Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Philadelphia Flyers: Game 4 prediction

The Pittsburgh Penguins will play the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 4 of the NHL Playoffs Eastern Conference Round One on Wednesday, start time at 7:00 PM ET.

During the Philadelphia Flyers Tuesday practice, standout forward Sean Couturier took a hard spill after colliding with defenseman Radko Gudas. Crosby scored his fourth goal of the series midway through the first period.

Friday's game back in Pittsburgh has been announced as a 7pm face-off.

Few Cubans use Twitter and the vast majority of the country relies on TV for news. The accounts are using the hashtag "Somos Continuidad" or "We are continuity".

The Penguins (2-1) are looking to create a distance after a 5-1 victory in Game 3.

Hope seemed to be a bit lost for Philadelphia following that embarrassing 7-0 blowout loss against Pittsburgh to kick off the series, and while it's easy to say they still have a fighting chance, playing without Couturier will make that a lot more hard to accomplish. Crosby leads in goals with 4 while Dumoulin tops in assists with 4. As Flyers Insider John Boruk indicated on Wednesday, the team is preparing to play Game 4 without their star center, although nothing has been made official at the moment. Things went flat and got worse for Philadelphia from there.

That being said, Philadelphia's big guns such as Claude Giroux, Shayne Gostisbehere, Nolan Patrick and Travis Konecny need to keep on ramping up their efforts. However, Tampa Bay is only 5-5 in its last 10 games as a road favorite and two core players, right wing Ryan Callahan (shoulder) and left wing Tyler Johnson (held out of practice Tuesday) are question marks. He has also been playing valuable minutes as the Flyers number one centre both at even strength and on the power play. Hear the game on WISR at 6:30pm. As long as Murray can continue to play like he did on Sunday, Pittsburgh will be in Game 4 and more than likely head back home with a commanding 3-1 series lead. The Sharks' best defenseman, Brent Burns (undisclosed), has an injury situation to monitor, but they are 11-4 in their last 15 home games against Anaheim.
