Travis Konecny had his very first career hat trick to lead the Philadelphia Flyers past the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-2

PHILADELPHIA– Travis Konecny had a hat trick and the Philadelphia Flyers survived losing team MVP Sean Couturier to an injury in a 5-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday night.

Ivan Provorov scored and Oskar Lindblom included an empty-netter for the Flyers.

The Flyers swept their competitor in the two-game house set, but can just hope they will not lose Couturier for extended time. Couturier became the very first Flyers player in 33 years to win the Selke Prize as the NHL’s.
