On the trip or no trip Couturier definitely added to it trying to get the call.

It came out last night that Couturier was playing on a torn MCL. The main purpose of that ligament is to prevent the knee from buckling inward.

I'm not sure if it was the same knee, but you have to think that was a factor in Couturier not being able to stay on his feet during that collision. He's either taking the impact on that leg, or he's trying to support his full weight on a busted knee. Either way, best of luck staying upright.



I knew of that information before I made my post. I'm sticking with the idea that Couturier embellished.
Have to admit that he was the best player on the ice yesterday even with the damaged knee.

Personally awaiting the BethSteel Flyers post-mortem. Most of their fans are content to blame the Mike Johnston-esque coaching of Hakstol, reasonably bad defense, disappearing Voracek, and goaltending, in some order, at this point.

Well to be fair, their goaltending WAS horrid.

On the flip side, after flashing his post-season form early on, Murray is back to being average, although many times in this series the defense let him down.

But whether you want to blame Murray or the defense, it’s a concern as the playoffs go deeper. It’s still looking like the potential fly in the ointment of us three-peating.

Murray has been average the past 2 games. The Laughton goal was terrible, the kind that can cost you a series.
I wonder if he isn't playing with a nagging injury because it looks to me like his quickness has been diminished recently.

Pens scored 28 goals in the Philly series and that isn't likely to happen going forward, not with the competition that remains. So Murray better get back to his 'A' game or the three-peat is going to be nearly impossible to pull off.
