The Flyers had the Penguins dead to rights after three games. Can Pittsburgh continue its unlikely comeback?
The Keystone State's entrant in the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup playoffs looked like a Philadelphia Flyers runaway after three games. But the Pittsburgh Penguins have responded with their backs against the wall, winning two straight to push the series to a Game 6 in Philadelphia on Sunday.
Philadelphia's offense, so good in its first three games while pouring in 20 goals, has slowed down in Games 4 and 5, totaling just five tallies. And the Penguins have found their scoring touch of late, putting in 19 goals in their last three games, including a 10-goal explosion in Game 4 — which was played in Philadelphia.
