Couturier's status in question after collision with Gudas in practice

НХЛ Вашингтон повторно уступил Коламбусу успехи Вегаса и Питтсбурга

Two of the so-called fiercest rivals in the National Hockey League have provided three lopsided games: Pittsburgh's 7-0 win in Game 1 and Philadelphia's 5-1 victory in Game 2 could about qualify as nail-bitters in this series.

Star center Sean Couturier went down at practice on Tuesday after an ugly collision with team-mate Radko Gudas and could be in jeopardy of missing Wednesday's matchup against the Penguins. In total, 19 goals have been scored in the series, but the lowest margin of victory has been four goals.

Justin Schultz made it 5-1 in the third on Pittsburgh's third power-play goal of the game.

With another shot at getting a win over the Penguins in the series on home ice, a lesson learned from a hard loss, and the overlaying adversity of a 3-1 series deficit, expect Philadelphia to give it their all in tomorrow's game. Though they suffered a major loss in Game 3, the Flyers need to step up.

Filppula is scoreless in the playoffs, while Patrick has a goal and an assist. The top line for Philadelphia has been throughly dominated by Crosby and linemates Jake Guentzel and Bryan Rust. The Penguins are the superior team.

Columbus heads home for Games 3 and 4 on Tuesday and Thursday two victories away from advancing to the second round for the first time in franchise history. Game 2 provided hope for the Flyers and their fans, but their goaltending isn't good enough and they don't have to scoring depth of Pittsburgh. Hear the game on WISR at 6:30pm. Even if some of Couturier's teammates like Claude Giroux are capable of stepping up if needed, this is the last thing the Flyers wanting to be dealing with during the series. Even if Couturier plays, he won't be 100 percent and trying to check Crosby or Malkin at less than 100 percent is worse than throwing Filppula out there. The Sharks' best defenseman, Brent Burns (undisclosed), has an injury situation to monitor, but they are 11-4 in their last 15 home games against Anaheim.
