Couturier inspires Flyers to win against Capitals in return

WASHINGTON -- Sean Couturier gave coach Alain Vigneault a thumbs up after warmups, and that was a sign that good things were about to happen for the Philadelphia Flyers.


Couturier played after missing 10 games with a rib injury and scored two goals and had an assist in the Flyers' 7-4 victory against the Washington Capitals at Capital One Arena on Sunday.


Couturier's goal 31 seconds into the third period broke a 4-4 tie and gave the Flyers the lead for good. The center's empty-net goal with 1:22 remaining closed the scoring and clinched a much-needed win for Philadelphia, which was coming off two come-from-ahead losses to the Boston Bruins (0-1-1).

The 20 best names available in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft

The 20 best names available in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft

The Canucks have drafted extremely well over the last couple years. No, I’m not talking about drafting future superstars or quality NHL depth; I’m talking about drafting players with great names. At the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, the Canucks selected one of the best names available in the fourth round when they picked defenceman Jack Rathbone. In 2018, they grabbed another defenceman with one of the best names in the draft when they got Jett Woo in the second round. That’s two elite names in back-to-back drafts. Add in some solid depth names like Petrus Palmu and Artem Manukyan, and the Canucks have clearly made out like bandits at the draft, name-wise.
