PHILADELPHIA | Guentzel scores 4 goals to lead Penguins to Game 6 clinch

But with his team down 3-1 in the series, he returned and scored the game victor in Game 5 on Friday, before his encore performance in Game 6 Sunday was overshadowed by a four-goal outburst from Pittsburgh's Jake Guentzel.

This is the third time the Avalanche had trailed 3-1 in a series since the franchise relocated to Colorado.

Trailing 4-2 halfway through the second period of Sunday's Game 6, the Pittsburgh Penguins were staring at the possibility of having to go home for a Game 7 against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Sean Couturier had a hat trick and two assists in the Flyers' 8-5 loss to Pittsburgh in Game 6. He had five shots on goal.

Pochettino did not criticise any of his players and instead focused on the difficulty of competing with the club's major rivals. And we are in the process of the last four years, there was the challenge to try to be competitive in the top four.

It wouldn't last long. Couturier scored his second of the game on a attractive breakaway to open the second period and Scott Laughton scored on a long wrister and almost pulled off a Lambeau Leap over the boards in celebration. But Couturier poked the puck into the net for his third playoff goal. Pittsburgh also received scoring from Crosby, Carl Hagelin, Patric Hornqvist and Bryan Rust. The Flyers had all the momentum, with a 3-2 lead and a power play. Instead, he missed only Game 4 and returned to score the winning goal with 1:15 left in Game 5. A Claude Giroux turnover started the sequence, which gave the Penguins a 2-1 lead.

The play began with Couturier, of course, who flipped the puck over the stick of Penguins defenseman Jamie Oleksiak in the neutral zone to Scott Laughton. The 23-year-old deflected Olli Maatta's point shot past Flyers netminder Michal Neuvirth to tie the game at four.

A golden opportunity came 10 minutes later, as the Flyers were given just over a minute of 4-on-3 time looking to find a way to tie things.

Kris Letang's cross-checking penalty on Couturier put the Penguins in a pickle by killing a 4-on-3, and Letang got away with another when he exited the box and immediately tripped Couturier. Ten seconds after completing his hat trick, Guentzel grabbed his fourth on a handsome pass from Hornqvist to make it 7-4 Pittsburgh.
