Ivan Provorov: Status uncertain ahead of Game 6

Flyers stay alive with second win

Philadelphia, which is just 4-8 in its last 12 home games as a moneyline underdog of +120 to +150, has issues with two of its key forwards.

Nashville has lost three of the last four games when it was a road favorite and has given up the first goal in each game of this series. Elliott is averaging 25.5 saves per game and has 25 wins, 22 losses, and seven OT losses to his credit.

The Flyers had a solid opening period, with a 60.87 CF% at 5-on-5, but were massively outplayed in the second period, as Pittsburgh had a 67.74 CF% at 5-on-5. And that's exactly what the Flyers got Friday night in a 4-2 win at PPG Paints Arena, allowing them to live another day.

There's really no question who gets the start in goal for Game 6. Filppula also provided an assist on Matt Read's empty net goal to seal the deal. The series was headed back to Philadelphia and it seemed the Flyers had seized momentum behind Neuvirth, trailing 3-2 in the series. He just loves the game. Matt Murray has given up eight goals on 120 shots faced. 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.

Michal Neuvirth didn't have a flawless night in Game 5. "Lucky bounce, but we'll take them".

There's a chance the Flyers could have Sean Couturier in the lineup. Managing to overcome this as well as a 10-game losing streak in early December, the Flyers would face their in-state rival Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round. The Flyers did trail the Pens 2-1 but scored the final three goals of the game and it was Sean Couturier, who scored the game-winner with just 1:15 left in the game.

On Sunday, with his team holding a 3-2 lead in the best-of- seven series, Crosby will probably spend lots of time matched against one of the Flyers' unlikely heroes in Game 5, veteran center Val Filppula.

Oil climbs towards $75 a barrel to reach highest point since 2014
As a result, the International Energy Agency last week suggested OPEC and its partners could declare "mission accomplished". Analysts including investment bank JP Morgan had predicted that oil prices could rise as high as $80 per barrel this year.

Malkin, a Hart Trophy contender, has five points, including three goals in the Round 1 series. The Flyers are a +205 underdog, while the total sits at 6 goals.

Well, Friday night they came out swinging and they didn't go down.

The Preds will find a way to eliminate the first-year Golden Knights, and they will get the job done in five games, while the Bruins will eliminate the defending Stanley Cup champions in six games. Two minutes later, the Flyers responded with a shorthanded goal by Valtteri Fippula sending the game tied at two going into the third.

Both teams battled hard in the third with Pittsburgh continuing to attack Neuvirth, putting scoring chances on the net.

Now, with the Penguins trying for their third-straight Stanley Cup and the Flyers catching fire late in the season, we can only hope this matchup regains the spark it once had. But Pittsburgh was not done and with Murray on the bench and an extra attacker on the ice, the Penguins continued to pepper Neuvirth. He was back on the ice for his next shift for a few seconds before he left following Michal Neuvirth's glove save on Sidney Crosby. Neuvirth finished the game stopping 30 of 32 shots in his first full game since March 28th.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Sven Andrighetto scored with 1:28 left to lift Colorado past Nashville, sending the first-round series back to Denver for Game 6.

Panic if you must, since math doesn't win hockey games, but the Penguins are far from in trouble statistically speaking.

The Flyers and Penguins went back and forth throughout the game, but it was the Flyers who would prevail late in the game and take Game 5 by a final score of 4-2. If that happened, the Flyers would be 0-3 at the Wells Fargo in this year's postseason - and it would mean that, for just the second time in the past 20 years, Philadelphia would have failed to win at least one home game when it reached the playoffs.
