2012 NHL Playoffs, Flyers Vs. Penguins: Game 5 Preview

The Pittsburgh Penguins extended their playoff series against the Philadelphia Flyers with a pretty convincing win on Wednesday night, but the only thing they've earned for sure is another elimination game on Friday night. The game starts at 7:30 pm ET and can be seen on the NBC Sports Network.

The Penguins certainly turned a lot of heads with their 10-goal performance in Game 4, but can they duplicate those results in another elimination game? They likely won't be able to score at nearly the same rate in Game 5, so Marc-Andre Fleury needs to be a lot better in this game then he has so far this series if he wants to get a win. The Flyers still scored three goals in that game, which is good enough to win a lot of games (well, maybe not in this series). Fleury needs to be much better if the Penguins are going to stay alive, again.
