Philadelphia Flyers vs. Pittsburgh Penguins 4/20/18, Prediction & Odds

"We didn't give up a whole lot of chances, especially in the third period, and one of them ended up in our net". The Flyers have now won their last two games in Pittsburgh, but they have lost their two home games in this series by a 10-1 count.

Gabriel Landeskog started the rally with his goal into an empty net with Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne caught outside the crease with teammate Ryan Ellis in his lap.

The Penguins lead the best-of-seven series 3-2. Of the team's 86 games this season, 48 have gone over the total, while 34 have gone under and just four have pushed.

In their third chances, they're 1-0, finally polishing off Washington in Game 7 in the second round last season. Neuvirth made a few nice - if risky - saves, but he couldn't hold the lead after losing Rust behind the net.

You can never count the defending Cup champs out, and they showed why they are so tough to beat. "Get bumped a little bit, and hopefully it'll keep going well today and I can play tomorrow". Brian Elliott has given up 14 goals on 97 shots faced and Petr Mrazek has allowed two goals on 14 shots.

The Flyers couldn't afford to fall behind early on the road.

Valtteri Filppula's short-handed goal tied it late in the second period shortly after the Penguins had taken the lead and Couturier's second goal of the playoffs was a knuckler that deflected off Pittsburgh defenseman Brian Dumoulin and by a surprised Murray. But his success was short-lived and in Game 3 he gave up five more goals in a 5-1 loss in Philadelphia.

Neuvirth was dressed as the backup for Game 4 coming off a lower body injury that prevented him from dressing since March 28th.

Here's specifically what he said about Darnold , Allen , Rosen , Mayfield and Jackson as it relates to the Wentz/Luck comparison. Note that the standard draft value chart created years ago has been proven to not apply based on moves in the last 2-3 years.

With the National Hockey League playoffs at the midpoint of the first round, the Penguins are a -140 moneyline favorite at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com against the rival Philadelphia Flyers with a 6-goal total for Wednesday's Game 4 matchup.

Well, Friday night they came out swinging and they didn't go down.

Claude Giroux said the other day if the Flyers were going down, they would be going down swinging.

After leading the Penguins with 42 goals and 98 points in 78 regular-season games, Malkin has five points (three goals, two assists) in five games this series. But the Flyers goalie held strong through shorthanded situations and the Penguins pressure before Sean Couturier got the puck by Murray to give the Flyers a 3-2 lead with 1:15 remaining. But Pittsburgh was not done and with Murray on the bench and an extra attacker on the ice, the Penguins continued to pepper Neuvirth. Michal Neuvirth stopped 30 shots, including a diving stop on the doorstep to deny Penguins star Sidney Crosby with 50 seconds left. Neuvirth finished the game stopping 30 of 32 shots in his first full game since March 28th.

The Penguins have the Flyers on the canvas in a headlock.

The Penguins' equalizer came at 12 minutes when when Bryan Rust nudged a wraparound goal past the skate of Neuvirth, who had hung on by the skin of his teeth for the previous five minutes after a slashing penalty from Shayne Gostisbehere put the Penguins on the attack in the power play.

The Flyers are 2-0 in the series when they score first, 0-3 when they don't. He earned the "Crybaby Crosby" moniker from the Flyers fans in 2005 after taking a hard hit from Flyers' defender Derian Hatcher and having teeth knocked out by a high stick, which elicited complaints to the referees by the 18-year-old Crosby. "I thought we did some really good things [Friday] and we have to clean up some other things, but overall, I think we played a decent game". If that happened, the Flyers would be 0-3 at the Wells Fargo in this year's postseason - and it would mean that, for just the second time in the past 20 years, Philadelphia would have failed to win at least one home game when it reached the playoffs.
