The 25-year-old center, who scored three points in Philly's 5-1 Game 2 victory over the defending Stanley Cup champions, was ruled out of Wednesday's lineup thanks to a collision with Gudas in practice on Tuesday.
The Penguins have reached the playoffs in 12 of Crosby's 13 National Hockey League seasons (thanks in large to No. 87) and have also played deep into many of those postseasons. So great, in fact, that the Flyers still go to her now and then (usually when they need a victory as badly as they did in Game 4) by putting her on the video board in a powerful duet with Lauren Hart, who is standing on the ice below.
The Pens will host the Flyers tomorrow night at PPG Paints Arena needing one more win to move on to the second round. The Flyers realized the importance of winning at least one of their previous two games at home to avoid heading back to Pittsburgh on the verge of elimination, but they couldn't even accomplish that goal. Pre-game on WISR is 6:30pm.
Tomas Hertl scored 1:16 after Andrew Cogliano tied the game 1-1 in the third period to give the Sharks their second sweep in franchise history (they previous swept the Vancouver Canucks in 2013). Pittsburgh now holds a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. His night was a bit less intense than Game 3 this past Sunday, but still Murray came up big when the time called, most notably, stoning Travic Konecny on a break away as he was released from the penalty box late in the first. Back-up goalie Michal Neuvirth didn't fair much better, giving up two goals on just 13 shots. Crosby now has nine points in four games.
In comparison, five Penguin players have outscored the Flyers trio by themselves: Crosby (9), Jake Guentzel (7), Malkin (5), noted scoring machine Brian Dumoulin (5) and Letang with 4. Malkin made a nice pass to Kessel, who shot the puck right at Elliott.
