Flyers blanked by Penguins in Game 4, 5-0

Forsberg now has five points through four games in the series.

Matt Murray recorded 26 saves, recording his second shutout of the series.

The Flyers face their first elimination game of the postseason when they travel to Pittsburgh for Game 5 on Friday.

No, it was the visitors who dictated terms to the Flyers right from the start Wednesday night at Wells Fargo Center, putting the defending champs on the verge of a ninth straight series victory.

The Flyers defense was short-handed before the puck even dropped, as newly-named Selke Award nominee Sean Couturier missed the contest with an injury he sustained in practice.

I'm sure some people will probably come in with some bids, but I don't have any interest in selling him, he's a great goalkeeper. The 33-year-old was set up by a teammate in training as he threw his body to unleash a side-volley to score a fantastic goal.

As the final frame opened, Philly needed four goals in the third period to even make things interesting - a task they had done a few times this season most recently in January against the Islanders. Just four and a half minutes in, Evgeni Malkin found nylon with a wrister near the net (from Sidney Crosby and Phil Kessel) to put Pittsburgh ahead 1-0 early.

Andrew Cogliano scored the lone goal for the Ducks, who were outscored 16-4 in the series and swept for the first time since 1999 against Detroit.

Crosby scored his fifth goal of the series and had an assist as the Pens whipped the Flyers, 5-0 in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia coach Dave Hakstol dismissed it as nothing unusual, but it shows that the Penguins' dominance over the Flyers this season hasn't been limited to their stars.

"I don't think we did a very good job of getting through the neutral zone or establishing any kind of forecheck", MacDonald said. Earlier in the sequence, Malkin flubbed the puck but Laughton failed to clear it down the ice.

With an assist on Malkin's opening goal, Crosby earned his 162nd career playoff point, tying Mario Lemiuex for most all-time in franchise history.

But Laughton, in the Penguins' defensive end, threw an ill-advised diagonal pass that Kessel intercepted and tipped to Malkin. His goal in the 2nd gave him sole possession.

With a 2-1 series deficit, some wondered whether the Flyers would move Claude Giroux back from left wing to center to go against Crosby. Cruising along and up 3-0, the Vezina Trophy finalist allowed Gabriel Landeskog's 5-on-3 power-play goal in the third and another on Alexander Kerfoot's tap-in off a rebound.

That's why the Penguins return to PPG Paints Arena with a chance to clinch the series. They failed to capitalize.
