Couturier missed Game 4 due to a knee injury, but he returned for Game 5 and managed to score the game-winning goal.

Sean Couturier was the star of the game for Philadelphia Friday night even if he is not fully recovered from a knee injury.

Couturier scored the winning goal in Game 5 with only 1:15 left in regulation to stave off elimination and keep the Flyers' season alive. He also spearheaded the Philly penalty kill that was a perfect five-for-five on the night. Of Couturier, Flyer captain Claude Giroux had the following to say: "I’ve got a lot of respect for that guy. He’s one of our leaders, and you can put him in any situation … and it’s impressive." Although he is still dealing with some knee pain, Couturier should continue to produce no matter where he appears in the lineup.

This season was Couturier's coming-out party in the NHL, as he put up some impressive offensive numbers (31 goals and 76 points in 82 games). As always, Couturier also showed an ability to be one of the better defensive players in the league this season. Los Angeles' Anze Kopitar and Boston's Patrice Bergeron are the other two nominees.

Sean Couturier (undisclosed) will not play in Game 4 against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night.

Couturier suffered an injury in practice after he collided with teammate Radko Gudas. The Flyers center was considered a game-time decision heading into tonight's game, but he obviously isn't healthy enough to suit up. This is a huge blow for a Flyers team that are trailing 2-1 in this best-of-seven series. The 25-year-old has one goal and two assists in three games this postseason.
Apr 18 - 6:33 PM

Sean Couturier (undisclosed) is a game-time decision on Wednesday, per Flyers coach Dave Hakstol.

The Flyers haven't provided much information about Couturier's injury beyond that, which isn't surprising given that we're in the playoffs. Couturier was hurt when he collided with Radko Gudas during Tuesday's practice. Couturier has a goal and three points in three playoff games this year.

For what it's worth, Wayne Simmonds believes Sean Couturier (undisclosed) will be okay.

Couturier collided with teammate Radko Gudas during Tuesday's practice. Couturier stayed on the ice for a little bit before gingerly leaving with head athletic trainer Jim McCrossin. Flyers GM Ron Hextall and coach Dave Hakstol wouldn't provide an update after the incident, so the most we have to go on right now is Simmonds' thoughts. "Coots will be fine," Simmonds said. "I’m not worried about Coots." Take that statement with a grain of salt though and consider Couturier questionable for Game 4 on Wednesday.
Apr 18 - 5:07 AM

Sean Couturier scored a goal and two assists in Friday's 5-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Couturier was one of the worst Flyers on the ice in Game 1, so it's encouraging to see him and his team bounce back in a big way in Game 2. He picked up an assist on Shayne Gostisbehere's power-play goal in the first period before using a gorgeous between-the-legs pass to set up Nolan Patrick's third-period tally on the man-advantage. Couturier added a goal of his own to make it 2-0 for Philadelphia in the middle period. He finished the game with a plus-2 rating and two shots on goal in 27:15 of ice time. He's up to three points in two playoff games this postseason. The best-of-seven series is heading to Philadelphia tied at one.
