Pittsburgh Penguins push past Flyers to move on to the 2nd round

The Philadelphia Flyers end another season without a championship. Couturier scored his second of the game on a handsome breakaway to open the second period and Scott Laughton scored on a long wrister and almost pulled off a Lambeau Leap over the boards in celebration. The Flyers season was over, but their fans weren't going to go away without giving their fans another black eye. And while the fans couldn't storm the castle with pitchforks and torches, they let their displeasure known by pelting the ice with bottles, t-shirts and hats in the last 31 seconds.

This is standard procedure for Flyers fans.

The Philadelphia Flyers haven't won a Stanley Cup since 1975.

So it goes for the orange-and-black, trudging along without a Process or parade.

The Philadelphia Flyers' season is over after an 8-5 loss in Game 6 against in-state rivals Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday. The Flyers haven't reached the second round since 2012 and haven't played in the Cup finals since 2010.

It is the third straight season that Nashville have advanced to the second round.

Pittsburgh, which has a three-games-to-two lead, can wrap up the series with a win. "We didn't do that so we came up short". "It is a lot of fun right now and we are just trying to roll with it".

The Flyers clearly aren't in the class of the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Penguins. However, it wasn't anything the Penguins - playing without star Evgeni Malkin, out with a lower body injury - did to the Flyers more than it was what the Flyers did to themselves. Those following his picks all season have more than $5,600 to show for it. "... There's been a lot of talk, we're tight to play at home, we're this, we're that. It's too bad that we didn't come with the result that we wanted". "We did that. Now we have to win the next one". Simmonds, a former All-Star, could be on the market if the Flyers are committed to a true youth movement.

Game six was a magical game for Guentzel, who had four goals and one assist for five points. Flyers coach Dave Hakstol gave the refs an earful while the fans howled as the hits were shown on replay. The Flyers signed former Calgary goalie Brian Elliott to a $5.5 million, two-year deal and he was a bust in the playoffs.

But, even more impressive is that we found out that the injury that kept him out of Game 4 was a torn MCL, according to Flyers beat reporter David Isaac.

Gostisbehere was moved off the top defense pairing during Game 4 and likely will start Game 5 on the second pairing with Robert Hagg, a healthy scratch for the first four games of the series.
