Penguins' Evgeni Malkin out for Game 6 with lower-body injury

Jake Guentzel scored four goals, and the Pittsburgh Penguins advanced to the Eastern Conference Second Round with an 8-5 win against the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 6 of the first round at Wells Fargo Center on Sunday. That created a 2-on-0 and Kessel fed Guentzel for the slam dunk into an empty net, giving the Penguins a 5-4 lead with his second of the game.

Connor Hellebuyck made 30 saves for his second shutout of the series, and Mark Scheifele added a goal in the third to help the Jets finish off the Wild in five games.

It took until the sixth game but the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers finally had their series turn into complete chaos. They have played the Capitals in the second round in each of the past two seasons.

But Guentzel wasn't done, scoring his fourth consecutive goal and seventh of the National Hockey League playoffs to make it 7-4 10 seconds later.

But the Penguins, who were missing star center Evgeni Malkin because of an unspecified injury, didn't get rattled. After coming out of the box Letang appeared to get away with a trip on Sean Couturier, allowing the Penguins to keep possession of the puck and Guentzel to score his third goal of the game.

Couturier started the Flyers off on the right foot with a goal at 2:15 of the first. Guentzel was there to put it home, tying the game at four with 54 seconds left in the period. In a series where every first-goal scoring team has won, a ferocious start by Philly led to several scoring tries early.

"This is what you want to play in", Guentzel said.

Crosby led the series with 13 points, including three in the series-clinching Game 6.

Carl Hagelin scored at 7:17 to make it 2-1 before Andrew MacDonald tied it 2-2 at 15:48.

As the period hit the halfway point, shots were 2-0 Penguins.

Defenseman Radko Gudas had a particularly brutal game and was guilty of costly plays on the two Penguins' second period goals to tie the game.

Patric Hornqvist scored his second of the series to pull the Penguins to 4-3.

Penguins coach Mike Sullivan made the smart move by keeping the third line of Derick Brassard, Conor Sheary and Bryan Rust intact, as they had been their best line in Game 5. Penguins forward Carter Rowney cross-checked Travis Konecny and roughed him up on the ice while the officials just watched.

Hart Trophy candidate Claude Giroux scored only one goal in the series for the Flyers.

Couturier, 25, logged 31 goals and 45 assists in 82 games during the regular season and will look to build on the breakout season in 2018-19.
