After receiving a crushing Radko Gudas hit in practice, Sean Couturier suffered a torn MCL and has been playing at less than 100%.
However, the most improved Philadelphia Flyer in 2017-2018 showed that the injury was not affecting him on Sunday.
In Game 6 of the Flyers’ Eastern Conference quarterfinals matchup against the Penguins, Couturier scored one of the best goals of the playoffs.

Couturier turned Matt Murray on his side with the move. Despite having Patric Hornqvist draped all over him, the Flyers forward was still able to keep control of the puck and slip it by the Penguins netminder.
Couturier’s play was admirable as the Flyers forward bounced back into Philadelphia’s lineup while only missing one game with his MCL injury. He was a force as well, scoring four goals in his two games back from injury.
