The Philadelphia Flyers entered the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs drawing the worst team possible for them - the Pittsburgh Penguins.

It took until the sixth game but the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers finally had their series turn into complete chaos.

"I think we have a bunch of capable guys that can play for us here". They face-off tonight in Columbus. Kris Letang collected three assists himself, and Guentzel added one for a five-point night.

They did it on Sunday without the services of Evgeni Malkin who missed the game after being injured early in Game 5. They lost to the Penguins in six games in the Stanley Cup finals last season after being eliminated in seven games in the second round in 2016 by the San Jose Sharks.

When it came to the actual game, the Penguins needed another offensive outburst in Philadelphia because Sean Couturier did everything in his power to try and single-handedly will his team to a win. In Game 5, he tallied the game-winning goal with 1:15 remaining. They were 3-1-1 against the Jets in the regular season.

Goaltenders Brian Elliott and Michal Neuvirth both have one-year left on their contracts. "There are a lot of real positives that we're going to be able to go back and evaluate". "It's a tough league and it's a grind and a long season".

From there, Guentzel took over, scoring three consecutive goals to open the third period to help the Penguins take a 7-4 lead.

Couturier scored his second goal of the game just 40 seconds into the second. He led them in postseason ice time at 24:52 per game and was matched against Penguins star Sidney Crosby all series.

Laughton later propelled the Flyers ahead 4-2 with a wrist shot from about 30 feet out at 12:14.

Colton Sissons almost gave Nashville the early lead in the first period, only to have his goal disallowed when officials ruled Kyle Turris interfered with Hammond.

The Penguins didn't wilt and got within 4-3 when Hornqvist received a pass from Guentzel and scored at 13:35.

Do the Philadelphia Flyers have a shot to take the series to a decisive Game 7? A healthy Couturier could have pushed the series in the Flyers' favor. The Penguins proved to be too much in an 8-5 loss in Game 6.
