Funeral Home Offers Flyers Fans Condolences After Playoff Elimination

In a Facebook post by Patrick T. Lanigan Funeral Home & Crematory, a photo of a funeral card is featured accompanied with the text, "Help us send our condolences to the Philadelphia Flyers and their fans, with these custom prayer cards memorializing their run in the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs".

Couturier finished the series with five goals and nine points in five games.

With a moneyline of -165, Pittsburgh enters the matchup as the noticeable favorite. 6, Philadelphia, Laughton 1 (Couturier), 12:14. The line for betting the total stands at -110 money on the over and -110 for the under. And 47 seconds after Crosby's equalizer, Carl Hagelin put the Penguins back where they are used to being in South Philly - ahead. With the win, the Penguins won the best out of seven series four games to two.

Philadelphia coach Dave Hakstol, perhaps fighting for his job, made his first significant change in an effort to keep his team's season alive, giving Neuvirth his first playoff start in almost two years after Elliott couldn't shake out of a funk that saw him pulled in Game 1 and again in Game 4. In 31 postseason games, he has 19 goals and 34 points.

The Flyers could look to Nolan Patrick, the No. 2 overall pick of the 2017 draft, to play a more pivotal role next season.


NOTES: Penguins F Patric Hornqvist missed his second straight game due to an upper-body injury. The game 6 loss was not for lack of contribution by the first time Selke Trophy Finalist, who scored three goals in the game.

The Flyers went 22-13-6 on home ice in the regular season. He was Philadelphia's best player in the series. The Flyers and Penguins are often touted as one of the NHL's fiercest rivalries.

With a wide-eyed wonder at his own good fortune, the 23-year-old winger had to pinch himself.

A series that saw Guentzel tie Crosby for the National Hockey League playoffs lead in goals (six), assists (seven) and points (13). The Flyers also got a strong game from their penalty killers, who snuffed all five Pittsburgh power plays and added a short-handed goal from Valtteri Filppula, and from Michal Neuvirth, one of three goalies Philadelphia has used in this series.

The Flyers, for the first time since Game 2, responded. Pittsburgh went 17-20-4 as the visiting team in games this season.
