WASHINGTON - Flyers center Sean Couturier could do nothing but attempt to brace himself when he saw Washington Capitals left winger Alex Ovechkin barreling toward him. The 6-foot-3, 239-pound Ovechkin, a seven-time 50-goal scorer, can also pack some pop, and he leveled Couturier into the boards at the red line with 8 minutes, 49 seconds left in the second period. No penalty was called on what appeared to be a clean but awfully hard hit. That ended the evening for Couturier, who appeared to be seriously injured and went right to the dressing room.

Flyers left winger Scott Laughton left the ice on a stretcher Wednesday night after crashing into the boards with 3 minutes, 49 seconds left in the first period of the playoff game with the Washington Capitals at the Wells Fargo Center. Capitals defenseman John Carlson pushed Laughton below the left circle at the goal line and the Flyers winger slid into the boards. It did not appear to be a dirty hit by Carlson and there was no penalty on the play. Out of respect, players from both teams tapped their sticks as Laughton was transported off the ice on a backboard.

Evgeni Malkin can't really explain what's going on with the Pittsburgh Penguins. He'd rather just enjoy the ride. Malkin pounded home a rebound 1 minute, 31 seconds into overtime to lift the streaking Penguins to their sixth straight win, a 4-3 triumph over the visiting Washington Capitals on Sunday. "I have great confidence now, you know?" Malkin said. "You win six games, I think everyone has great confidence now. "I just am enjoying the game, you know? And having fun. " Considering the way things have been going for Pittsburgh, it's kind of hard not to. Malkin has now scored in six straight games, matching the longest streak in the league this year.

Alex Ovechkin could afford to be a bit rusty in his return to the Washington Capitals because goalie Tomas Vokoun was anything but on Saturday. Vokoun made 30 saves for his third shutout of the season and Alexander Semin scored on the second of Washington's two penalty shots in the Capitals' 3-0 win over the host Montreal Canadiens. Ovechkin was back in the Capitals lineup after serving a three-game suspension for his hit on Pittsburgh's Zbynek Michalek. Despite being held off the scoresheet, he was already looking forward to Washington's next game, in Boston.

After the Flyers were eliminated from their playoff series with the Washington Capitals in a 1-0 loss at the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday, the home crowd saluted them for their effort. So did the Capitals. Once leading three games to none in the best-of-seven series, the Capitals saw the Flyers earn two consecutive wins. It was the first time all season that Washington lost consecutive games in regulation. And on Sunday, the Flyers were fighting until the end, outshooting the Capitals by 11-6 in the final period.

At one end of the Wells Fargo Center ice, the Washington Capitals had begun a celebration tinged with relief, and along the boards near the middle of the rink, Claude Giroux stayed bent over at the waist, not skating, not watching the Capitals rub each other's head and tap each other's stick, not doing much of anything but dwelling. "Not good enough," he said later. "I'm pretty frustrated with myself. Got to find a way. Doesn't matter how it is. Got to find a way. " Six games, and Giroux, the Flyers' captain and leader and most important and complete forward, had not scored a goal.

The end is never easy even when you think it might actually be the start of something good. And so a half hour after his team's season concluded Sunday afternoon with a 1-0 loss against the more talented Washington Capitals, Flyers coach Dave Hakstol was reluctant to look too far ahead. "I'm disappointed . . . that we're not preparing for Game 7," Hakstol said following his team's six-game elimination by the Caps. "That's the overriding feeling that I have right now. I've been proud of this group all the way through.

Grit and goaltending have carried the Flyers to consecutive harrowing wins, enabling them to fight off elimination and reach Game 6 in their playoff series against the Washington Capitals on Sunday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center. They need more, however, to force a Game 7 against heavily favored Washington. If the Flyers are going to get within one win of equaling their Boston Miracle of 2010 - they lost the first three games in that series before jolting the Bruins en route to the Stanley Cup Finals - they need to have some quality offensive-zone time and need their power play, which is 1 for 21 in the series, to stop looking so disorganized.

Immediately after Friday's 2-0 loss to the Flyers, a stunned Washington Capitals team vowed to provide more congestion around the opposing goal. In failing to end the playoff series and giving the Flyers continued life, the Capitals paid Flyers goalie Michal Neuvirth his due but also suggested there wasn't enough traffic in front of the goal. While that may be simplifying things, the Flyers' ability to give Neuvirth a good view of Washington's shot barrage played a key part in the win, especially since they were outshot, 44-11.

They're thinking about it. They have to be thinking about it. How could they not be thinking about it? These are the Washington Capitals. This is the franchise that has lost 10 postseason series in which it held a two-game lead, including one last year. No NHL franchise has lost more, and the Capitals have been around only since 1974. They're younger than Jaromir Jagr. And here they are, having won the first three games of this first-round series against the Flyers, now facing a Game 6 at the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday, and they wouldn't be human, and they certainly wouldn't be Washington Capitals, if they weren't thinking about that history, and if it weren't weighing on them a bit. "I don't think this team has any playoff history.

WASHINGTON - It's no secret the Washington Capitals were trying to teach Flyers left winger Brayden Schenn a lesson for what they thought was a cheap shot in Game 4. Ten seconds into the game Friday, Washington right winger T.J. Oshie went after Schenn, starting a long center-ice fight at the Verizon Center. Schenn landed several punches and won the bout - and seemed to give the Flyers some early momentum. "Obviously, they didn't like the play I did in the last game, cross-checking.
