third period of Friday's 3-2 win. The Flyers aim to avert an 0-3 postseason performance for the second time in 20 years against Pittsburgh, which has posted wins in Philadelphia with lopsided scores of 5-1, 5-2, 5-1 and 5-0 - with the latter two coming in Game 3 and 4 of this series. Penguins superstar captain Sidney Crosby has tuned out Flyers fans and the team itself in Philadelphia, erupting for 10 points (two goals, eight assists) and a plus-8 rating in four games this season at Wells Fargo Center. "You have to have that urgency, that desperation level. Maybe you find that's easier to get when you're on the road more," said the 30-year-old Crosby, who was held reasonably in check with one assist and a minus-2 rating on Friday.

TV: 3 p.m. ET, NBC, CBC, TVAS

ABOUT THE PENGUINS: Forwards Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist will be "game-time decisions" in Game 6, per coach Mike Sullivan, with the former laboring after Jori Lehtera fell on his left leg in the first period while the latter has missed the last two games with an upper-body injury. Malkin returned to the second period and logged 20:22 of ice time, but Derick Brassard likely would be elevated from the third line to second should the former Hart Trophy recipient's injury be too much after the adrenaline wears off. "(Brassard) is an important player for us, regardless of who's in the lineup. He's a good player. I thought (Friday) night was his best performance as a Penguin," Sullivan said of Brassard, who notched an assist in Game 5 and has three points (one goal, two assists) in the series.

ABOUT THE FLYERS: Valtteri Filppula turned in his most impressive performance as a member of the Flyers on Friday, netting a short-handed goal to forge a tie late in the second period while setting up two others after failing to dent the scoresheet in his nine previous outings. "Fil's just a really good, two-way veteran. Very sound up and down the middle of the rink," coach Dave Hakstol said of the 34-year-old Finn. Michal Neuvirth, a surprise starter in Game 5, turned aside 30 shots - including a diving stop on Crosby with 50 seconds remaining in the third period - to increase his postseason save percentage to a sterling .930 in 15 career tilts.

OVERTIME

1. Pittsburgh G Matt Murray sports a sizzling 9-1 record in his career in the next game after a postseason loss.

2. Philadelphia is 0-for-11 on the power play in the last three contests.

3. Penguins C Jake Guentzel has two goals, six assists and a plus-5 rating in the series.

PREDICTION: Penguins 3, Flyers 2

Preview: Avalanche at Predators
Gracenote
Apr 21, 2018

The Colorado Avalanche weren't given much of a chance by many prognosticators heading into their Western Conference first-round series with the Nashville Predators, but a late surge helped them fend off elimination in their last outing. The upstart Avalanche aim to fluster the Presidents' Trophy-winning Predators once again in Game 6 on Sunday when the series shifts to the Pepsi Center.

Nathan MacKinnon deftly weaved his way around defenders before setting up captain Gabriel Landeskog for the tying goal before Sven Andrighetto cleaned up a rebound with 1:28 left as Colorado snapped a seven-game skid in Nashville with a 2-1 win on Friday. "We've got a series again going home, and it's going to be exciting," said Landeskog, who leads the team in goals (four) and points (seven) in this series - with one more than MacKinnon in both categories. Nashville was unable to advance and set up a conference semifinal date with Patrik Laine and Winnipeg despite unleashing 19 of its 45 shots in the third period at Andrew Hammond (career-high 44 saves), but coach Peter Laviolette wasn't going to put too much stock into the latest setback. "That's what the playoffs are all about, it's about picking yourself up when something doesn't go your way and going back out and trying to make things right," Laviolette said. "There's a lot of confidence in the room the guys will go out to Colorado and get this done."

TV: 7 p.m. ET, NBC Sports Network, Sportsnet, TVAS, FS Tennessee (Nashville), Altitude (Colorado)

ABOUT THE PREDATORS: Austin Watson recorded his club-best sixth point while extending his point streak to six games (four goals, three assists) after setting up Nick Bonino midway into the third period on Friday. While Watson is having a strong series, Nashville's second line of Craig Smith, Kevin Fiala and Kyle Turris have struggled mightily at times against Colorado. Smith has saved face with two goals, but Fiala committed both of the Predators' penalties in Game 5 and Turris has registered only five shots while notching just one assist and a minus-1 rating in the series.

ABOUT THE AVALANCHE: Hammond had all of one regular-season game with Colorado under his belt, but that lack of familiarity didn't prevent him from turning in a sterling performance in Game 5. "For the most part, I thought guys did a good job letting me see pucks through lanes and boxing out," the 30-year-old said. "When it wasn't, you go back to your roots. I'm more of a battler as a goalie than necessarily technically perfect, but you'll take it however it comes." Defenseman Tyson Barrie set up a goal for the second straight game and fourth time in four outings to pull even with Mikko Rantanen for the team lead in assists.

OVERTIME

1. Nashville has won three of four meetings with Colorado at Pepsi Center, including a 3-2 victory in Game 4.

2. The Avalanche are just 2-for-20 on the power play in the series while the Predators have failed to score on all six opportunities with the man advantage in the last two games.

3. Nashville C Colton Sissons scored in each game in Colorado this series and had two goals and an assist in two regular-season encounters.

PREDICTION: Predators 3, Avalanche 2
