Flyers vs. Penguins

RECAP: Philly Stays Alive! Flyers vs. Penguins Game 5

1 min


With a late goal in the third period (1:15 remaining) from Flyers’ Sean Couturier, Philadelphia would hang on for the 4-2 victory to force Game 6, which will take place on Sunday in Philadelphia.

After an early goal by Claude Giroux, the Flyers would fall behind 2-1 in the second period, only to claw their way back with three unanswered goals in the second and third periods. Valteri Filppula would tie the game 2-2 in the second with a shorthanded goal with an assist from John Lehtera, which caused the momentum of the game, which had been tilted in the Penguins favor to that point, to be switched and the Flyers would take over.

With 18-seconds remaining, Matt Read would finish the game with an empty-net goal to now make the series 3-2, with Pittsburgh still holding the lead.
