As tight-lipped an executive as he was a loose-lipped player, Hextall Thursday was specifically not talking about Sean Couturier, who a short time earlier had tried to stroll as limp-free as possible into a Skate Zone interview room and declare himself fit enough to. well, at least join his team in Pittsburgh for Game 5 Friday night of a almost lost Eastern Conference quarterfinal series against the Penguins.
"Obviously, they can draw on a great experience the last few years", Flyers defenseman Andrew MacDonald said. They took the lead on a weak goal.

Filppula fought for the puck behind the Pens' net and got it to Voracek who sent Giroux a sweet pass which he got in his wheelhouse for a one-timer past the stunned Matt Murray to open the game's scoring.

Pittsburgh finished 0-for-5 on the power play, while the Flyers went just 0-for-1 in a game that saw a ton of 4-on-4 hockey.
The closer the Penguins get to crunch time, the more coach Mike Sullivan leans on the players he trusts most. I'll take a shot with the plus money and the home team. "How the game is played is going to have an impact on how the minutes are dispersed".

This much, though, is certain: The Penguins, who hold a 3-1 series lead, can wrap things up and move on to the Eastern Conference semifinals with a win Friday at PPG Paints Arena.
