A Crazy Game Ends With A Pittsburgh Series Win! Flyers V.S Penguins Game 6 Recap

1 min


With high expectations for a premium game, neither team disappointed. After an early goal by Flyers’ Sean Couturier, the horses went off to the races and fans would be treated to one of the fastest-paced games of this years’ Stanley Cup Playoffs.

After a crazy first period with goals from Pittsburgh’s Crosby, and Hagelin, and Philadelphia’s MacDonald, the game would enter the second tied 2-2. It appeared to be the Flyers game throughout the period, a goal from Laughton and a second from Couturier, they would lead 4-2, until a few great saves from Penguins goalie Matt Murray would lead to a late two-goal rush from Hornqvist and Guentzel, ending the second 4-4.

The majority of the third period would maintained controlled by Philadelphia, however, blatant turnovers and poor defensive structure would see Pittsburgh land three-straight goals from Guentzel… yes, ALL from Jake Guentzel. A late desperation hat-trick goal from Couturier would bring the game within two. But it would not be enough, as the Penguins would hang on for the 8-5 victory with a late empty-net goal from Rust, and second-round birth that will either see them play against the Columbus Blue Jackets or the Washington Capitals, both teams the Penguins have played commonly the past few playoffs.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have now won 9-straight Stanley Cup Playoff series.
