William Nylander is slated to start Game 5 alongside Tomas Plekanec and Andreas Johnsson.

Connor Brown will play alongside Auston Matthews instead. "I think it's good," said Nylander. "We haven't been able to produce the way we wanted to so I think it's a good change and I think it could be a fresh start for us today." He only has one assist through four games against Boston in the first round of the playoffs.

Philadelphia did not provide an update on the status of Ivan Provorov, which is a little concerning.

Provorov went hard into the boards on Friday night just before Sean Couturier's goal and may have hurt his shoulder. 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. An update on Provorov may not come until close to puck drop on Sunday afternoon. He would be a big loss for the Flyers if he is unable to play in Game 6.

Michal Neuvirth was back on the ice Saturday morning.

Neuvirth felt good after Friday's 4-2 win over Pittsburgh in Game 5 in his first start since his return from a lower-body injury. "I think I'm close (to 100 percent). The wraparound goal, gotta be better on that," said Neuvirth. "That's why I went on the ice. Tried to fix those little things." He should be back in goal for the Flyers on Sunday for Game 6.
