Penguins knock off Flyers, Predators dismiss Avalanche

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Pittsburgh Penguins at Philadelphia Flyers
Eight goal outburst helps Penguins topple Flyers in six games

Jake Guentzel scored four goals and had an assist as the Penguins took care of the Flyers by an 8-5 margin in a wild Game 6.

Guentzel now has 13 points in six playoff games (6-7-13), which isn’t too bad. Sean Couturier would also have five points for Pittsburgh (3-2-5) in a losing effort. Pittsburgh will go on to face the winner of Washington / Columbus. The Capitals hold a 3-2 series lead, they’ll get the chance to advance with a win on Monday night.

Nick Bonino had a three point night (1-2-3) and Pekka Rinne was perfect in net stopping 22 shots as the Nashville Predators cruised to a 5-0 victory over the Avalanche. The Predators clinch their series victory in six games, and they’ll face Winnipeg in round two.

STILL ALIVE

Along with Caps / Blue Jackets, The Bruins are up 3-2 over the Maple Leafs. They’ll have a chance to put a cap on their series on Monday night in Toronto.

OILERS

Just five days remain between now and Saturday’s NHL Entry Draft Lottery. The odds say that the Oilers have just a 5% chance to win it all, which is just a little less than half of what they needed to win in 2015. Get your popcorn ready.
